Jewellery at LFW15

I love jewellery as much as I love clothes, so when I visited the Jewellery Designer Show Rooms during London Fashion Week back in February, it was a feast for the eyes!

KATTRI is a contemporary jewellery brand set up by Amanda Debrasi whose designs aim at creating beauty and richness by mixing simple lines and pure shapes with gems at the focal point.

I adored this multidimensional Triple Dodecahedron Ring made of 18ct gold and black diamond. So eclectic and eye catching!

One of my favourites was the Qudrant Short Ring made of 9ct Rose gold and rose quartz.

Each piece of jewellery is hand-turned on a lathe from blocks of resin and Perspex. The fine jewellery pieces are all set with white, blue and pink sapphires and each season a new exclusive solid stone column is added to the collection.

I just could not get enough of the striking colour combinations! Stunning!

I loved this Pétale 2 ring with a feminine floral design from AW15 collection featuring two petals in an architectural positioning.

I am a fan of silver so this Square cut double strand bangle in 925 Sterling Silver struck a cord with me.

Melanie Georgacopoulos is yet another fine jewellery designer who, with her M/G collection continues to explore the endless aesthetic possibilities of the pearl as the epicentre of the modern woman’s accessory. Seemingly vulnerable and feminine yet tough and enduring the pearl’s symbolic contradictions are poised throughout each collection to create contrasts of texture and feel, toughness and volume. Her designs are certainly very wearable and ageless!

I fell in love in this Rose Gold Icon Ring – a statement piece from the Icon Collection, perfectly geometric, this bold design compliments all styles.

These Icon Fine Drop Earrings also caught my eye! The classic shapes of the Icon ring are here reinvented in the warm hues of rose gold with graduated brown and white diamonds. Elegant and luxurious, the earrings glitter in the light for the ultimate, unassuming glamour.

With Sophie Dahl at the catwalk’s forefront, Temperley does not disappoint in floor sweeping floaty dresses and jumpsuits that provide an easy and elegant alternative to gowns, bold floral embroidery on velvet and opulent sheer chiffon, not to mention, the show-stopping dense matte silver sequined culotte suit.

The designer made London Fashion Week even more inclusive and accessible by putting on a runaway two pregnant models alongside models of different ages ultimately reiterating who her target audience is!
