A brand which really caught my eye at LFW was Michelle Lowe-Holder’s jewellery and accessories. The highly individual, complexly folded pieces were dramatic and eye catching and really could make an outfit.
“Victorian flowers and cream crocodiles” is the trend for SS’12 from Michelle Lowe-Holder. The accessory collection celebrates beauty found in nature and draws inspiration from an abstract combination of tiny flowers, cream crocodiles, snakeskin and wings translated into cuffs, collars and necklaces. Each piece truly is unique as vintage end of line floral ribbons and leather cut offs are used alongside a new sustainably produced paper-like fabric “kefi” from Italy.
One off woven floral ribbons create new “basket” cuff structures as well as new collection style “Ribbon link” necklaces and cuffs which are hand woven with metal links to create a rich and modern way of recycling vintage ribbons.
