Need one more reason to shop this season? How about the September 7 arrival at Barneys New York of Mo Clancy's Nomade Exquis fall collection, entitled Métaux Mélangés, of mostly one-of-a-kind vintage modernist, biomorphic, and brutalist jewelry? Created by unsung masters who were fascinated by nature's raw forms, the pieces date from the late 1950's through the late 1970's and range in price from $400 to $3,000. Clancy, a trend forecaster turned curator and purveyor of uniquities, says she relies on her gut when gathering her collections. Our instinct says these pieces won't be around for long.
