Lulu Frost Spring 2012 Presentation
Last Wednesday, Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost presented her Spring 2012 jewelry collection at her high-ceilinged New York showroom, formerly the original Lord & Taylor store. In line with the collection, called “Endless Summer”, the space was fittingly transformed into a beach scene, with models dripping in gold jewelry and decked in retro swimwear, lounging on beach chairs and blankets. Custom made surfboards hung from the air while the classic ’60s surf flick Endless Summer, an inspiration for the collection, was projected onto the wall.
This Lulu Frost collection was by far my favorite from the designer (maybe because I wanted every single piece for myself?). As the main element in the collection, Lisa used pear and marquise-shaped brass discs that linked together to form different statement necklace and earring silhouettes. The pieces were complemented by chunks of natural stone, vintage findings, and colored strips of suede. There a lot of soft-colored neturals—light pinks, greens, turquoises, and yellows—perfect for spring and summer. Overall, the collection felt very balanced between bold statement jewelry and organic pieces perfect for everyday wear. I particularly loved the the amazingly ornate ankle bracelets and upper-arm cuffs. All the jewelry, most importantly, still had the signature vintage-goes-modern Lulu Frost flair.
