My love of the Earring Boutique is well documented – interesting designs, reasonable prices and trend-led collections… There’s always something I want and you never see anyone else with their bits, which is definitely meant as a compliment not bad marketing on their behalf!
I’ve had their Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook sitting around for a while, but it’s only now that the sun is actually shining that I’ve got round to posting them. Designer Ashley Wells has created four stories for this season inspired by some decidedly glamorous-sounding themes – Antibes, Zanzibar, Belle Epoque and Lumiere. Contrasting metals are key for this season abd there’s also an emphasis on Swarovski Elements which are set in most of the pieces.
The two nautical designs above are my stand-out pieces. I’m a sucker for an anchor motif and these earrings and bracelet from the Antibes collection are a more sophisticated take on the nautical trend than the usual red and blue plastic designs that anchors often seem to attract. They’re just calling for a Breton top and glass of Champagne on a yacht, amirite?
