Accessories S/S 2008
Despite her whirlwind schedule and insane workload, Slowey chatted with us about a few of her favorite spring accessories for today's story. She illuminated us as to why these particular items caught her eye and even shared a few notes on how to wear each piece.
Iossellani Multi Ring ($720)
The mash up of 18K yellow gold, silver, and sapphires is incredibly appealing to Slowey. She likes the vintage feeling of this ring, plus the interesting details make it a personal piece. We like the fact that the ring looks like it would punch you for calling it "pretty."
Shoes For Lovely People Crystal Flats ($125)
These multicolor snakeskin flats with cutout detailing charmed Slowey. "I love that the shoe is a little preppy and ethnic at the same time," she said, and we completely agree with her assessment.
Ligia Dias for 3.1 Phillip Lim Necklace ($970)
This runway piece is the handiwork of French jewelry designer Ligia Dias. Prior to launching her eponymous line, the designer collaborated with Alber Elbaz at Lanvin for three years. The ethnic necklace with turquoise stones on black rope is available at the 3.1 Phillip Lim store in Soho (212.334.1160).
Chanel Pink Patent Belt ($920)
The classic Chanel signature buckle belt got a new wave update this season. The neon pink patent adds an of-the-moment touch to any outfit. Also check out the Babe Belt ($99) by Acne Jeans for a skinnier style or the Melamed Demi Patent Belt ($160).
Wunderkind Vintage Acetate Cat Eye Sunglasses (price upon request)
These modified cat-eye sunglasses from Wunderkind are wonderfully usual and intriguing. Sunglasses junkies, we have the exact style number for you, just ask for the A 45: WKI 0002 B.
Jil Sander Bracelet Clutch ($595)
Slowey loves this smart, chic, dove gray mini clutch for evening. Though it's super small (5"x5.5"x1"), her three essentials items--credit card, key card, and lip gloss--fit nicely inside.
Sergio Rossi Splash Patent Paint Drip Pumps ($475)
These perrywinkle paint drip secretary pumps are a cheeky take on the season's obsession with all things arty. If you're not having a blue period, please note that they're also available in red or black.
