Warrior Soul Anthology: Edgy Jewels by Sally Skoufis at NYFW

Wear more metal.

Always my favorite motto, for I love clothing that is either entirely made of metal or with as many metal appliques, accents and golden threaded embroidery as possible. However, with a heritage of jewelry design and collection via my mother, I always sway towards impeccable tastes in accessories, hunting for the most unique of jewelry. The wilder, the better.  Which brought me to Australian jewelry designer Sally Skoufis, who showcased the origins of metal as precious jewelry at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). And what a classy way to showcase a jewelry line, indeed.

Located in the eclectic underground club of Dream Hotel, The Electric Room, with its neon signage, tiled floors and bronze flat chandeliers was a perfect way to showcase the edgy collection, which I chanced upon in my best nightlife outfit: a leopard lapeled Roberto Cavalli blazer to shy from the summer heat, and classic gold Dior eyewear.

The collection was called “Warrior Soul Anthology”, inspired by the inner strength of women. As a metaphor for armor, the models were decked in face, arm, neck and body jewelry, sparkling off their black high cut swimwear. The occasional whimsy of art in the background only elevated the sensuality.

The collection was saturated with earrings, rings, necklaces aplenty, but what caught the most attention was spider web body chains, snake rings with bejwelled heads or razor sharp claw-like nails on pendants. The wild side definitely evoked a sense of fearlessness, and were also seemingly gender neutral, a common trend on the runways too.

Several pendants had huge stones, with elements of Moonstone and Labradorite, amongst several elegant, precious and innovatively shaped designs. Those looking for single band rings would find them scarcely (although several were to be found on tabletops). Three tier rings with colorful stones, thematically placed on models to evoke expressions and create moods, often matched with necklaces, pendants, and presented an indefinite ability for buyers to mix and match.

The designer herself was exceptionally friendly and well knowledged on her craft, having featured in Vogue, Elle and other such magazines, often adorned by Naomi Campbell and Rihanna. Clearly a story for those looking at statement and edgy styles for their accessories.

Wear more metal,
A re-instated motto.
