Xix-im maya´s zero (dark) by Árbol de Viento

With all of the hustle and bustle of a London day, I love the idea of a beautiful symbol that measures time, to express thousands of millions of years and how significant each day is.

Designer Interview: Rosita Bonita

Posted in by

Rosita Bonita jewelry is fun, flirty, and bang on trend. Each leather piece features one of designer Ro’s gorgeous original illustrations, inspired in part by vintage imagery. “[Drawing] is the foundation of all design work anyway, I’m just taking it a bit more literally by wearing the drawings.” Rosita Bonita’s rose earrings and hummingbird necklaces fit right into fashion’s current floral frenzy, but these detailed pieces are also meant to be treasured. Pieces from her Amulet and Orchard collections make perfect presents, whether you want to pick up a gift for a friend or simply treat yourself! We had the chance to visit Ro in her London studio, where she showed us what inspires her, how she creates her unique jewelry, and what she’s working on next.

Love For Lamprini

Boticca staffers are modeling again! We were lucky enough to receive some samples from new designer Lamprini, and Margaux, Sophia, and Dimitra just had to try them on. They are all spot-on trend in Lamprini’s bright statement necklaces – Sophia’s nails even match the Kaleidoscope necklace!

Margaux wears the Coral Reef necklace, and Dimitra wears the Spring Blossom necklace. With so many choices, it is impossible to pick a favorite!

Nostalgia

Nostalgia by wrq.e.d

Wrq.e.d‘s scarves have such an other world charm about them.  The pen and biro illustrations are just magical; Moscow skylines sit alongside sleeping dogs and poetical references by writer Josef Brodsky.  Who knew all this could be found in a scarf!
