Alberta Ferretti FW12
The act of coloring on this coat had me thinking of the children’s book, Harold and his Purple Crayon. Then I remembered that Spike Jonze was going to make a film of that story but it never happened.
Purple can really mess with your mind sometimes. Sigh. This coat is lovely though.
Bones and Feathers
Here I go again, rambling on about another jewelry designer. But that’s ok, that’s what I am here for, right. (Please say yes, to validate my blogging existence.) If I see it and I love it; why wouldn’t I share it? Meet Bones and Feathers.
I got a chance to view the Spring ‘13 collection (in the blue boxes) that has an art deco influenced but balanced with an earthy sensibility filled with arrowheads and cosmic geometric patterns.
The Fall ‘12 pieces are a bit more literal to the brand name with vertebrae and bone castings and are available on their site. A major statement piece is the snake bone necklace. I especially loved the blue cylinder pieces with rattlesnake vertebrae bracelet (top left).
I was also pleased to hear that the jewelry is all made in LA. Since moving here from NY, I have to say, it is really refreshing to meet so many designers that are producing here in the US.
