Instagram is the Bomb

If you are a visual person like me and you are not enjoying Instagram, you should be. From current events to fashion, it’s all there for you on a totally visual platform.

Just today I found a great new knitwear line from Spain called Babaa. I love their chunky knits and artisanal, handmade styles. When you are on Instagram look for @babaaknitwear.

Loving this kitchen from an Instagram post from Traditional Home. I was struck by the unusual choice of mixing modern chairs and a rustic table…. food for thought?

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 1.43.06 PM.png

On Instagram I follow lots of my favorite restaurants like Aqua Grille in NYC. I guess this photo is worth a thousand words. And their desserts are just as amazing.

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 1.44.18 PM.png

Another pastime of mine on Instagram is to follow along on the pages of my all time favorite hotels. This is the Hotel Eden in Rome. How’s that for a first impression?

This post is from @thinkroyln. I didn’t find them on Instagram. They are actually my “next door neighbors” at SOLA Showroom in NYC. They create totes, ponchos, scarves and hats for today’s lifestyle which they refer to as #lifeonthefly. And, yes, their goods are literally stopping traffic!

INSPIRATION ABOUNDS

As a jewelry designer I am always asked where I get my ideas. My usual answer is "everywhere."

 It all begins with the right climate, both literally and figuratively. In my case my inspiration abounds at my summer studio in the Pacific Northwest. The warm sunshine and cool breezes create a relaxing atmosphere and the natural beauty and rich history of this Victorian seaport makes it a haven for artists of all kinds.

Nature is a constant source of inspiration. The colors of a brilliant sunset can often spark an idea.

It's easy to see how this bracelet comes from the collection I named Autumn Sky.

I am often influenced by fashion, and interesting color combinations.

Couldn't you see wearing our fun new Jill earring with the Gucci jacket above!

Yes, a vintage chandelier could inspire a chandelier earring made with vintage components.

From this to that!?!?

 

 Interior design often flows along the same lines with fashion, and all shades of lavender are au courant.

Fall Jewelry Sneak Peek

It's not even the 4th of July and we are already delivering fall jewelry! Take a look at our latest and greatest.

IMG_7573.JPG

Introducing Moe, a new concept in our hand woven beading. Six triangles of beads join with Swarovski rhinestone chain to create this unique pinwheel design statement earring. 

IMG_7617.jpg

We also used this design as the centerpiece for the new Gail necklace by adding hand wrapped pyrite beads and a fun tassel.

IMG_8524.jpg

Looking to turn heads with some fun bracelets? Try one of the Diane bracelets wrapped in chain and cord and embellished with beads and fringe..Boholuxe to the max!

IMG_8451.jpg

Long simple strands to layer or double are very popular for fall and so are all things purple! From our Ultraviolet Collection we combined crazy purple agate with purple matte crystals and matte onyx for a super sophisticated feel.

IMG_8391.jpg

Repetitive matte gold flowers create the ultimately sophisticated statement earring.... lightweight and so very Fall 2018! Stay tuned... all Fall Jewelry will be on the website in July!

New from NYC

Always love to share with you the latest and greatest fashion news. I learned so much on my recent trip to NYC. Here's a quick review of what and who is HOT!

l and M.jpg

Here I am with Lisa Natt, owner of SOLA showroom, the accessories showroom who has represented Myrna Halpern Jewelry since 2014. Lisa knows so much about the accessories market, and I've learned a great deal from her.  What a great first stop.

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 12.47.46 PM.png

Both Lisa and I are fans of designer Ulla Johnson. Ulla is really hot right now and so are dresses. I visited Ulla's new shop on Bleeker St. in the village. Next time you're in NY, be sure to stop in. Her clothing is wonderful and she is now doing some fabulous handbags.... loved the ones in navy wicker! www.ullajohnson.com

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 12.44.54 PM.png

Every fashionista knows that Gucci is at the top of its game right now. This logo bag features some of the the most popular motifs currently used in fashion.... butterflies, bees and flowers. www.gucci.com

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 12.54.09 PM.png

Brunello Cucinelli epitomizes laid back luxury, another current trend. Known for mixing the unexpected, they pair a shiny metallic jacket with khakis and a white shirt. Be sure to note the backless loafers, another must have for the fashion elite. www.brunellocucinelli.com

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 12.56.02 PM.png

Marni, another Italian label, personifies casual chic, and this combo reflects today's "anything goes" fervor..... long over long, stripes with plaids, and color clashing. www.marni.com

The Gaucho Girl Collection for 2018

So who is this gaucho girl? We envisioned a hip, stylish woman with a casual lifestyle.

IMG_6983.PNG

Technically a Gaucho Girl is a South American horsewoman as show above, but really anyone can be a Gaucho Girl of sorts. It's all about style.

IMG_7082.jpg

Put on your denim shirt, some gaucho pants, your favorite jeans, or maybe a suede or leather item and you too can be a gaucho girl! Here we feature the Burton leather lariat with woven beading and a naturally shed elk burr. We call it laid back luxury.

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 11.46.49 AM.png

Another take on the Gaucho Girl look is the fabulous Preston Lariat made of Greek leather and chains with lots of fun charms made of silver and horn feathers.

IMG_7179.jpg

How do you dress up a Gaucho Girl? Easy, she wears her "go to" bracelets featuring Swarovski rhinestones wrapped in deerskin....of course!

IMG_7193.jpg

There are many earring options for the Gaucho Girl, but a no brainer is this silver filigree attached to a horn post and sporting a fun grouping of funky tassels. Visit our website to see the complete Gaucho Girl Collection for Spring/Summer 2018!

Our Signature Style

Another jewelry designer once shared an important concept with me. She advised me to be sure that my jewelry was identifiable. 

IMG_7078.jpg

So aside from our "Myrna" tags which definitely help brand our product, what else helps one to know that these necklaces are by Myrna Halpern? My answer would have to be our hand woven beading. Here it used above the horn pendant and as a cap for the suede tassel.

IMG_6642.jpg

There's no question here. Our new Darren cuff literally screams our brand name! While others use this beading technique, we uniquely use gemstones rather than glass or plastic.

IMG_6730.jpg

Our wrapped hoops for spring/summer 2018 (we named them Lilli) are a new spin on the hand woven beading technique.

NBN_2038.jpg

Went back in the archives to find this necklace from 2014 with another take on our signature beading.

2010.jpg

If you bought these a number of years ago, I bet you still wear them!

DSC_2248.jpg

Had to go all the way back to 2009 to find this photo. What a timeless example of our signature style!

Italian Inspiration

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year. Wanted to share my end of the year trip to Rome with all of you. As you can easily see, Italy is a great source of inspiration.

IMG_6849.jpg

The sheer beauty of the Roman landscape is breathtaking to behold.

 And the sunset on Christmas day was dazzling.

And the sunset on Christmas day was dazzling.

IMG_6863.JPG

The striking colors in the storefront of Missoni spoke volumes about Italian style.

IMG_6840.JPG

The bold jewelry styles in a shop window on Via Condotti further exemplified the artistry of the Italians.

IMG_6862.JPG

Another head turner was the eclectic style in the window at Brunello Cucinelli. Their penchant for combining so many gorgeous textures together is world renown.

IMG_6835.JPG

Gucci epitomizes the forefront of Italian style. A definite theme emerged there... butterflies, bugs and bees.

IMG_6836.JPG

Lessons learned from the Italians.....remember your "B's" Beauty, Boldness, Butterflies, Bugs and Bees.

Not Your Mother's Trunk Show!

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 4.03.49 PM.png

Actually trunk shows got their name from those old school suitcases and trunks. Designers would pack their merchandise inside and travel around showing their wares. Needless to say, those days are long gone.

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 4.02.58 PM.png

Today's "trunk shows" are really "in store events." It's a time to meet and mingle, and if you are lucky, you will actually get to meet the designer or some representative from the company who is being featured.

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 3.53.40 PM.png

There's usually a theme.... like "Come by for a workshop on Halloween decorating. While you're here be sure meet the creator of our new line of candles just in time for Halloween."

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 3.54.16 PM.png

Participants at the "in store events" often come away with some new found knowledge. We always like to learn something new and it often serves as one incentive to bring people in.

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 3.52.14 PM.png

A party atmosphere with refreshments can also serve as an incentive, and most of us have more fun and loosen up a bit when we are eating and drinking

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 4.02.16 PM.png

Finally, comradarie is the key ingredient to a successful event. Bringing a friend makes shopping more fun. No, it's not your mother's old school trunk shows any more. Let's face it, in order to get today's shoppers away from their online experiences you must offer them something that they cannot see, hear, feel, taste or smell sitting in from of their laptop!

New York, New York

FullSizeRender 106.jpg

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.

Screen Shot 2017-09-24 at 10.51.45 AM.png

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.

Click on NEW LOOK BOOKS at www.myrnahalpern.com to see the new collections.

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.
