Lately, fashion houses have been singing the same tune with the launch of new jewellery lines, be they fine, costume or – in the case of gucci and giorgio armani – haute. Perhaps it’s a reminder that in these discretionary times, bijoux often makes for a clever investment – and a whole lot of Fun. Introduced last month, roger vivier’s collection of crystal-festooned metal tiaras, bracelets, chokers, earrings and hair clips is inspired by the maison’s shoe buckles and is a maximalist’s dream. For its own venture into bling, luxury street wear label mcm ties up with british jeweller tateossian to create a collection crafted from a mix of 18k gold, steel, sterling silver, black diamonds and crystals. Drawing from munich’s dance music scene (techno in particular), the feminine yet witty pieces sport the likes of mini robots and disco balls.
