Whitney Port's Debut Jewelry Line Is Here: Thoughts?
April 26, 2012
Remember Whitney Port and that little fashion line she has going on? Well, The Hills and City star we all know and love has expanded her designs to jewelry and just debuted her lookbook for the upcoming collection, Bits & Bobs, available this fall. She expresses her design process and excitement on her website:
I have absolutely loved designing this first season of jewelry and cannot wait for many more! It has been such an intriguing learning experience to work with metals. I had a blast going through the bins and bins of chains, beads, brooches and vintage jewelry in order to achieve what we have made. I absolutely love making jewelry because it is that one touch of sparkle, that one statement piece that can make an outfit shine.
Sparkle and shine, indeed. Her lookbook images are completely ethereal, with kaleidoscopic images of the models against twinkling backgrounds, which to be honest, makes it a bit hard to focus on the actual jewelry. From what we can see, the premiere collection is a mix of quirk and whimsy—baroque-shaped jewels, trompe l’oeil brooches and charms, and geometric necklaces. What do you think of Whitney’s foray into jewelry?
