Fashion and Jewellery Design Merge Once Again

Fashion and jewellery design will have another meeting of the minds. Jewellery designer Paris Kain and fashion designer Alexander Wang unveil collaborations this Valentine’s Day.

The jewellery designed from this collaboration will retail for $350- $975. If this is too steep for you, costume jewellery that evokes the same feel as this collection is available.

Paris Kain is the founder of Abraxas Rex, a New York based fine-jewellery company. He is noted for using materials like meteorite with tiny diamonds for pendants and quartz for rings.

Together they have designed a collection of silver cuffs and earrings. This is a collection that explores non-traditional methods of sporting your jewellery or costumer jewellery. Wang says, “We’re working with ways of wearing earrings that aren’t typical,” he says. “How they work on your body, how they hang. We want to push the meaning of embellishment and how people interpret jewelry.” For Wang, he wanted to create some that was very opposite of what we see in fashion today. This is why he ventures from the deconstructed, slouchy look to tailored, restructured pieces.

These looks will be . . . Futuristic yet animalistic. Modern yet prehistoric. Industrial yet refined.

For us costume jewellery lovers, check out the glass bead bracelet below. It gives shoppers the feel of the Alexander Wang collection for Abraxas Rex without the price. By choosing a glass material, the piece balances its modern and prehistoric vibe. Its heart-shaped glass beads make it a perfect Valentine’s Day gift .
