Christopher Lee Sauve for Nyla Boutique

13 Sep

Last week, I hopped over to the ominously named ‘Scandalous party’ by Nyla Boutique, held at the super cool members club Home House. Home to several up and coming, niche designers, Ambi and Navi (owners of Nyla) have a great eye and I covet pretty much every piece of jewellery on the site. My Joomi Lim bracelet always gets admiring glances so if statement jewels are your bag, make sure you check out the jewellery section too. 

The party was to celebrate the launch of Christopher Lee Sauve’s new collection ‘Scandal‘ on super cool online fashion and accessory retailer Nyla Boutique’s site. No stranger to scandal, ex Alexander Wang art director Christopher gained notoriety with his “Save Anna” tshirts, referencing rumours that La Wintour was being replaced. Influenced by current events and pop art, his tongue-in-cheek tshirts capture a snapshot in time. Of the collection, Christopher said “I think of scandals and tabloid papers as being a huge part of our culture. This collection idea was based on morals and choices that have been made that have then been blown up to crazy proportions”. 



Covting bad-ass Joomi Lim jewels

7 Dec

Last month, I attended the Push PR press day and saw what lots of independent brands have in store for us next season. One brand that caught my eye was Joomi Lim, the dangerous looking spike jewellery was right up my street. Although the name may not be familiar, I’m sure you will have seen some of Joomi’s work – she started out designing headbands and hair pieces and some were seen on none other than Blair Waldorf! This is Joomi’s first jewellery line and I loved the contrast between prim and proper pearls and bad-ass spikes. These striking pieces are just crying to be worn out with a gorgeous gown, battered biker boots and a ton of attitude.
The collection is available at NYLA Boutique and my stand-out pieces include the mace earrings, studded cuff and bracelet and . Santa, if you’re reading, I’d love to discover one of these bad boys in my stocking. I’ve been good this year, I promise!

Push PR SS11 press day

6 Nov

I’m sure you guys must know about Push PR by now, I only wrote about their Christmas press day last month. They have a great portfolio of small, independent brands such as Kandee shoes, Jasper Garvida, Upper Street, Nyla and Eastern Mystic so of course I wanted a sneak peek into what they had in store for us for next season. Here are my favourite pieces and things that have shot to the top of my lust list: 

Joomi Lim at Nyla Boutique

These gorgeous, badass studded pieces by new jewellery brand Joomi Lim caught my eye straight away. I loved the studded bracelets and also the pearl and stud necklaces for the contrast between prim pearls and kickass studs. These pieces will be available via Nyla, which is a new online boutique specialising in eclectic brands from New York and LA…hence Nyla! 

Upper Street

Upper Street was founded by sisters who basically got tired of trying to find the perfect shoe. Who hasn’t been there?! They wanted to bring their own shoe designs to life, and Upper Street was born. It’s not just an outlet for their own designs, anyone can log on and create their own beautiful, handmade shoes. They also collaborated with Jasper Garvida to create some stunning snakeskin gladiator sandals. They’re on the far right-hand side, samples of Upper Street designs are displayed. 

Kandee shoes

I’m a big Kandee fan. It’s quite amazing to think that the founder of the company is just 21 years old, I think Kandee shoes are really coming into their own and carving out a niche in the market. If anyone wants to get me the red sparkly pair, I’d love you forever! 

EC One

EC One is a jewellery boutique which started in Exmouth Market, hence the name. They have since opened a second boutique in Notting Hill and count the likes of Alexis Bittar and Alex Monroe among the brands stocked at this super little independent jewellery store. 

Jasper Garvida

I’m a pretty big Jasper fan, I covered his Spring/Summer 2011 collection in this post, so I won’t write too much about it here. I took lots of detailed pictures to show the quality of the fabrics and those amazing gold disc sequins.
