JEWELS FROM THE RUNWAY: Anna Sui, Libertine and Naeem Khan FW18 Ready-to-Wear Collections

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.
