Purity and peace is the design philosophy of this design studio in Taiwan that produced these cute animal rings and “dressman” necklaces. The lifelike animal masts on the rings are due to each piece being handmade with resin and metal, executed through concrete and skilled technical art.
Understated elegance meets rock ‘n roll is how we would describe these intricate pieces from Felder Felder. Brainchild of German-born, London-based designers, Daniela and Annette Felder, this bbrand has been making waves amongst fashion folk. Fans of their striking leather accessories include Gwyneth Paltrow and Florence Welsh of Florence and the Machine.
Buttery soft leather are at the core of the designs for their accessories, so one can expect leather cuffs with strands of coloured fur and bracelets with screws and studs.
Created by two sisters – Yaz and Emel, Ottoman princesses and descendants of the King of Egypt, we were surprised at how contemporary these accessories are as compared to their royal roots.
The duo have gained work experiences with designers like Jeremy Scott, Christian Lacroix and Martin Margiela. Inspired by icons of popular culture, their key pieces include a Ziggy Stardust brooch and a Karl Lagerfeld necklace.
Originally specializing in quirky home ware and stationery, owner Carmel Taylor derives a lot of inspiration from music, art and graffiti art. With materials such as Perspex teamed with gold and matt black chains, these architectural pieces are classy and opulent,
ActuallyActually have always been our pick for having the best choice of indie fashion labels, from Lazy Oaf to Won Hundred and RAD by Rad Hourani, we’re not really counting on these whimsical accessories to stay on the shelves for long.
