NY Fashion Week 2010: Lia Sophia

As written for fashion blog
The latest installment of Lia Sophia’s Red Carpet Collection launched late last month, and I’ve been dying to check it out. Luckily, I had an hour to kill in between shows, so I stopped into the nearby Alice + Olivia boutique where the Lia Sophia gifting suite was set up. Aptly called the Lanaya Collection, their newest line of luxe, high-end jewelry is inspired by the natural beauty and exotic elements of Thailand. Celebrity followers of the collection include Paris Hilton, Stephanie Pratt and Tinsley Mortimer. Comprised of matte metals and multitudes of chains, unconventionally paired with geometric jewels and colored pearls, these chunky pieces are major standouts. I couldn’t resist picking up this ultra-long Fringe Chain Necklace ($700,, complete with violet pearls! It was love at first sight.

I also picked up this stunning Studded Pyramid Stretch Bracelet ($400, for J. The coolest thing about these cuff bracelets? The edges have ridges, so you can stack a couple of them for the ultimate statement accessory.

Hope you love it, Jules! The bottom line? This collection commands attention, so it is advisable to keep the rest of your look fairly simple. I can definitely see rocking these bold baubles with a deep-v tee and destroyed jeans for a chic, casual look. Or for something a little dressier, pair a piece or two with a sleek, monochromatic dress.
