Bows are an iconic and timeless fashion accent. They never go out of style and are a pattern you see repeated in clothing, jewelry and accessories. The only time that bows faded from view for a time, was during the Art Deco period, when graphic shapes and angular edges were all the rage. Prior to that, bows were even present in men’s fashion throughout the Victorian and Edwardian periods bows were the foundation for a cameo brooch and for men, worn as bow ties but worn in a more flamboyant manner than they are today. In the 1940s the bow was ever present in jewelry and worn in the hair. Our luxurious bows edit features gorgeous pieces from vintage through new.

Silver – A color evocative of twinkling stars, the glimmer of moonlight, the twinkle of light on snow, and snowflakes falling, silver is a dazzling color to wear. The color silver is associated with the moon, fluidity, illumination and reflection; it possesses a feminine energy.

As a country with a global reputation for cheaply manufactured goods, China is now making moves to shake off its ‘Made in China’ label and show the world its capacity for innovation, creativity and ingenuity. That said, China’s fashion industry is caught in a contradiction. China is one of the largest producers of fake luxury goods, while at the same time boasts the single largest market for luxury retail in the world. This contrast has become the perfect breeding ground for a multi-faceted and diverse shopping culture to arise. Repression of Expression | Understanding the Roots of Modern Chinese Fashion To understand where China’ s fashion industry is headed, it is crucial to first understand more about China’s past ‘fashion’ standards. Up until the early ‘90s, China had virtually no brands or self-expression to speak of. Due to high inflation and a weak economy, Chinese people were relatively poor, only spending money…
