Aloha from Hawaii

by Alexandra May | July 09, 2015 | 0 Comments

Continental style by way of the Pacific Islands: my latest shipment from Philippe Ferrandis's Paris workshop draws its inspiration all the way from the shores of Hawaii. Philippe's celebrated skill with colourways sees the collection's soft blues, teals and sea greens contrasted and complemented with flashes of warm coral, pale lilacs and vivid limes to create a hazy, Hawaiian-postcard colour scheme.

The earrings in the collection, though simple and unfussy, are expertly designed: a milky, opaque glass stone sits atop a glistening, intricately cut swarovski and an extra-long iridescent resin teardrop with a textured surface completes the piece. 

This gorgeous, glowing jewellery deserves to shimmer in strong summer sunlight, whether at home in the city or on holiday at the beach. It's wonderfully light to wear, so the hook fittings will not weigh heavily on pierced ears, and the clip-on earrings feature rubber pads to ensure hours of comfortable wear.

This statement necklace, with its tessellating ovals, triangles and oblongs, is a perfect piece of colourful summer jewellery, with softened neons sitting alongside perennially-fashionable pastel shades. My personal favourite, though, is this bold collar, which Philippe has given a sharp, modern edge with the addition of a chunky silver chain. 

Enjoy browsing!

The Scarf Ring

by Alexandra May | September 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

I talked about rings back in July and I'm so relieved that they weren't just a summer fling. Rings are here to stay, and there is nothing more uplifting than dash of colour to take you through to autumn.

Again, the bigger the better when it comes to rings with clashing shades and sparkling stones. But don't think that these fabulous cocktail rings have to be reserved solely for the hands. Scarves - fine knitted or silk, rather than the thick chunky wool variety - are huge for this autumn/winter, whether they're tucked into our coat belts or draped around the neck. However, I LOVE wearing mine with a chunky cocktail ring, it's sophisticated and yet practical too. The perfect solution if you're not used to wearing large rings.

So whether it's your favourite Hermes scarf or a vintage find, you can't go wrong with these stunning rings from Philippe Ferrandis's new collections 'Copacabana' and 'Calipso'. The large clusters of sparkling Swarovski crystals in shades of pink, turquoise, red, green and yellow are just too tempting. Or for something a little more delicate I also adore, Ferrandis's 'Flower Power' rings with Swarovski crystals and pretty perspex flowers in pinks and reds or blue and lime green.

An Explosion Of Summer Colour

by Alexandra May | July 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

For the first time in as long as we can remember, we're having a FABULOUS summer! It's hot, the sun is shining (most of the time) and we can enjoy wonderful spur-of-the-moment picnics in the park, days by the sea, even just simple time in the garden. And doesn't it make life seem, well, just so much better? It's amazing what a bit of warmth and sunshine can do.

Here at Alexandra May, we're celebrating with Philippe Ferrandis' stunning 'Flower Power' collection, which couldn't be more summery if it tried. Hot shades of orange, tangerine, pink, red, turquoise, lime green and blue, burst with flowers, Swarovski crystals, and glass and perspex stones.

So let's make the most of this glorious summer while it lasts!
