Not since Roberto Cavalli’s amazing Ming Vase Dress from the 2005 fw collection has anyone else attempted a vase-inspired look to much success, until now. Mary Katrantzuo, the queen of prints, has impressively re-imagined the colourful Chinese vases as well as Fabergé eggs, Meissen porcelain and cloisonné enamel, onto the structured dress with her vivid prints. Relatively new to the scene, she has delivered every season translating her boundless imagination onto her vivid prints. Having touched on enlarged jewelries, perfume bottles, home interior and lampshade skirts… perhaps next will be her tribute to her Grecian roots? images from Style.comRead More

Simply stunning ‘jewellery collars’ made in leather and raw silk by Eleven Objects.
Eleven Objects was started when Linh Thi Do and Christine Rhee simultaneously decided that their wardrobes would be vastly improved by a different kind of accessory.

Christine Rhee studied architecture at Princeton University. She designed her eponymous line CRHEE, which was featured in Marie Claire, WWD, and Teen Vogue and has also worked as a marketing coordinator for BOYY.
Fall/winter 2011 is the first season for Eleven Objects.
When I find myself having trouble choosing just six looks from a collection to put on urban taster, it means the designer has done an amazing job, creating lustworthy visions at each and every turn. Parbal Gurung has done just that with spicy Vermillions, the faintest Pinks and the most amazing looking Silver, Grey and White pieces to die for. images from Style.com
Janna Syvanoja creates wonderfully dimensional jewellery from paper.
The process of making my recycled paperjewellery pieces, involves a slow, “natural” technique. By curving each slice of paper around the steelwire, one by one, one after another, it is as if the piece grows into its shape by itself. This way the character of wood, paper’s original material, is preserved in the piece — as is also the association to the whole organic world, the way it builds itself, being in constant change, traveling in time.
Printed paper has also an additional reality, the information it contains. Now, one can only see separate words and letters, that have been transformed into graphical patterns on the surface of the piece. The previous content of the material referred to communication between people — message and expression. A piece of jewellery is worn for the same purpose.
