Can’t get enough of green lately.
When I used to live in New York, I would swing by New York Adorned on a regular basis to fawn over their collection of unusual and exquisite jewelry. Recently, while in New York, we stumbled upon their newly expanded shop Love, Adorned in Nolita. The store is impressive – with the most well edited collection of jewelry at every price range, unique home accessories, and other lust worthy trinkets. I couldn’t resist purchasing an amazing brass and pyrite Marly Moretti bracelet. So in love. And so patiently waiting for them to open an online shop . . .
I usually associate spring with flowers, birds, and nature, as I’m sure many of you do too. But what Mary Katrantzou has done with spring’s most predictable motif is uncommon to say the least – abstractly blending technology and mankind with nature. Inspired by John Chamberlain‘s crushed-car sculptures, Katrantzou incorporated the toughness of metal into her collection: literally, with actual pieces of tin appliqued to the fabrics and figuratively, with prints made up of metal objects and graphics. Combine that with flowers, fish and scales and once again, we’re blown away by just about everything Mary touches.
Lulie Wallace is attracted to all things alien, where upon closer inspection, objects are distinguished by their uniqueness and character. Her ‘aliens’ take form in a lime green tabletop, a magenta shadow, or in vibrant teal greenery. Her color choices and bold backgrounds are so happy inducing!
Polka dots + triangles, gingham + plaid, floral + floral, animal print + tie dye, and stripes + zig zags. Go ahead, surprise yourself and mix it up this season! We dare you.
