“I LOVE jewellery, always have done. I feel that it completes an outfit. You can change your whole look just by changing which jewellery you choose to go with what you’re wearing,” Lily Allen told VOGUE.COM exclusively of her first jewellery collection, which – following her dress collection for New Look and a handbag campaign for Chanel in the pipeline – is the latest feather to her fashion cap.
The collection is made up of nine different ranges including coins and medallions, flowers, traffic signs, acid faces, girl charms, fruit, animals and poodles (naturally). And, having been closely involved with the creation of the trinkets, she is delighted with the results, saying: “I’m really pleased with all of the designs, we worked hard on getting them exactly how we wanted them from choosing the right chain length and thickness to deciding what should be in gold and what looks better in silver. I do love the animals though – the pandas are fantastic.”
The singer cites Chanel and Dinny Hall jewellery as her main influences and, with that in mind, come September we would expect to see plenty of Chanel-and-Dinny-a-like layered chains with lots of quirky touches and enamelled whimsical charm. Chic with a sense of humour, a bit like Lily herself.
