Amanda Wakely ft. Maria Francesca Pepe’s Jewelry for Spring 2010 RTW

I would describe Amanda Wakely‘s collection during London Fashion Week as “soft rock.” Her clothes looked cool and comfortable, with a focus on using warm colored jersey material and a draping effect to clothe the models strutting down the runway.  What caught my eye was the way jewelry designer Maria Francesca Pepe’s Serpentine necklaces was used, which added the “rock” element to the collection. Maria’s pieces were utilized very wisely, as the serpentine necklace is very versatile. It can be worn as a one, two, or three ringed choker, it can hang at chest level or below, or even be used as a belt.   I can definitely see myself wearing most of the outfits in this collection!

MariaFrancescaPepe's Les C Collection for Fall/Winter '09-'10

MariaFransescacollections2009_09

Displayed below is designer Maria Francesca Pepe’s Les C Collection that she describes as “A Collection of Jewellery, Womenswear, Bags and Shoes!”

Costume jewelry at its finest; I think this collection is super FIERCE! Exaggerated Simplicity is what I’ll call it =)

Below is an excerpt from the site:

MFP AW 09-10 ‘Les C’ draws inspiration from the 19th century fashionable French prostitutes. Adopting avant-garde proportions, the decorative aspects of the collection also explore a more feminine aesthetic.

Key items in the new MFP collection include her classic 70ies tubular pieces, which have developed through a variety of colours, dimensions and functions as the rest of MFP classic pieces, including the pointed rings and plaque necklaces.

Evening jewellery comprises of extravagant triangular or curly headpieces, shield like collars in three dimensions, and pleated brass lapels, which define MFP signature “wearable jewellery. Raw materials encompass sterling silver and multicoloured plated brass against a palette of pink gold, light bronzed gold and silver fading into a darker grey.”

For more details and pics click here for her catalog

Enjoy!
