New York fashion week officially kicks off in a week and a half, and in preparation, we’ve been running around the city sneak previewing several of the new Fall ’13 collections. At a recent studio visit with up-and-comer Sally LaPointe , the designer divulged that she’ll be showing jewelry—a collaboration with Meredith Kahn of Made Her Think—on the runway for the first time. Stylist Natasha Royt introduced the two designers, who used a gold bracelet that originally belonged to LaPointe’s boyfriend’s mother as a starting point. Kahn soldered together seven rows of chain links, all of which drape loosely around the wrist and are connected with a matching chain spine. While it was inspired by the 1994 Depeche Mode song “In Your Room,” LaPointe’s new lineup has a slight eighties vibe. And her collaborative bracelets are a fitting complement. The designer is also working with Alejandro Ingelmo on runway shoes for the third consecutive season. Ingelmo created booties with cutout sides and an architectural metallic heel that, like the bracelets (which will potentially be produced later), provides a “flash of gold.” Here, an exclusive look at Sally LaPointe’s gilded Fall accessories.
Sally LaPointe’s Fall ’13 show will take place February 8, at 11:00 a.m., at Pier 57 in New York.
