On Our Radar: Shourouk

-------

Part Maharajah, part sportif—not the likeliest mash-up of influences. But credit is due to the Paris-based jewelry designer Shourouk Rhaiem, who has somehow blended the two into a group of covetable, crystal-studded pieces for her latest eponymous collection. Rhaiem wasn’t always into baubles. She cut her teeth in fabric development at some of Europe’s best labels, including Chloé, Cavalli, and Galliano. Jean Paul Gaultier commissioned the designer to create jewels for his Fall ’09 Couture extravaganza, and you can see why. These pieces don’t just state, they roar—case in point, her crystal-covered lion’s-head bib necklace. Rowr.

For her latest collection, Rhaiem borrowed from the courts of Indian monarchs, right down to the way the pieces are meant to be worn—certain earrings, for example, include dangling chains meant to loop over the ear. But the best sellers so far have been those pieces that bring the royalty down to the level of the hoi polloi. Shorouk’s Swarovski crystal clusters are threaded on friendship bracelet strings and summer camp-style lanyards. They’ll hit Maryam Nassir Zadeh later this summer.

Postcard From Hong Kong: 48 Hours With Rare Vintage’s Juliana Cairone

-------


Rare Vintage owner Juliana Cairone (pictured) recently jetted off to Hong Kong to curate an exhibition for Lane Crawford’s flagship. Below, she reports on her first visit to the city, the best head massage worldwide, and the pains of wearing a cool few million on your neck.

48 hours in Hong Kong, 32 hours on the plane. But business class on Cathay Pacific eases that pain and gives me a good chance to catch up on films, like The Informant! with Matt Damon (loved his Michael Moore-sounding voiceover) and An Education, which is brilliant! So nice to see a film where the female lead is smart, funny, and engaging. There are too few smart roles for women in Hollywood. And now Carey Mulligan is a multi-nominee!

I wake up in the morning at the “old” Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and I rush for a shampoo and blow-dry at the salon. I could have stayed there all day! It is the best head massage I have ever had, and between that and the jet-lag, I am so relaxed I can’t think how I’m supposed to focus on my interviews at Lane Crawford for The New Vintage exhibit I am curating at their flagship store. But when I arrive, I am really happy to see couture pieces from Rare Vintage mixed with jewelry from Vera Wang, Erickson Beamon, Miriam Haskell, and a new favorite, Shourouk. It made the couture pieces from the 1950′s through the 1990′s look edgy and modern, which is exactly my philosophy on how vintage should be worn.

And what do I learn today at Lane Crawford? That I could never be a celebrity. My lips actually quiver by the end of the day after so many interviews with the Hong Kong press and posing for photographers. I have a newfound respect for and awe of actors on press junkets.
