Blasblog: Birds Of A (Jeweled) Feather

-------

Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman told me last night that she’s always had a thing for sparkles and feathers—and indeed, a brief look back at her red-carpet-monopolizing label proves that she’s not kidding. Last night in Soho, she took the sparkle and feather fetish to new heights, debuting a new, avian-inspired jewelry collection with the London-based label Garrard. On display on a mannequin made of marabou feathers was a bird necklace that wrapped around the neck: a head of precious stones on one side of the clavicle, and a wispy tail of diamonds on the other. “That was the first thing I thought of, and then I wanted to have birds flying off the hands and flying off the knuckles, and to see what else we could do with the motif,” the sometime actress explained. Cue rings with miniature birds and winglike earrings made of sapphires. A savvy businesswoman—maybe she learned something from hubby Harvey Weinstein?—Chapman also created some rings at a lower price point, even a giant cocktail ring with a pavé diamond wing that covered a whole hand of knuckles, which she managed to keep under $2,000. There to celebrate, along with Mischa Barton, Helena Christensen, and Garrard’s new creative director, Stephen Webster, was stylist Robert Verdi, who complained that Chapman was officially too glamorous—first, a successful clothing line, and now a jewelry line? “And look at her—I just want to kick her and give her a few bruises,” he teased. “But she would probably just cover them in diamonds and make it a trend.”

    Going by Marchesa’s glamor standards it doesn’t take a genius to imagine what the brand’s jewellery line will be like! Could have included photos of couple of pieces from the collection though ;-)
