Honeysuckle Pink

Have you noticed that each year has its official color? Last year we were diving in the coolness of the turquoise. This year it's the honeysuckle. Vibrant. Poised. Daring. 

This delightful reddish pink makes us think of carefree days of spring and summer as it produces a healthy glow on our skins when worn by both men and women. It’s eye-catching and uplifting hue works well for day and night in women’s accessories. Naturally, we find its alternative in pearls. Deep pink or lavender pearls provide a more toned down alternative to the vibrant honeysuckle, complementing it in a much understated way:

Pearl Couture

From time to time, big names of  haute couture go crazy on pearls. We have collected few most prominent examples for pearl fashion for you to enjoy and comment on!

Princess Diana's "Elvis Dress"

Princess Diana loved her pearls and she wore them very often. Known for her great sense of humor, Diana named one of her favorite gowns, encrusted with pearls, the "Elvis dress" because of its rich adornment and a high collar. The dress has been made by Catherine Walker in 1989 for Diana to wear during an unofficial visit to Hong Kong. Nowadays, the dress can be admired in Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

All Cameras on Pearls

Pearls has been recognized as one of the most beautiful jewels in the world. Shimmery and lavish, they provide also a great inspiration to stage costume designers. We found two beautiful examples of pearl-themed attires that are just perfect for the silver screen shows.

Simon Azoulay pearl costume

The designer calls himself the creator of jewel gowns. His stunning dress made entirely of pearls is a wonderful example of a stage costume that greatly underlines feminine beauty. It reminds me of Josephine Baker's costumes from the early 20th century.
