Another day, another designer departure. The house of Azzaro announced today that its longtime creative director, Vanessa Seward (left), will no longer be helming the label. Seward has been with Azzaro since 2002, when designer and founder Loris Azzaro named her his first assistant; following his death in 2003, Seward took on the role of creative director. In recent days, Azzaro has gained an editorial and celebrity foothold, showing its collection in its salon in Paris and scoring red-carpet coups like Natalie Portman, who wore a bejeweled, strapless Azzaro frock to collect her Screen Actors Guild Award for Black Swan this year. Seward’s successor will be announced soon.
What: The secretly very excellent selection of costume jewelry at Urban Outfitters, including this metal mesh bow necklace, which Azzaro designer Vanessa Seward picked up on her last trip to the States.
Why: “I fell in love with the necklace,” says Seward. “It’s very Azzaro—discreet and chic at the same time. Whenever I’m in the States, I always shop at Urban Outfitters. My team are all big fans too.”
Where: $28, available at an Urban Outfitters near you or urbanoutfitters.com.
