The designers who thread pearls

Mode Bijoux A Perles

A few seasons ago, on the jewelry side, it was time for minimalism . We liked the clean lines, the monochromes and the very fine designs. But that was before. Make way! From now on, the gri-gri is uninhibited and signs the great return of the pearl , and more particularly of the colorful necklace in the playground.

Like us, the designers feel a mad desire to adorn themselves with feel good and regressive summer jewelry and do not stop putting on pearls: glass, shell, freshwater pearls, plastoc ', discreet or tape by eye, surfer style , Pocahontas , Africa or playa ... We take stock of the most desirable collections of the season, to accumulate and mix endlessly.

Hop Jewels

The designer: we cannot reveal to you for the moment who is behind this new jewelry label, under the code name Hop Jewels . All we can tell you is that it does not betray its colorful universe at will. Mystery and gumdrop...

The collections: pretty naïve necklaces and bracelets, playground spirit. You probably had similar ones in your treasure box when you were small, so it is with divine regression that we rediscover the pleasure of wearing these multicolored pearls . Ready to play bungee?
