The Show: Let’s Bring Back by Lulu Frost: Celebrating fashion icons from a storied past
The Theme: Timeless elegance. Three icons. Three epochs
The Collaborations: Lulu Frost reinterprets Belle epoque heiress The Marchesa Casati, jazz age activist Nancy Cunard and Surrealist designer Elsa Schiaparelli. With each piece, she introduces a new generation to the icons –and her reinterpretation with the jewels.

Best Standout Look/the Signature of the Collection: Each of the three collections evoked its very own mood. The Marchesa Casati collection spoke volumes about the Belle Epoque (“beautiful era”), in French history, in which the arts flourished. Lavish emerald necklaces were a visual art in themselves, but layered with chunky gold and crystals, they became a masterpiece. The Nancy Cunard pieces danced to life with bold bangles making a cultural statement. Finally, philosophy may have played a role in the reinterpretations of Elsa Schiaparelli’s designs. Evil eye jewelry upheld the secrets of a past movement known for its surprising juxtapositions.
