Khai Khai Jewelry

  manrepeller6

Khai Khai Jewerly is a line by Haim Medine. The way I found out about him and his jewelry line is through on of my favorite bloggers Man Repeller, a.k.a. Leandra Medine; Haim is Leandra’s brother. She always wears KK’s pieces and they look stunning, take a look at her manrepeller1Instagram (@manrepeller) or at Khai Khai Jewelry’s Instagram (@khaikhaijewlery).

 Khai Khai jewelry’s designs are creative and fun, and the materials used are expensive and tasteful. It is basically a high-end fine jewelry line, but aimed more to a “younger crowd”. However, because of their prices, their “younger crowd” is people who know about jewelry and love it enough to spend even a month’s pay on a single piece… In other words, I’m the perfect target!

Khai Khai’s jewelry is very beautiful. I haven’t bought anything yet but I really really want the Leo Zodiac Medallion made out of 18 K gold on a background of mother pearl with yellow sapphire and yellow and black diamonds!

The Witty Designs Of Alison Lou

524277ce35fc35b464f44e0b7f279f2d

Love Jemima Kirke rocking Alison Lou!

Alison Lou is one of my favorite brands at the moment, the creative director and designer is Alison Chemla. Their designs are extremely fun and cheeky. From what I remember, Alison Lou became famous with her line of emoticon pieces. I remember I first saw her work on Man Repeller’s Instagram account about 3 years ago and I was dying for one of the necklaces. This emoticon series are necklaces, rings and bracelets featuring several icons from the phone’s emoticons. What I found really fascinating about this line is that it is a commentary to the change of a style of communication 719ca1afb60d6da728e9ec6b062528f8in modern society that has been brought forth by social media and technology. Now a days with the “lol”s and the “omg”s you can say so much with only three letters or a simple emoticon icon!

I think that Alison Lou’s emoticon line is not for everyone, it is for the people who understand her humor and wittiness. Like the poop face ring.. one of my favorites!

Alison Lou’s new line is the oysters, champagne and caviar designs that are only coming out this year. I talked about this line previously in another post. I can’t wait to see the pieces in real life, I’ve seen so many pictures already.

I bought the bashful necklace and I wear it all the time, it is so easy to wear with other pieces and it really looks amazing… I always get compliments! She also has a series of  “Screw U” earrings and bracelets and I bought the earrings where it is a small screw with a sapphire on the tip for one ear and a “U” for the other side.
