Asian American designer Ellen Himic draws inspiration for her eponymous jewelry line from the grand cathedrals of Europe. One of my favorites is the Rosette ring from her “Corinthian” collection. It’s everything I want for spring — floral-inspired, pastel-hued and bold.
The rosette setting is an interpretation of the rose shaped ornamentation found in Paris, while the beading is an interpretation of the astragal.
But it’s not just accessories that are getting the floral treatment. Floral prints are so easy to wear this season, especially the teeny tiny prints. Like this dress by Death by Drone, a cheeky line of ready to wear from two Parsons grads, Asian American Tiff and her partner Deb.
This season, there’s a fresh new way to accessorize — headwear. From oversized bows to delicate headbands, you now have a new way to update the same ol’. And more and more brides are forgoing the veil for the reception and donning a fabulous headpiece.
Arturo Rios creates fabulous headpieces worthy of any formal occasion. Like this Gisel headpiece (we featured it in our April/May 2008 issue) — an oversized, floral-inspired, couture-like piece worthy of any Sex and the City wedding. After all, it’s your day — go all out!
