Roses, hearts, crosses, studs, crystals and pearls... When innocence meets self-confidence and delicacy faces toughness, we can only envisage something gorgeously unconventional. Check out the newest Maria Francesca Pepe fall/winter 2012 lookbook and enter into the magnificent world of cool and edgy yet chic and luxurious jewelry.
When body and mind are strongly connected, one can indeed make
wonders. The palpable proof is the newest Maria Francesca Pepe
lookbook for fall/winter 2012. Renowned London jewelry designer
brings once again an array of edgy and cool yet chic and sexy
stunners from rings, heart-shaped safepins, earrings and bold cuffs
to crucifix-adorned necklaces, chokers, lovely pendants and
headbands. The collection features showstopping pieces that
beautifully redefine the notion of luxury and glamor adding a
surprisingly stylish unconventionality.
In an interview with wonderMode, the designer said that, "I greatly value the presence of positive energy in my life. Having faith in your soul is what gives you inner strength and what makes you unique. I am also aware of bad influences and how important is to cure the spirit. Religious and mystic symbols carry these meanings and inner strengths: to remind us we have to protect our souls and accept our faith willingly despite hard times. Each symbol gives a message to the person who is wearing it, or to the person you give it to. This is why jewelry is the perfect gift."
All the high quality, handcrafted beauties seen in the latest
Maria Francesca Pepe fall/winter 2012 lookbook seem to exceed the
importance of all trends and seasons. Their uniqueness and
contemporary functionality makes them perfect additions to your
accessory drawer. Give a notice-me-now touch and extravagance to
your appearances choosing statement jewelry as the ones spotted in
the Maria Francesca collection. As the right necklace or ring can
totally transform an outfit, it's time you start having fun and
finish off your looks with some really fabulous pieces.
Speaking about the body’s relationship to jewelry, the designer says that, "Jewelry is something that when you wear you do not feel, despite the fact that it is made of metal. Considering the human body as a canvas to design from allows me to create pieces, which are perfectly ergonomic and comfortable to wear. Besides, I find it both funny and gorgeous to wear jewelry on unusual parts of your body, such as feet or ankles. Or having the possibility to change their functionality. For example, wearing an earring as a collar pin, or a bracelet as a choker."
