Thinking Baroque

Interview Germany (October 2012)

Baroque is the art period of the moment. (A couple of seasons ago, it was all about Art Deco.) We love its audacity, its opulence and, most importantly, Baroque and jewellery go together like milk and cookies.

The fashion crowd in Milan has fully embraced this lavish look, as captured by Tommy Ton -- all the colours, florals and gold!

Valentino F/W 2012

Valentino's current collection plays on the softer, more romantic side of the trend with delicate pinks, mixed with glistening gold.

Miu Miu F/W 2012

Miu Miu and its printed suits sure look like antique upholstery, accented by gold accessories.

Fashion eccentric Anna Dello Russo knows how to make a fashion week entrance and she's chosen Dolce & Gabbana's dazzling collection to do so.

Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2012

We love all the gold leafy embroidery, large drop earrings, and jewelled headpieces we wrote about a couple of weeks ago.

And the combination of gold and pearls is always a winning one (just look at this intricate little bag!), and it's precisely what we want to wear in the fall.

Be Jewelled

Chanel Pre-Fall 2012

Ornate is definitely a term we'll be hearing a lot this season. Fall 2012 is dazzling in beautiful brocade numbers and stunning jewels. Karl Lagerfeld kicked off the trend with his Pre-Fall 2012 Chanel collection titled Paris-Bombay, and we were completely seduced by the jewelled headpieces.  

Miroslava Duma wearing Chanel

So was bona fide street style star, Miroslava Duma, who was photographed wearing a Chanel headpiece.

Enter Erickson Beamon and their equally impressive number, with a gold chain to be worn down the middle hair part, similar to Miroslava Duma.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012

Dolce & Gabbana also showed jewelled headpieces some love. Their collection, inspired by Sicilian Baroque, was perhaps the most strikingly ornamental collection this season. 


Dauphines of New York Pearl and Glass Headpiece (pre-order)

Luckily for us, Dauphines of New York designed some gorgeous pieces exclusively for Sophie's Closet. 'Amber', featuring pearls and amber has a lovely Eastern feel to it, and the pearl and glass one is so amazingly decadent, princess-worthy.

Dannijo "Jahzara" (pre-order)

And, that's not all! We also have a jewelled stunner called "Jahzara" from Dannijo arriving any day now. Here's a sneak peek -- very Indian-inspired! -- worn by their lovely studio intern. (Thanks for the pic, Dannijo! We can't wait to receive it.)
