Take a peek out the window with me and see if you can guess my lunch spot on the day I arrived in the Big Apple. It was a very quick weekend trip with lots to do and lots to see.

IMG_5700.JPG

Day 1  found me dashing here and there to select new gemstones and supplies. These sparkling gems will be part of the Spring 2018 collection now beginning production. 

IMG_5710.JPG

Day 2 included a visit to SOLA Showroom in Chelsea. SOLA is my NY sales representative. They display and sell Myrna Halpern Jewelry to the buyers representing retail stores from all over the country and beyond.

IMG_5708.JPG

Perfect timing.... I was available for a quick selfie with the buyers from Boutique To  Go meeting with my sales rep Janet.

IMG_5722.JPG

Day 3 included a trip to the trade show Coterie to see Spring 2018 fashions. This helped to crystallize my own production plans for my next collection. As you can see, the clothes were frothy and feminine as evidenced by this snapshot from Margaret O'Leary.

I especially liked Tonet, an Italian collection new to the US market. They were exhibiting their spring's finest and it really took my eye. I loved the easy tailoring with feminine touches. It was a quick trip...... about 50 or so hours from touch down to take off again, but I did come back a little wiser than when I left!

Fall Fashion Cues

Fall is just around the corner. When the temperatures begin to drop, will you be fashion ready? 

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.47.42 PM.png

This photo from www.matchesfashion.com tells a great deal about what's trending. Notice the minimalist neutrals with maximalist styling. Ruffles rule this season. White is right for fall.....notice the Prada handbag. Linear earrings are key... they may or may not be matching pairs. And finally, pair neutrals with metallics. Be sure to note the pointed toe kitten heeled shoes.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.34.06 PM.png

Our friends at FORWARD by Elyse Walker post daily photos of trends from Southern California. Here they tout the importance of velvet, not only in handbags like this one from YSL, but also pant suits which are having a major moment for fall.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.33.34 PM.png

Be sure to visit Elyse Walker's website, www.FWRD.com to see the latest in the Nouveau Bohemian trend as shown here. Major sculptural earrings are trending as are dark florals and unique styles of black leather pieces to layer.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.46.27 PM.png

I recommend subscribing to www.thezoereport.com by Rachel Zoe for fashion info. Did you know that crochet is having a significant rebirth? Here we see it as embellishment for handbags, but it has again become popular for sweaters. Yes, just like the ones of the 60's and 70's. At Myrna Halpern Jewelry we just introduced hand crocheted, one of a kind short necklaces and they have enjoyed instant success.

Screen Shot 2017-08-22 at 1.41.33 PM.png

Who but Rachel Zoe would have thought to show the elevated graphic T shirt soaring to new heights? Here it is on Reese Weatherspoon as an example of how to update any old graphic tee with the addition of stilettos and a top handled handbag. Of course those cats eyed sunnies definitely add some extra zest to this ensemble.

One of our biggest sellers for fall are our long necklaces featuring organic materials like our Zane necklaces pictured above, Made from slices of water buffalo horn that are chain linked, they are long enough to double and they add the perfect finish to the current laid back luxe look for fall.

Resort 2018 Style Forecasting

So it's midyear 2017 in the Pacific Northwest and the waters are just beginning to warm and the sunsets are getting more gorgeous every day. My mission this summer is to think ahead to next year to plan my spring collection for 2018! I always begin with the latest runway shows and study the trend predictions. This year I consulted www.vogue.com.

.

The first trend that was mentioned is that white is right as reflected by British designer Stella Mc Cartney in her Resort 2018 collection. Love her tailored yet feminine take on white.

And, believe it or not, that old school hue, lime green, has reemerged from the 1970's and is reappearing in its most neon form. Here Delpozo mixes it with pastels.

Moving on to patterns, looks like Gucci covers all bases with lots and lots of floral print, not the dark florals that have been so popular, but brightly colored florals like only Gucci would think of.

Not only florals were brightly hued, but stripes in every shape and form were more popular than ever. Missoni knows how to tell that story beautifully.

valentino.jpg

We've all heard of athleisure, a very popular look for the past several years. Well, it has been elevated and is now called glamleisure. Valentino has taken the track suit to astounding new levels.

And what about all you boho chic global gypsies out there? Christian Dior has news for you. You are going to take your cues from those canyon girls of the desert Southwest and next year you are going to be known as a chic cowgirl.

 

The final trend mentioned by Vogue is that of the Goddess Figure. Beautiful, flowy gowns for evening were everywhere on the runways. Here Chanel pairs their gown with gladiator sandals to add power to their goddess image.

So where do I begin? I do have some ideas.... not sure how they will work for the powerful goddess figure or the glamleisurist, but if you are a Buddhist chic cowgirl I think I have something for you!

Fashion Notes From London

Ever since the days of Twiggy and Mary Quaint, London has been a major player in the fashion scene. Since the 60's with its Mod fashions, London has led the way and today is no different. A retrospective of London fashion is chronicled at the Victoria and Albert Museum in Knightsbridge

carnaby.jpg

A recent trip to London brought me to Carnaby St. the home of 60's psychedelic prints and those kitschy white leather boots. 

This colorful retro look from the 60's has regained its popularity. In fact, colorful dresses were all the rage in the most fashionable boutiques in the area of Bond Street, London's most fashionable address.

At Temperley London on Bruton St. color abounded. One of my favorites was this interesting combination of peach. pink and purple mixed with neutrals, black and white.

Another British fashion house, Roksanda, known for its interesting color blocking has a gorgeous boutique closeby on Mount Street. As you can see, clashing colors make for an interesting mix.

Not only colors were clashing, but so were prints. Patchwork style prints were everywhere and no one pulled it off in a more sophisticated way than the Spanish luxury brand Loewe. Their Paula's Ibiza collection for Summer 2017 was inspired by the iconic designs and prints that were part of the fun, art and glamour of the Ibizan way of life back in the 80's. This photo was taken at the Loewe boutique on Mount St.

With all the retro Bohemian vibes out there in the world of fashion, one could only conclude that those iconic 60's love beads must follow. British jewelry designer Niquesa has elevated those love beads to a new level with her multicolored six foot long beaded strand of luxury gemstones. Sure seems like the logical conclusion!

One of a Kind

Let's face it. We are all individuals and we like it that way. Therein lies the basis for our new online Lexie Collection of One of a Kind Jewelry. 

FullSizeRender 47.jpg

We all enjoy the unique pleasures of owning something that no one else has. In this case hand woven beaded cuffs made of water buffalo horn.

Owning a unique agate necklace is another way to enjoy one of a kind. Each stone has its own story to tell regarding its shape and coloration.

Maybe the unusual color combination of this hand beaded tassel would appeal to your sensibility. 

This hand antiqued brass cuff might be the perfect fit for you... you can literally open and close it to fit your wrist size.

Your own sense of style will dictate the one of a kind jewelry that you choose. All of these pieces and alot more are featured on our website under the Lexie Collection. Best of all, you will be shopping for a cause as a portion of the proceeds goes to Pancreatic Cancer Research...a WIN Win to be sure.

Boho Chic for Spring 2017

The newest "must have" for warmer weather is the boho chic embroidered cotton dress. This trending look is perfect for a laid back dinner at the beach or a fun day of shopping with your BFF.

dodo.jpg

This fabulous frock by Dodo Bar Or is the perfect answer for an update to your summer wardrobe. The pom poms and tassels add an extra punch of boho luxe.

How about a new twist on the little black dress? This mini dress by Figue is a laid back version of the LBD. Pink embroidery adds interest and a cool, casual edge.

March 11 is the designer for this richly embroidered cotton dress. Wear with sexy sandals for warm weather and add leggings in the fall.

Looking for something cool and comfortable? Consider this cool blue mini dress with multiple tassels by Talitha.

Ulla Johnson adds a sophisticated edge to her casual chic dress. Her unique take on embroidery uses multiple colors along the outside edge of the skirt and sleeve.

Wondering about accessories for your new embroidered dress? Keep it simple! This fabulous tan leather sandal by Piccolino is so versatile and adds the perfect finishing touch.

And finally, keep the jewelry at a minimum..... just a great pair of earrings to keep that hippie chic vibe going! You can find our Belle earrings right here on the website.

Have a simple, chic, laid back spring!

New Year, New Collections

Sometimes "life" gets in the way of my very best intentions. I cannot believe that it has been exactly six months to the day since my last blog post, but I'm finally back with new stories to share. It's a brand new year with gorgeous new jewelry in our NYC showroom that we just posted on our website.

We have added some interesting new materials for spring/summer 2017. The Emma bracelets pictured above feature yellow tree resin called copal, painted and etched horn, picture jasper, antler slices, and brown turquoise!

Color schemes for my new jewelry collections are influenced by my love of fashion and Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten is clearly a master when it comes to color. 

As you know, hand woven beading is a trademark of Myrna Halpern Jewelry. This season we are introducing the Franz necklaces which epitomize the Bohemian vibe we so love We've added fringe and more carved and painted horn beads to the mix.

Speaking of a Bohemian vibe, no one does it better than Ulla Johnson whose amazing orange silk jumpsuit would be the perfect frock to wear with every single piece of my new jewelry.

You would have to be living under a rock to miss the fact that tassels still reign supreme in the fashion world. They are everywhere! We encircle ours with woven beads, of course!

I cannot end this blog without a nod to the amazing Clare Waight Keller, creative director for Chloe. As you can see, her aesthetic pairs beautifully with my new collection.

Inspiration from My Northwest Adventure

Designers get their inspiration at the oddest moments and from the most unusual places. That is one reason I spend my summers at the tip of the Olympic Peninsula.

I am fascinated by the quirky, old timey spirit of Port Townsend, Washington. This former Victorian seaport is situated between the Olympics and the Cascades along the waters of Puget Sound where it opens into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. 

The art is funky and the livin' is easy. This relaxed atmosphere is a great catalyst for creative thought.

Cloud formations translate into a new color story.

Even the milk and honey color combination of these chicken feathers could elicit a new color scheme for my next collection!

blue.jpg

And let's not forget that grungy, carefree spirit of the Northwest....trying to capture that in a new collection is a designer's dream!

Stay tuned as the Northwest Adventure unfolds.

My Summer Studio

Super steamy summerlike days remind me that it's time to leave my usual environs in the South, and head to the Pacific Northwest with its beautiful views, mild weather, and cool breezes.

Since 2006 I have spent my summers in Port Townsend, Washington, a Victorian seaport and artist community situated at the tip of the Olympic Peninsula. At my summer studio on a bluff overlooking Port Townsend Bay I can view both the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. In the distance is the mouth of Puget Sound where it opens to the Strait of Juan de Fuca, just below the San Juan Islands. This is the perfect environment to sketch, plan and create.

The picturesque backyard is just right for everything from photo shoots, to relaxing, to planning my next collection. I call this funky gate my gateway to heaven! It leads to a secret garden on the bluff overlooking water, mountains and blue skies.

"And the livin' is easy" there. My one summer "must have" in clothing is this poncho by Apiece Apart, perfect for those chilly evenings when the winds come in across the water. 

If asked about my "go to" summer necklace, I would have great difficulty deciding, but our ever popular Cordell tassel necklace would certainly be high on the list. Love its simple, chic vibe.

The Feminine Side of Fashion

Florals, lace, sheer fabrics and the occasional ruffle were all over the spring/summer runway shows. The feminine side of fashion is clearly in focus.

Valentines Day Fashion Sense

lexi_2002.jpg

It's Valentine's Day weekend and love is in the air. Romantic fashion looks abound for spring 2016. Take a look.

Glamour Magazine touts this outfit as "what to wear" for Valentine's Day. Notice the nod to the popular lingerie look as this revealing camisole is paired with a tailored suit and oxfords.

Calvin Klein's spring runways were teaming with this same lingerie look. Slip dresses were everywhere.

Calvin Klein's spring runways were teaming with this same lingerie look. Slip dresses were everywhere.

If you find the slip dress too revealing, consider a coverup, and, yes, team it all with your favorite dark denim.

The lingerie look can be modified in many ways. This flowing top by Pas de Calais is a great variation.

And even a luxurious coat is shown with the ever present slip dress.  

And even a luxurious coat is shown with the ever present slip dress.

 

Channel your inner "girlyness." Delicate jewelry looks amazing with the romantic lingerie look. That is why we recently introduced a series of delicate necklaces as part of our Lexie Collection for spring. This Tancie necklace features a diminutive druzy pendant, and adds some sensuality to a low cut neckline.

Do you love pearls? Baby freshwater pearls are another romantic look, and our Terrance necklace is classic enough to be worn other ways.... try it inside the neck of a button up shirt or with a tissue thin cashmere sweater.

Love to layer? The romantic lingerie look calls for elegant simplicity, and the Dana necklace pictured above is the perfect complement to other delicate necklaces worn in varying lengths.

New York Fashion Scene

My recent trip to NYC turned out to be a fashion bonanza. Little did I know that Bergdorf Goodman had recently refurbished their ground level introducing a mind blowing jewelry department that was a sight to behold.

There were many amazing features, but my favorite touch were the 1920's inspired mirrored showcases...... stunning!

And the jewelry was over the top with selections from top designers worldwide. One of my favorites was this piece from Armenta.

Moving further up 5th Ave., I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their Anna Winter  Costume Center is currently featuring a retrospective on Jacqueline de Ribes pictured here amongst the gowns she both purchased and designed over the years.

This fabulous gown from the 70's was embellished with jewelry that would be so appropriate today, chokers and long layers.

And last, but not least, the reason for my trip...Myrna Halpern Jewelry. This is a glimpse of a part of my Spring Collection available to the trade at Sola Showroom in Gramercy Park. For more information visit www.myrnahalpern.com.

A Look Back at 2015

In the world of jewelry 2015 must be remembered as the year of the tassel. Suede, chain, leather, beaded, bejeweled. feather, and even horsehair were the materials of choice. Our Jeremiah necklace (above) sports a suede tassel embellished with an earthy slice of a deer antler and a bronzite teardrop. 

Our very best selling necklace this year was the Cordelle tassel necklace fashioned with antique silver chains captured in a cap of tiny pearls. Simple and stunning really fits the bill.

_52F0609.jpg

My personal favorite is the Tamara necklace, a strand of recycled glass with a suede tassel sporting our hand woven beading. Picture this on a denim or plaid shirt for that "lumber sexual" look!

Can you dress up a tassel necklace? You betcha. Our Maris necklace was selected by Rachael Ray's stylist for Rachael to wear on her September 29 show. So glad she didn't dip it in the gravy!

You really have to squint to find the Maris necklace on Rachael's flowered top, but trust me, it's there!

And what about the tassel necklaces of the future? We predict the trend will continue, and here is a sneak peak of our Zoe necklace for 2016 made from natural Greek leather, white sponge coral and antique silver chain.

NY Fashion Week, then London and Milan

Fall has just arrived, yet the global fashionistas have been on a whirlwind tour of consecutive fashion weeks where the Spring 2016 collections have been presented.

There were many recurring themes, but one of particular note was a silvery, shimmery look achieved here by Prada through the use of translucent fabrics.

Ports 1961 used silvery, shimmery metallic flowers for spring. Sure hope she doesn't spill her chocolate drink on that gorgeous outfit.

Brunello Cucinelli went full force with the shimmery look with this metallic bomber jacket.

And an even more blatant silver metallic look was set forth by Moschino.

Max Mara captured the trend through the use of shimmery fringe in silver mixed with one of Pantone's color predictions for spring 2016 called "iced coffee."

Now that you have a sneak peek of spring clothing, here is a sneak peak from our Spring 2016 collection. Of course, we too have a beautiful shimmery, silvery look in the form of platinum pearls mixed with rough cut aquamarine and a touch of our signature woven beading. Enjoy your fall, but you can still dream about next spring!

STYLE EDITOR...... FALL 2015 TRENDS

This fall you may count on many new trends, but almost every fashion magazine, blog and style editor refers to these four fashion trends. Take a look and see which best suits you.

If you love black, black, and more black, you will love the VICTORIAN GOTHIC. Don't hesitate to pop your LBD with shots of white. Conversely, don't hesitate to add black accents to your white fall garments. Yes, white is right for Fall 2015.

Our Jeremiah necklace in black and white is just the answer to VICTORIAN GOTHIC. We love how the quirky antler slice adds to the mix.

MENSWEAR is another significant trend. This model rocks menswear in a funky way hiding her skinny jeans under her woolen skirt. Note the menswear striped shirt and the unexpected red stilettos. You love MENSWEAR, but you're not that funky? Then try this look without the addition of the skirt.

The Joshua necklace on red leather is so perfect for the MENSWEAR look. The length of this necklace is adjustable. So you decide if you prefer to wear it shortened inside your pinstripe shirt, or longer under the collar.

Maybe you are a MINIMALIST. Do you like to wear neutrals and keep your color scheme within the same tones? This may be your ticket. Remember you can be a MINIMALIST and still wear fur and funky shoes! Brunello Cucinelli's designs shown here are always within the MINIMALIST spectrum.

Of course, I could not forget that folkloric, retro '70's look for fall called BOHO CHIC. Are you BOHO? If you have ever shopped in a vintage store, are not afraid to wear prints, and you love to combine patterns and textures, then you may be a BOHO girl! If you are, you better have a floppy hat, big sunglasses and a cognac leather handbag.
