Discovery #1: Delfina Delettrez

This week saw me starting my first week working at Vogue, as part of the team coordinating this year’s Fashion’s Night Out which is taking place in Manchester on October 10th. After just 1 week working there, I have already found many exciting new designers to delve into, the first of these being Delfina Delettrez.

Delfina Delettrez, owner of her eponymous jewellery label, harks from the Fendi family and so has fashion in her blood. Her jewellery is eclectic; it ranges from delicate, dainty chains with tiny charms, to bejewelled necklaces, skeleton hand bracelets and chunky metal bangles. There’s something for every taste, so long as you’re not averse to colour and life in your adornments. She is a favourite of fellow accessories designer Charlotte Olympia, amongst others. The best piece? The small hoops decorated with gems and pearls. A perfect fusion of femininity and androgyny.

Butler & Wilson

Costume jewellery – it’s big, it’s bold and it’s brilliant. There’s nowhere quite like Butler & Wilson where you can find big, sparkling, over-the-top jewels and wacky, ever so slightly creepy jewellery. Not for the faint hearted, the majority of their pieces are eye-catching but luckily not eye-wateringly expensive. A win win situation. Such jewellery can be worn with anything but its real strength lies in taking a plain outfit from the everyday to a much higher level. Below are my favourite pieces at the moment.
