Burberry Does Jewelry For Spring!
They may be best known for their liberal use of plaid on bags, coats and rainboots, but British design house Burberry has undergone a transformation for their Spring/Summer 2008 collection that leaves the pattern almost totally out-of-site. In its place, trendy hardware including metal studs, multi chains and Celtic studs adorns everything from bags to shoes. And even though we can’t all afford to get our hands on that infamous Warrior bag—which starts at $1695 and goes up to $22,000—we can get into the trend with Burberry’s first-ever full jewelry line. The metallic and perspex pieces are inspired by the “luxury warrior” theme that runs through the entire Spring/Summer collection. Necklaces, bracelets, cuffs, bangles and rings made from dark nickel and lacquered black and brass color palettes. Shapes are equally unusual, featuring clean strong hexagonal, square or round shapes. Prices range from $195 to $1595 and are available at Burberry stores and at burberry.com.
