Erin Wasson, Model Extraordinaire, Is Launching Her Own Line Of Fine Jewelry, And The Industrial Inspired Pieces Will Step Your Jewelry Game Up
Erin Wasson is the cool girl of modeling that I always secretly wanted to be, especially after she released her line of sassy t-shirts that read "nobody cares" and "ignore the girl." It looks like this multi-hyphenate is diving even deeper into designing: Erin Wasson is launching a fine jewelry line called "Wasson," and I have no doubt that the new collection will give me serious FOMOW: Fear of missing out on wearing.
“My love for jewelry is unequivocal,” she told WWD. The collection, which is made up of 25 pieces, is made in Los Angeles with sterling silver, 14-karat gold, diamonds, and pearls, according to WWD. The entire line retails between $500 and $2,500, a pretty hefty price tag, but one to consider if you're thinking about making an investment and buying yourself a nice piece of jewelry that will last you a lifetime.
This isn't her first time at the (jewelry) rodeo, though. Close friend and designer Alexander Wang once asked her to design body chains for one of his runway shows, which eventually turned into an exclusive collection for Maxfield. And eventually, manufacturer Pascal Mouawad brought her on to design a costume collection titled "Low Luv."
With a higher price point, you have to think, why fine jewelry, exactly? She told WWD, "Designing 50 stockkeeping units twice a year plus holiday for seven years, I saw a lot of product, but my lifestyle has changed to wanting less and wearing less, like a lot of people shifting to quality over quantity. And I wanted to work with precious metals and stones again.”The collection has industrial details and features "architectural elements such as windowpanes, doors, and fences as well as car headlights from the '50s," according to WWD. I'm definitely a fan of Wasson's menswear and edgy aesthetic, and judging by the layered necklaces, cool cuffs, and statement rings, the collection will definitely be one to check out.Images: wwd/Twitter
