Another Fashion Week means another opportunity to ogle over the gorgeous jewels show-goers selected to complete their meticulously thought-out ensembles. Unlike the fashion-friendly week of September’s spring shows, this February brought a few days of extreme cold and snow and forced attendees to rethink their sartorial plans. Fortunately for us, the fashion folk are a brave bunch and most were generous enough to leave their coats unbuttoned for our jewelry viewing pleasure. The findings? Statement necklaces continue to rule, cuffs can be worn solo or in pairs, ear pieces are still in and rings can venture beyond the first knuckle. Check out some of our favorite pieces below:
What better a way for Charm & Chain to kick off Fashion Week than with an interview between me and reigning Queen of Accessorizing (and C&C designer), Rachel Zoe? Famous for her career as Hollywood’s premier stylist, Rachel Zoe is the author of “Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty, and Everything Glamour,” stars in her own Bravo reality TV series, “The Zoe Project,” and owns Zoe Media Group, which sends out daily newsletters with style and fashion tips. Her clothing and jewelry line launched last year to rave reviews, and her iconic style is emblematic of Rachel’s pioneering role in today’s world of edgy and modern fashion trends. Her namesake jewelry collection debuted on Charm & Chain this November, and represents Zoe’s affection for bold, Art Deco-inspired style. Naturally, when we had the opportunity to talk to Rachel, we snagged it and asked her some of our burning jewelry & style questions…enjoy!
