One Mignonne Swan

I know it’s a cliché but swans have been one of my favorite animals ever since I saw The Swan Lake Ballet as a kid (also the most famous park of the city I grew up in was named after them and feeding the swans was a big part of my childhood) and since earrings are the only piece of jewelry that I like “the more statement the better” I literally squeaked when I saw these Mignonne Gavigan swan earrings. They are literally my gifts to my own childhood (who was scared enough to wait until 12 to pierce her ears). They are so perfect that I find myself checking out mirrors constantly. Mignonne Gavigan is one of the most creative jewelry designers out there, you can always set her pieces apart even in a crowd, always fun and whimsical – like nothing you ever saw before. It’s hard to find earrings that can lift the whole outfit, even the simplest outfit, and still not look too over the top and she manages to do …

Dual Citizen

Like most people, I always catch myself saying, ‘if only I had more time on my hands’.  In the holistic sense of the meaning, this kind of challenge would only be counteracted by cutting back on the amount of hours I work, which would not seem like a practical solution, or let’s be honest a fun

The Best Rooftop In Venice

Into: Baroque Pearls

I never thought a day would come (before I turn 50) that I’d spend hours and hours lusting after pearl necklaces and earrings but it turns out all it takes is finding out there’s a disfigured, less polished and more rugged option out there: baroque pearls (or nucleated pearls). Thanks to brands like Esra Dandin, Sophie Buhai and 1064 Studio, we now have a lot of gorgeous options to shop from, price range $100 – thousands. Tip: pair pearl jewelry with chunky or delicate metal pieces you already own to make the look less girly and more quotidian. image sources: esra dandin, sophie buhai, w concept

New York City With Tiffany & Co. HardWear

As I walked down Mercer Street I felt a pinch in my stomach, you know that feeling that sits somewhere between anticipation, excitement and apprehension.  For as long as I’ve worked in this industry photographing and styling campaigns, I’ve experienced the pre-shoot jitters.  As Grace Coddington put it in her ‘Some Style is Legendary’ Documentary for […]

Mercer Street

When strolling through the Soho streets, you can’t help but stop and take in the scenery.

But there’s something particularly special about Mercer […]

Shop: Statement Earrings

If you’re following me on Instagram you probably already know that lately I’m obsessed – OBSESSED – with earrings. I had both my ears multiple-pierced for the first time since high school and suddenly everything was about statement earrings: a line of hoops, single ear metals, fringes and so on. I guess I’m somewhat lucky that I was always into jewelry, even when I wasn’t wearing any, that I bought some great statement pieces in the past like Anissa Kermiche Les Paniers Dorés or these fan earrings I bought from an Etsy shop almost 6 years ago. Of course that didn’t stop me from expanding the collection, I’m literally buying a new earring every 2-3 days.

Trend: Gold Jewels

Once a strong believer of less is more, especially when regarding the wearing of jewellery, I’ve recently found myself expanding my gold jewellery collection (which may or may not already include one too many statement earrings). Beyond the favourited fine and delicate, my recent obsession has been with the vintage inspired, and surprisingly, wearing more than just the […]

On My Mind: Religious Pendants

I think there are two types of people out there who wear religious jewelry: actually religious people and atheists who doesn’t care and just in it for the fashion. I belong to the latter group, though I usually refrain from wearing symbolic logos, flags, faces of all kind – not because I’m not political but because I don’t want to be mistaken for anything I’m not. Case in point, I have a David’s star necklace in my jewelry box since my childhood but haven’t worn it like ever because of all its religious and political weight that I don’t want to carry around my neck. I also have an old cross I bought in high school just because I love the shape and I think it’s time to dust it off & add some more medallions to the collection because lately I’m all about gold chunky chains and small religious pendants. image sources: karla’s closet, a gentlewoman, moodboard, source unknown from pinterest 1 & 2 Save

Houndstooth is back baby.  Originating in Scotland in the early 1800’s and then embraced by the upper class in the 1930’s as a symbol of wealth, you might say that the canine christened print has had a ‘checkered’ past.

Hoop earrings are not only acceptable but they are very much “the” jewelry of the fall season now.

Luis Barragán’s family “shocked and very sad” after architect’s ashes turned into diamond

A descendant of legendary Mexican architect Luis Barragán is outraged after discovering that his great-uncle’s cremated remains have been used to create a diamond ring. Tadeo Pintado Barragán Cervantes Omana has written a letter on behalf of several of the architect’s relatives, describing the “enormous outrage and deep sadness” on discovering that artist Jill Magid used Barragán’s ashes to create a two-carat diamond.

Coyote Negro

I’ve never been more grateful for those annoying Pinterest summer photos with perfectly tanned (and toned) women lying on endless sand beaches with the best pieces of accessories you’d never be able to pull of when sweating that much; because one of those led me to Coyote Negro, the Brooklyn based design project of Puerto Rican Art Director Melissa Hernández. She’s currently exploring jewelry as a sculptural wearable element and designing pieces that strive to surpass time and seasons without losing relevancy. She also collaborated with Los Tejedores, a project from Santo Domingo that links the tradition of weaving with natural materials with contemporary design, and created the perfect summer hat made of coconut leaf fiber (hand weaved in Haiti) and an adjustable strap made of natural tanned leather and white brass, handcrafted in NYC.

90’s Calling

I want to see the hands (comments) of all 90’s kids who walked around with a velvet stretchy choker for the better half of their childhood/teenage years after watching Leon: The Professional and I want them to tell me they are not getting sentimental about this 90’s trend coming back hard because I’ve been feeling weird. Around 10 years after that Leon era, on a hectic spring cleaning day, I got so mad at myself for ever thinking that thing was cool and swore to never ever wear anything like that again but here we are, shopping for tattoo chokers, velvet chokers or simply anything wrapped around your neck that’s a call from the 90’s. I wonder what my future self will say about these in 10 years… sources: etsy, acne, nasty gal, www 1 & 2, stolen stores, nyct clothing, brandy melville, man repeller, sweet adorable girls, vogue runway
