Trend To Watch: Body Jewellery
What makes me happy? Seeing something beautiful - like: a beautifully shot campaign. Preferably on film. An unexpected email in my inbox, with the story of a brand that I didn’t know, that I feel in love with in 5 minutes. Hoping that I get a sick invite to event, where I can rock along wearing my chain armour feeling like some sort of 21st goddess.
Alighieri Atelier is a London-based jeweller and they just launched their new campaign is stunning. Its chain armour is insane, and unfortunately for us - the price tag is too. However, the price tag is representative of the numerous hours spent on all of these one-of-a-kind pieces – EVERY piece is handmade with interwoven chains and pearls – taking from a minimum of 5 hours to 40 hours to make one single piece. Is this enough to convince your wallet? If it’s not take a look at their campaign below.
These accessorise are the perfect touch, if you are looking to give a different spin off to your wardrobe this summer – especially for those who are heading to Burning Man this year. You might wander how to wear it - well, just layer the chained tops and bras on a plain t-shirt or silk slip dress. If you are cool enough wear just as it is. Send pic proof.
Body jewellery is making a comeback and it was already spotted earlier this year, with Paco Rabanne revamping its’s 1960s armour plate dress and bags - which was taken over my lots of influencers walking along the streets of Paris during fashion week in February. Might this be your thing? Summer fling? Thoughts?
