Paris Fashion Week – Manish Arora + Amrapali’s Bold Jewelry Collaboration

If you’re anything like us, you’ve spent the last few months awing over the fabulous fashion at Paris, Milan, New York, London and Lakme fashion weeks. But of all the designer collections we saw coming down the runway, nothing made a bolder statement than Manish Arora’s use of eclectic Amrapali accessories in his Spring 2013 collection. This collaboration is definitely a match made in fashion heaven!

Manish Arora was paying major homage to India with his Spring 2013 collection. Between the Gota-inspired borders on his dresses, the vibrant hand embroidery, and the opulent brocade, these looks brought a unique Eastern flair to Paris Fashion Week. Our favorite look was this regal black dress, with its unique neckline and intricate embroidery work. It’s a new take on the salwar that would command attention at any formal event.

But what really made Manish Arora’s designs shine were the accessories. Inspired by Indian royalty, Amrapali handcrafted each vibrant piece to bring a funky, modern vibe to Manish’s garments. Colorful pompoms, quirky animal motifs, floral designs, and chromatic beads made these reimagined tikkas, hand chains and jhumka earrings the perfect ethnic additions to Manish Arora’s India-inspired line.

We’re loving the delicate enamel work on this lotus hand chain, which lent a major dose of the wow factor to Manish’s yellow dress. And we can’t forget how festive one model looked wearing oversized jhumka earrings and an eccentric pink tikka.

Statement jewelry can make all the difference in your style. For an instant hint of Indian opulence, try pairing your outfit with Luxemi’s Victorian Crystal and Black Stone Tikka or our Gold and Pearl Hand Jewelry. We also love the versatility and vibrancy of Luxemi’s Faux Pearl Belt with Emerald and Ruby Quartz, which will add the illusion of embellishment to a simple saree.

To emulate the earring looks in the Manish Arora collection, try these Sterling Silver and Pearl Jhumka Earrings and intriguing Kashmiri Kundan Wrap Around Earrings, which are definitely more subtle than the Amrapali pieces but still bring an eclectic ethnic vibe.

India International Jewellery Week 2012 – Top Trends + Celebrity Models

We like to think of India International Jewellery Week as the Lakme Fashion Week of the Indian accessory world — a chic celebration of the gorgeous jewelry Indian designers have been dreaming up this year. Want to work the best IIJW 2012 looks into your everyday accessory wardrobe? Let Luxemi help!

Emerald Everything

If there’s one stone that reigned supreme during IIJW 2012, it’s the emerald. Between AmraPali Jewels’ Panna collection, Saboo Fine Jewels’ stunning emerald collar and cuff in the Best of the Best finale, and Vijay Golecha’s mega-watt pear-shaped necklace, the emerald is definitely the “it” look for Fall/Winter 2012.

Luxemi’s Victorian Set with Green Onyx has the same decadent feel as some of Armapali Jewels’ best IIJW pieces. For a flirtier emerald-inspired look, we love this Faux Pearl Belt with Emerald and Ruby Quartz.

Flaunt the Floral

The summer floral trend has definitely migrated from clothing to accessories, as seen by the flower motif necklaces from IIJW 2012 designers like YS 18 and Kashi Jewellers. To rock floral jewelry for fall and winter, try Luxemi’s Pearl, Faux Rubies and Green Onyx Set. With intricate burgundy and green stonework and a chic floral motif, this East-meets-West necklace embodies the Fall 2012 fashion aesthetic.

Killer Kundan and Powerful Polki

Kundan and polki work are some of the most iconic techniques in Indian fashion, so we were psyched to see them get the 21st Century treatment at IIJW. Although many designers showcased stunning polki work at Day 5’s Best of the Best finale, the most memorable piece was the statement necklace Sonam Kapoor, the event’s brand ambassador, wore to close out the runway show. Between its tassel pendant and three rows of oversized stones, this polki necklace is getting major buzz in the fashion world (and for good reason)!

For a ready-to-wear spin on polki and kundan, this Kundan Set with Maroon Embellishments is simple, understated and super versatile. To get the layered stone look, Luxemi loves this Rectangular Kundan Necklace.
