Mandy Coon x Made Her Think

Between Eddie Borgo, Helen Yarmak, Bottega Veneta and Delfina Delletrez, and countless others, trust us when we say there’s certainly an insect jewelry vibe in the air.  Which is perfect timing for Mandy Coons new bug heavy jewelry line with Meredith Kahn of  Made Her Think. Coon launched her first  RTW collection in Spring 2010 and lured us into her dark, gothic world of geometric design.  It was Coon’s love of vintage jewelry that caused her to stumble across an old bug brooch, which quickly became the inspiration to a truly unique collection for Fall 2011.

The collection is comprised of four pieces: a necklace, a bug ring, a small brooch and a large brooch.  The pieces are Rhodium based, and some are wrapped in her signature leather and studded with Swarovski crystals.  The collection captures both the gothic qualities of Coon as well as the Edwardian darkness that resonates in Made Her Think.  Who would of thought bugs could be so enticing? But that still doesn’t mean we’re looking forward to mosquito season.  All will be available through Meredith Kahn’s Made Her Think line.

Ruffian x Tuleste Market x Savor Silver

Fashion week is usually the time for designers to get caught up in collaboration fever and Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais were no exception. For their Fall 2011 show, the duo abandoned their usual choice of Christian Louboutin footwear and settled on designers Satu and Celeste Greenberg of Tuleste Market. While most of you know Tuleste for their shining baubles and statement gold, the designers have recently taken their signature high gloss and metal work to footwear.

Vena Cava x Uniqlo

Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock have cultivated quite the fan base with their wonderfully eclectic line Vena Cava. Their recent ‘90s inspired Fall 2011 collection was a hit with editors and now the duo has arranged their next project, a collaboration with fast fashion staple Uniqlo. Uniqlo has gained a heavy circulation of extroverted and introverted fashionistas with its wildly successful line with Jil Sander, +J. And while +J may get the minimalists through those doors, Uniqlo is clearly seeking a more trend-oriented client with their latest venture.

Nine West is set to cash in on a couple superstar designers in the coming months. The accessories chain has brought in CFDA award-winner and Alaia protégé Sophie Theallet on a capsule collection of shoes and accessories this spring. Though Theallet doesn’t produce accessories for her own collection, the charming and slightly country aesthetic she brings to Nine West might be an indicator of what we can expect from her burgeoning line in the future. For Theallet it’s about comfort and the beauty, for instance the flats are foldable. Score one for office dressing,but wait, there’s more.

Zadig et Voltaire x Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson is back on the collaboration front. After her line with RVCA took us everywhere from the Tent at Bryant Park to ABC Carpet & Home, the critically panned collection was finally put to an end, much to the chagrin of Wasson fans but not so much for consumers. Wasson’s taken the time to concentrate on her Low Luv jewelry, but now the model/muse is back to clothing design, working on pieces for Zadig et Voltaire’s Fall 2011. Wasson is set to star in the brand’s summer 2011 and fall 2011 campaigns, and we’re sure the model had a few suggestions to offer during fittings.
