Colette Malouf is a household name in the hair accessories world. She’s been in the business since 1987 and knows how to create one of a kind, beautiful hair accessories that bring your outfit game to a whole new level. Well this Fall ’15 collection is no different. What I’m truly loving is how she is bringing her jewelry and hair accessories into one world. They play off each other in the perfect way.
Colette’s Fall ’15 collection finds influence in the duality of androgyny: how a woman explores her masculine side through her femininity. “Steel Grace” encourages women to explore their power and express both their masculine and feminine sides. Contrasting elements such as rigid and fluid, structured and random, industrial and artistic are seen in this collection. I love and relate to this concept perfectly. I often find myself pulling menswear styling into my wardrobe and love the play on male vs. female dressing. Annie Hall and Chanel brought us effortless menswear in ways women truly related to. Colette is bringing this concept to a new age.
Colette’s free form shapes and manipulation of metal are what created the most interest for me. Her “Maneframe” square headbands are like nothing I’ve ever seen. She effortlessly takes an item we think that we know and tweaks it perfectly. Same goes for her Highline and Scribble jewelry collections. Asymmetrical and fluid shapes can be found in the beautiful Highline collection. I can vividly see in my mind the old train tracks along the Highline, now turned into beautiful flowers beds as the inspiration for the two-finger rings, hand chains, ear bars and more.
The Scribble collection is so quintessentially New York to me. It immediately transports me to The MOMA. It’s beautiful and modern and oh so NYC.
All of these beautiful pieces are works of art. Meant to be worn for years and cherished. Scroll below for your fall accessories shopping.
