She’s a supermodel, a supermum and a street-style icon. She’s also got her own organic beauty label, Kora Organics, a line of teacups with teaware brand Royal Albert and two self-help books, Treasure Yourself and Empower Yourself. Now, Miranda Kerr can add “jewellery designer” to her resume.
After being the face (and muse) of Swarovski since 2013, the Australian model has been tapped for a two-part collaboration that’ll be out just in time for the holidays. The first collection, Diapason, features glam, party-ready silver-tone necklaces, bracelets and earrings. But the real stars are in the second collection, called Duo: fun, delicate pieces with various charms and coloured crystals, in a quirky mix of rose goldand silver-tone metals.
“Maybe it’s all the yoga that I’m doing, but I’m having a white-dress phase, which makes it easy to wear jewellery,” says Miranda, posing for a photo with fashion editor Ian Lee.
“I really like fine, delicate jewellery pieces – they make me feel like I’ve found something precious,” Miranda tells me in an interview at Innsbruck’s Adlers Hotel. “The pieces are versatile too – you can layer them, mix and match them. They really go with everything,” she adds.
And what kinds of charms are on these items, you ask? Miranda says there’s an evil eye that stands for protection, a heart for love, a star for light, a snowflake for uniqueness (“No two snowflakes are the same,” she quips), a wing for freedom and a four-leaf clover for luck.
For the record, Miranda’s personal fave is the evil eye. And she tells me that each symbol has a different coloured crystal paired with it – the star-shaped charms are complemented with light blue crystals, the four-leaf clovers go with green ones, and so on. “I really thought about the details in this collection,” she adds.
And who is Miranda giving these to as Christmas gifts? “My five best girlfriends whom I’ve known since my kindergarten days. Each one of them has a different personality, and all of them have kids now. They always get frustrated with me because I don’t like to talk on the phone. But every time they see me, everything becomes all right,” she says.
Prices of Miranda’s pieces for Swarovski start from $130 for a pair of earrings.
