For their first ever collection with an outside jewelry designer, Banana Republic has teamed up with Vietnam-born designer Chan Luu to create a limited edition collection of hip, wrap-around bracelets. The 17-piece collection will feature 4 different styles of the wrap-arounds which combine custom-dyed leather or thread with gold, silver or semi-precious stone inlays. Priced from $95 to $225, the bracelets are a bit pricey, but it’s definitely a piece you can wear with anything (I have the light brown with silver stones version from his current collection and I wear it all the time). The hippie-chic pieces are now available at their accessories-only concept store in San Francisco – but don’t worry, you’ll have a chance to snag your own bracelet (or two) when the collection rolls out to BR stores nationwide and online on August 10.
Model Erin Heatherton heads to Barcelona for a Spanish-inspired editorial for the May issue of Elle France. Captured by the lens of Derek Kattela, Heatherton poses in floaty silks, mixed prints and some outstanding statement jewelry pieces (check out that multi-strand iridescent necklace!). This editorial features not only the incredible styling by Elissa Cannelle Castelbou, but also the stunning architecture of the Spanish city.
