Fenton X Alexandre Plokhov, The Sequel-------
Fenton jewelry designer Dana Lorenz is still going with her “more is more” approach, but for Spring she lightened up her look with layers of pastels, pearls, and geometrics baubles inspired by Miami Art Deco. Some of the dyed agate, jade, and moonstone statement necklaces—a few of them trimmed with feathers—are almost sizable enough to be a chestplate (left), but it’s the studded collar that caught our eyes. It had that dark, almost gothic edge of some of her previous collections.
Speaking of past seasons, Lorenz has once again joined forces with Alexandre Plokhov. (The two collaborated before she launched Fenton.) Tomorrow, Plokhov makes his return to New York with his debut womenswear collection after spending time working for Versace.
“He wanted the jewelry to be really graphic and strong but almost seamless with the clothing,” Lorenz tells Style.com of the oversized cuffs she created, in basic black and white as well as “shocking” colors. “We used rough-cut diamonds as inspiration—the result is a multifaceted, enormous cuff; they are huge!”
