For our second look, I made Ania wear this stunning satin dress from Lanvin and a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. I wanted to “break” the outfit by putting her in this Altuzarra nylon parka. The result? Quite badass if you ask me. As a back-up option, I also used this terrific navy cape from Singaporean brand Raoul who is currently invading the online retail scene as of late. Everyone from Luisa via Roma to Net-a-Porter to yes, Shopbop… they’re all carrying Raoul.
I’m all for cheap thrills, no secret about that. Imagine the delight when I saw this super chic wire necklace.
I got from the Dilli Haat market in New Delhi a few days ago for around ten US dollars. Awesome eh? Wear it underneath a shirt collar and voila! A touch of metallica doesn’t hurt anyone. Also looks terrific with white shirts as long as you don’t get it wet.
I got myself a gorgeous little treat from Fallon jewelry sometime last week in the form of this spikes n' crystal stunner. It's a piece from their Resort 2011 collection.
NYC-based Dana Lorenz (of Fenton/Fallon) makes some of the chicest and edgiest jewelry out there. Her collaboration with J.Crew earlier this year brought her to my radar and I've been tracking her baubles since then.
Check out this video I took of some really cray cray cocktail rings I saw at a shop in Taipei. I’ve lost a few days’ worth of sleep over them.
The rings are soo beautiful but they’re so expensive. We’re talking about US$400 and up, as much as US$1500+ each! These are not your ordinary fancy jewelry. Some were made using semi-precious stones and the craftsmanship is incredible.
A friend and I found it funny that we were complaining how expensive they were… because the shop is just an ordinary stall. I can’t even imagine how much these would go for if they were sold at a store in North America or in Europe.
I dunno. There were a few pieces that I really, really want but I had to walk away empty-handed because I have other priorities can’t afford them whereas my friends who can afford didn’t buy them because really, the prices were too much for what they were.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs.Repossi in our hotel while on the queue to ask our concierge for a cab. She came up to me and introduced herself. She liked what I wore a few
days ago, specifically my printed harem trousers. She's a lovely woman.
They own Repossi, fine jewelers from Monaco. Her daughter, the super chic Gaia Repossi (photo of her as a child above — see the Anya Hindmarch bag), frequently appears on street-style blogs. Gaia also collaborated with Alexander Wang for jewelry that was used on his show.
