It's here! The shop recently received a bounty of Trousseau jewellery, 25 pieces of which are now available to buy online in the New Arrivals section.
Trousseau is the creation of young Indian jeweller and entrepreneur Urvi Vora. The company's archaic French name (translated: 'the bundle of possessions that a bride assembles for her marriage') refers to a series of events that inspired Urvi to set up the company: a realisation she had, whilst helping a friend shop for her wedding, that few of the products available to buy were personalised or remotely unique. This led to her decision to make all Trousseau creations either bespoke or in small quantities, thereby retaining the work's individuality.
The Trousseau range's nod to traditional Indian jewellery is clear, but Urvi's designs are neater and cleaner than their predecessors. Bold shapes and sharp lines give her pieces a modern feel, and their simplicity means they're very wearable - my customers tell me they're able to match their Trousseau jewellery with plenty of different outfits.
Philippe Ferrandis has provided us with the perfect way to bring summer warmth through to the colder seasons: his ultra-bright neon 'Bounty' range. These simple designs stand out due to his masterful use of distinct shapes, bold colour pops, and subtly contrasting finishes that see smooth opalescent crystal pieces paired with reflective faceted glass. The neutralising white stones are key: they prevent the pieces from looking too gaudy.
Their understated design means these bright pieces are surprisingly versatile. They look great against clothing in muted tones, monochrome outfits or perennially-stylish grey shades. To avoid overkill, stick to a just a few neon accents per outfit.
