In case you missed it, pink is having a major moment this year. We fell in love with the bold pops of fuchsia at Alexander Wang, Thakoon, and dozens more Fall ’14 shows, and off the runway, we lost track of how many girls sported pastel pink coats and rosy accessories. In our book, pink looks pretty all year round. This spring, we’ll be wearing the hue head-to-toe for a sweet-meets-sophisticated look—e.g., a bubblegum jumpsuit with patent kitten heels—or in small doses with a flushed lip or translucent sunnies.

California native Michelle Campbell Mason was an actress and model in a previous life—her first break was on CSI, as a hooker with good intentions who meets a gruesome fate. (“My parents loved that one,” she laughed.)
Things slowed down at one point, Mason said, and she started to lose it. But after inheriting a bunch of jewelry from her grandmother, she picked up a pencil and began to sketch. “They were a little too antique to wear, so I wanted to create something that would complement them, something a little more clean and to the point,” she explains.
Three years on, Campbell’s floating rings and major cuffs have made waves everywhere from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus to Shopbop.com. This fall, Campbell is taking her first step into fine jewelry with a collection that builds on her signature floaty, classic modernism. Her massive honeycomb cuff was the inspiration for a number of new styles, while a darker-than-usual theme in black and white diamonds on white gold conveys an ongoing fascination with architecture, particularly what she finds in her new home base, New York. “This is meant to play off the contemporary [pieces],” she noted. “We all wear fine jewelry—just not by itself. It’s really clean, easy to pile on and layer,” she explained. And that, in a nutshell, is how crime TV’s loss became fashion’s gain.
Label: Wilfredo Rosado
Need to Know: After years of working with Giorgio Armani, Wilfredo Rosado realized his dream was to launch his own fine jewelry collection. And in 2011, he did just that. Top international retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford quickly snatched up his unique pieces. His cameos were an instant success, Gwyneth Paltrow wore his pink feather and diamond earrings to the 2011 Grammys, and ever since debuting his first collection, editors and buyers alike have championed his extravagant, eccentric take on diamonds.
When asked about his Fall ’13 collection, Rosado told Style.com that he has always been a fan of the Smoke series of burned furniture by the Dutch designer Maarten Baas. He’s fascinated by the idea of creating high-luxury pieces and treating them as common, non-precious objects. You can’t get much more precious than 18-karat gold set with sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds. But for Fall, Rosado inlaid his decadent wares with burned wood. He tells us they’re meant to be worn as everyday accessories.
He Says: “Should I call this collection ‘HOT’? I just want women—or men, for that matter—to look and feel cool wearing it, without feeling like they’re wearing the family jewels!”
