Accessory Alert: Folli Follie

 

Folli Follie’s strongest feature is undoubtedly its use of vivid colours. Established as a label proffering the finest selection of bespoke jewellery, Folli Follie has come a long way in the last few seasons. Most notably, the brand has actively redefined itself for the European market, returning to its Grecian roots for its SS13 lookbook shoot.

Shot in picturesque Santorini and story-boarded to the theme of the luxury in the Mediterranean, Folli Follie’s latest creations are aspirational pieces to be incorporated into everyday life.

We immediately zoned in on the most practical and lustworthy of Folli Follie pieces for SS13 – their oversized watches in a variety of mixed metals, especially those in tones of burnished and rose gold. Hitting stores in mid-April, time pieces retail at between €120-€270; a savvy price for such an investment piece.

Glamorous diamante features throughout the entire Spring Summer collection, but so too does jewellery with a more laidback styling. Folli Follie’s strength is in its use of colour which, when combined with precious metals, may not appeal to all. However, the fact that this label chooses to develop its own signature look at a time when statement jewellery is a requisite feature for any outfit is most exciting.

And for Spring Summer, Folli Follie’s range of enamelled and neon bangles, as well as their hoop earrings (which are back in style with a bang) are the lighter alternative.

As What She Wears has pointed out in recent posts, white is the colour to work over the coming months. Touches of white and gold are always classic, exemplified to perfection in the above pieces.

Availability: Folli Follie is stocked exclusively in Arnotts Henry Street and in Brown Thomas Cork. Shop Folli Follie online here.
