Bijules New Swimwear Line / Nyced

Kim Jules founder of the amazing NYC jewellery brand Bijules has now launched her swimwear brand with Marc Jacobs' Brazillian boy friend, Lorenzo Martone. Named Nyced (pronounced nicked) the collection brings a downtown New York aesthetic as an antidote to florals and palm prints. Think heat bonded sequins, bold corset lacing, oversized bows, with black and white being the predominant colours. This range is not for the shrinking violet!

Kim Jules rocks, not only is she stunning, my fav jewellery creation of hers is still the serpent nail ring! This girl keeps going from strength to strength!

Reggio Emilia / Lucy & Mattia

The 6th of June saw the wedding of Lucy (old uni friend and designer at Max Mara) and her stunning Italian boy Mattia. I have never seen anything that could compare to this wedding. Firstly the wedding party had been out in Reggio for a few days and had already slipped back in to old uni ways, then the weddding day came....
The Catholic Basilica Di San Prospero was stunning to say the least. Built in the 10th century and reconstructed 1514 and 1523.

The reception at Castello Di Montechiarugolo was magical. As sun shone we were greeted by prosecco, light and imaginative canapes. A quick look around the castle and rose garden lead the way to be seated for dinner (for 200 people) in the most breath taking courtyard within the castle walls.

Table arrangements and flowers throughout the day were lovingly constructed by Ying and his team from The Willow Shoreditch
The wedding had a distinct 'Fashion' theme as one might expect saying as the guests have and continue to work for fashion houses such as Max Mara, YSL, Burberry, McQueen, Dior / John Galliano to name a few!

(Lucy in her 1 of 4 only made YLS wedding dress!)
