SPRING TEXTURES... from runways to Sophie’s Closet

Spring/Summer 2010 runways were bursting with beautiful prints and textures.


On the runway...

Diane Von Fursterberg, Proenza Schouler, Alexander McQueen, L.A.M.B

Animal prints dominated the summer runways with an updated take on classic leopards and snakeskins. Whether in the form of a beautiful summer dress or a gorgeous, eye-catching accessory, bright and powerful animal prints are a sure way to catch attention on a hot summer day.

In Sophie's Closet...

Rachel Leigh ‘Olivia’ Snakeskin Bracelets (AED 350)

Rachel Leigh’s snakeskin bracelets are sure to make a similar statement. The classic snakeskin print comes updated in bright colours, and, combined with an adorable bow, are every trendsetters dream. It’s no surprise TV’s leading fashionista Blair Waldorf is a huge fan.

Vita Fede Large Original Chain Snakeskin Bracelets (AED 595)

Vita Fede’s signature ‘Original Chain’ bracelets are also available now with snakeskin. The combination of animal print and luxurious 24 K plated gold handmade chain is downright irresistible.

Vita Fede Snakeskin Bangles (AED 575)

Just as covetable are Vita Fede’s snakeskin bangles. They can be worn alone but are even better when layered for that extra little bit of glamour.


On the runway...

Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Nina Ricci, Chanel

Nothing says romance like a little bit of lace. Once again, lace was prominent all over spring runways with John Galliano almost dedicating his entire Christian Dior collection to it. In his debut collection for Nina Ricci, Peter Copping created jaw-droppingly beautiful lace shoes. And Karl Lagerfeld offered up lace in combination with country romance.

TB Lace and Swarovski Headband (AED 290)

Susan Daniels Black Lace with Stone Flower Headband (AED 350)

Although a head-to-toe lace ensemble can be a little daunting, accessories area perfect way to introduce a trend into one’s wardrobe. Lace headbands by TB and Susan Daniels would look as great with a little black as they would with a causal day ensemble of blouse and jeans.

Joomi Lim Crystal Gold Roses
(AED 560 exclusively at Sophie’s Closet)

Translating the intricacy of lace into gold, rose earrings by Joomi Lim are a great option to add a little lace-like texture through jewelry.


On the runway...

Burberry, Burberry shoes, Carolina Herrera, Rodarte

Adding a three-dimensional texture to fabric, knotting and braiding appeared most prominently in Burberry’s Spring/Summer collection. Coats, dresses, bags and even shoes were all treated to a little bit of a twist.

Rachel Leigh Crystal Braided Bracelet (AED 580)

Knotting and braiding are classic techniques when it comes to jewelry. Rachel Leigh’s crystal braided bracelet combines a braided snake chain, fine chain, and crystal strands, and makes a true statement piece.

Another stand-out is CC Skye’s multi chain cuff with a combination of slim and thick 24k gold-plated rope chain.

Jennifer Behr Sailor’s Knot Gold (AED 1100)

A sure way to be noticed is with Jennifer Behr’s gold knot headband, worn by Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. A classic sailor’s knot, this hair accessory is a must whether relaxing seaside or strolling around town.

Vita Fede Coming to Sophie's Closet

Layers and layers of bracelets are a staple in jewelry trends this year: the more the better. Whether you are pairing a few leather bracelets or bangles, the key is that you need lots and lots of volume. We’ve spotted Vita Fede bracelets all over the red carpet lately. In fact, they were mentioned at the 2010 Academy Awards by E! News host Giuliana this week. Celebs like Miley Cyrus, Leighton Meester, Lo Bosworth, Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Ashley Tisdale and Eva Longoria Parker are all huge fans of the bracelets, cuffs and bangles.

If you are a Gossip Girl fan, you might have noticed the Vita bracelets Blair Waldorf wore in the second and third season. The brown leather band with six brown and clear crystals were to die for!

Ready to rock the layered look? The key to wearing lots of bracelets is looking like you haven’t put any effort into it. Choosing a few bracelets within the same brand and style will work best. Our favorite layering Vita picks are: Como and Combina bracelets. We also love the Snake bangles and Grido bracelet, perfect for work or an evening out.
