We have a brand new collection in the Shoppe and now online by Apres Ski. The Apres Ski range is by Barcelona-based designer Lucia Vergara and combines vintage and hand-painted wooden beads to create vibrant limited edition designs.
This range looks super cool and contemporary, while the colour palettes of the new collection are reminiscent of 40’s and 50’s themed fashion and design; think cutesy pastel diners, meets Joan from Madmen.
We created a set on Polyvore, combining two key pieces from the range with a fun, glamorous retro 50’s look, partially inspired by the beautiful fashions worn by Maggie Cheung in the film ‘In the Mood for Love’.
Oriental Necklace, £50, Apres Ski
Sand Bracelet, £29, Apres Ski

Aqua Pom Hair Pin, £9, Ann Marie Faulkenr.

Here are some other favourites from the new Apres Ski range:
As well as the Orchid Necklace, (pictured above) the Ebony Necklace has an oriental twist to it’s subtle 50’s style.
The Desert Necklace combines mustard yellow with bold black and cream stripes as well as cute polka dots and checks. Although it looks strikingly contemporary, we could also picture this piece round the neck of Joan from Madmen.
This cute double-layered combines pastels and brights with fun polka-dot detailing and accented with vintage beads.
The Dizi bracelet complements the pastel bright necklaces in the fun, combines cute pastel colours with pops of bright colour and polka dots. A perfect gift!
