Never heard of Uribe ? You will know this jewelry brand very soon, as Karl Lagerfeld and Colette are already mad about these super graphic powerful jewels. Karl even wore a Uribe piece the day of his Chanel SS15 show! Not bad for a very young brand, launched earlier this year by the these two pretty birds : Tiffany Hargraves and Sion Philips. Tiffany has worked in the accessories/jewelry industry for 10 years working at Loewe, then at Chanel’s studio with Laetitia Crahay, and more recently for Kenzo and Swarovski as a free lance. Sion has been working in advertising and is obsessed with lines and design. What a perfect alchemy! After several months travelling (California down to Peru!), observing, enjoying, being inspired, seeking for the best suppliers, they came back in London and set up Uribe. Why Uribe ? Because it’s my mum’s name and Sion finds it very graphic ! I really like Uribe’s DNA, the pieces are at the same time bold, colorful, fun and above all NEW, I’ve never seen this kind of design before. Well done !

Here is our latest crush, Lucy Folk, a pop festive jewelry brand that comes from Melbourne! We discovered Lucy’s funky world during Paris fashion week and we got immediately mad about her. She does amazing jewelry (oh these golden crochet pineapple earrings, hum, yummy), and since recently she starts making bags and sunnies! Here is her latest video, made for the launch of her Sugar line (someone who gives food names to her collection is obviously someone who loves life!!!).
Congrats Lucy Folk!

So this our third common post with the Particules Complémentaires, and this time we had to cogitate on wood. At the very beginning I thought, what am I gonna do ? Scandinavian architecture or minimalism is not for me at all. But considering it, I thought of the luxuriant side of wood. Many things had come up to my mind, like the wood jewels made in the 1930′s. Inspired by Art Nègre, jewelry designers used wood and mix it with precious gems. Today I appreciate what designers like Lydia Courteille, Belmacz or Aurelie Bidermann do with wood. I also thought of Nancy Cunard and of the wooden bangles she wore on both arms. I’ve always been fascinated by the avantgarde style of this rebellious aristocrat who fought against racism and married an Afro American jazzman. Some pics of a wonderful style here… I also remembered the wooden Art deco clutches of Begart, a young Turquish designer I discovered 6 months ago at Premiere Classe. Then I thought of shoes, the xxl wooden wedges I’ve always loved, those inspired by the 1970′s and the famous Biba shop (remember THE shop where all the hipsters were shopping at that time!). So I said to myself, you should look into your own wardobe. And guess ? Many pairs of shoes with wooden heels or soles! I’ne never thought my wardrobe could contained so much wood… I’ve concocted these kitsch collages (I’m very much in kitsch right now!) on the 4 pairs I often wear. My only regret ? Not to have bought these crazy Celine SS2010 wedges. 4 years after, I’m still loving them. It’s funny how you don’t get tired of some pieces….
