LBD & ME
The third post in our style series on Adorn London is based around Geo Deco, a SS12 jewellery trend highlighted on our Trends page. The idea behind the LBD & Me series, is to show you how jewellery can transform an outfit and how the same LBD can be accessorised differently to reflect a different mood or look. I am upping the ante and going uber luxury for this one.
1.Take the same simple black dress and decide on the main colours that support the theme. For ‘Geo Deco’ This green Gucci fur shawl and the YSL gold toe capped slingbacks are the perfect accessories to complement the look.
2. Look at the four main jewellery categories: Earrings, Neckwear, Wristwear and Rings and make sure your complement includes at least two of these pieces. I have selected Tiffany & Co.’s new, Art Deco inspired bangle for the mesmerising fan-shaped display of diamonds set against the striking background of hand carved black onyx. In addition the earrings form part of Ralph Lauren’s Art Deco capsule collection and echo the geometric simplicity, stye and sophistication of the deco period. The vintage diamond ring created in the 1930s and now held at Fourtane Antique dealers, completes the look.
3.Think about the materials and colourways that will support your look. In this case, onxy, green agate, emerald and diamonds set in yellow gold, rose gold and platinum are ideal and work very well with our LBD and ‘Geo Deco’ theme.
