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.

Etc…
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.

M. Clifford x Pono by Joan Goodman



Currently searching for an alternative handbag? We may have found just the designer for you. While the “It” bag is supposedly a dead trend, we can give tangible evidence to the contrary as we constantly spot girls and boys alike carrying the latest Alexander Wang satchel, Celine tote or PS1 (if you don’t know you’d better ask somebody). Joan Goodman, as in PONO by Joan Goodman is working with M. Clifford and Fall ’11 marks their second season collaborating. Their work fits right in with the fashion set’s newest obsession; the Pouchette.

Gaia Repossi x Zadig et Voltaire



Zadig & Voltaire can’t collaborate enough. On the heels of their work with model and muse Erin Wasson, the brand has announced a new partnership with Gaia Repossi. Repossi, who serves as artistic director for her family’s line, Maison Repossi, has simultaneously managed to create stunning fine jewelry pieces and more accessible items like the chokers and cuffs she whipped up for Alexander Wang’s fall 2010 collection.

Pamela Love x TopShop



Topshop knows how to pick its collaborators. After its umpteenth season with Kate Moss, the brand finally moved on, leaving us to wonder which designer would be the next hit-maker for the megabrand. Turns out Pamela Love has been tapped by Sir Philip Green as the first US designer to partner with the brand on a line due out this April. The mini-collection will supposedly incorporate the “spirit of America.”

Club Monaco x Scosha


Oh Club Monaco. Always looking out for the little guy. The mega brand has scooped up Australian designer Schosha Woolridge of Scosha for a new in-store collaboration. The brand has always managed to maintain an image that keeps them out of the category of disposable fast fashion, and part of that is due to their commitment to featuring the designers they believe in. After all, when the brand featured James Coviello’s hats, they were sold at practically the wholesale cost, meaning Club Monaco is serious about making sure every single piece gets sold.

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.

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.

This by That: LaQuan Smith x Miriam Salat?


Which young and former heel toting NY fashion designer, who also happens to be a favorite of an American Vogue editor, is in talks with one of our favorite boho-chic fine jewelry designers? We can’t wait to see if this potential pairing changes the attitudes of the future SS11 minimalist armies or creates a hippie, demure, and utterly maximal set. Yes all those things are possible with these two and their clientele.
