MUTED METALLIC

Tuesday 06.19.18

Though we're known all over the world for our slinky, shiny, mirror-like material made of tiny linked metal tiles, we also love coming up with new ways to showcase just how very versatile our signature metal mesh can be.  Typically highly metallized, bold and edgy, when colors are light and muted it can also be subtle, soft and tranquil.  Shown here in Matte Rose Gold, Satin Silver and Almond, our quilted crossbody looks good when paired with casual and classic staples like jeans and white tee, perfect for those breezy summer days.  Shop SYDNEY >

SONNETS ARE FULL OF LOVE by Christina Rosetti

Tuesday 05.08.18

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstar while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.

Moms deserve the best.  HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY !

WHEN ART IMITATES LIFE IMITATES ART

Monday 04.09.18

Art.  The bind that links generations and more rarely, centuries together.  It's a moment stood still.  Captured beauty of that place and time, locked into forever.  And as people in creative industries know, we often look to the past for inspiration to create, or even recreate, that moment again.  It could be a certain detail of the piece or sometimes it's the color or even, just the feel.  A way to reinterpret that very moment.  It's when art imitates life and life imitates art.  Our Vienna, a reincarnation of an Art Nouveau favorite...Gustav Klimt.

AWARDS SEASON

Awards season is here and while most are trying to get acquainted with all the nominated shows, movies and players, the nominees and their stylists are busy putting together the perfect outfit.  And we absolutely LOVE seeing what ends up on the red carpet!  The flashing lights, the gowns, the accessories...oh the accessories!  Peak fabulousness and we're all about it.

If you're anything like me then you've done your research and your Fall shopping to-do list is ready and waiting to be (patiently) checked off.  Along with the boots, the knits, the velvets and the (faux) furs, the Western/bohemian vibe wouldn't be complete without fringe.  And that's where we have you covered.

METAL MESH MOMENTS

Tuesday 08.29.17

Metal mesh and fashion have had a long history together - flappers and old-hollywood movie starlets carrying metal mesh pochettes on the crooks of their arms, disco era halter tops and the flashing lights of Studio 54, the '90s with the peak of Versace and the supermodel boom...which brings us to the world of today.

It's no secret that metal mesh is back again and in just about every It girl's wardrobe.  The latest style icons, models, social media influencers...even the former FLOTUS, have all been seen flaunting the avant garde material, looking beyond dazzling.  We're relishing in all the glittering attention.  And so will you.

Though a slinky dress would make a grand entrance for the ultimate party girl, the look may not be for everybody.  Sometimes a shot of glamour is just what's needed to perfect the outfit. And if a glimmer is all you need, then we've got the perfect accessory for you.  (For the latest styles, click here.)

PRINCE FOREVER

Friday 04.21.17

On this day, one year after his transition to the afterworld, we remember the icon, the artist and the man.  Known as a musical innovator, a multi-instrumentalist and singing abilities encompassing a wide vocal range, Prince's music continues to transcend us .

Loved.  Missed.  Remembered. Prince forever.
(Here he is wearing vintage Versace metal mesh.)
