LIBERTINE: Designer Johnson Hartig is a magical magpie at heart. We were floored with the stacks of necklaces that featured vibrant beaded skulls, Chinese snuff bottles and fruit. Wide chokers of iridescent crystals adorned the models’ necks. The inspiration for the collection -the 1930s, Art Deco, China and opium dens to name a few. Standout piece? The embroidered watch covered jacket decorated with eye buttons.

JEWELS FROM THE RUNWAY: Tom Ford RTW Fall 2018

What comes to mind when one sees the latest RTW collection from Tom Ford? Edgy, extreme, electric and perhaps a dash of 1980s Rodeo Drive,  Beverly Hills meets 90210 Glamazon. Too much? The more the merrier. We fell in love with the oversized crystal hoops and Edie Sedgwick ’60s style triple crystal floral earrings that decorated the models’ ears. Wonder woman crystal encrusted cuffs were the highlight of the show.Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18Tom Ford RTW FW18
