Dana Lorenz, one of my favorite jewelry designers, held her NYFW presentation yesterday at the Four Seasons Restaurant off Park Avenue. This season, Lorenz mixes pastel hues and precious materials into gorgeous oversized statements, inspired by the colors of Miami’s Art Deco buildings.
The Spring 2012 Fenton collection accomplishes the challenging task of appearing both polished and tough at the same time, with Lorenz expertly incorporating luxurious materials such as gold plated crystals and pearls into her signature bold silhouettes. Stones such as turquoise and coral are combined with silk threads and precious metals into unexpectedly luxurious combinations, but the scale and playfulness of the jewels keep it from getting too lady-like.
