One of my style resolutions for 2012 was to work harder at finding accessories to compliment the way I dress. I’ve talked before about not being a huge accessories fan; I’m quite simple in my choice of clothes and I’ve often been of the view that jewelry clutters an otherwise perfectly beautiful outfit (several of my fashion blogger friends are likely throwing daggers at me at this point, yes, I know who you are lol).
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the enormously talented Israeli designer Liat Ginzburg for my Lookbooks column (you can read the interview here) and I was totally blown away by her statement necklaces. Her designs have featured in Vogue Italia and Grazia France and I’d love to see them widely distributed here in the US. Made from plastic, perspex, rubber and wood components, her pieces can transform an outfit in seconds. This necklace from her Technicolour collection is one of my favourites:
“The designs express a contemporary view on the 90`s fashion and club scene, and are characterized by bold colorfulness and blunt, ‘disharmonic’ combinations. Liat’s influences range from the night life scene, through to her career researching and teaching about art and all the way to her poem writing and art photography.”
Although perhaps not typical Austin fare, my style is my style and I wore the necklace for a night out along sixth street in the city. I’ll be very sad to leave Texas on Wednesday, it’s such a great place to visit.
Do check out Liat’s designs if you have the chance! She has several collections ranging from Dare, a bold display of colourful jewels, to Chandelier, showcasing some beautiful multicoloured stones and the more refined Clear.
How am I doing on my New Year’s style resolution, Blog Reader? Any tips for me? If you know my style, how should I be accessorising?
