Radiant: Playful Accessories

By Jo Phillips

Summer is the best time for fashion experiments – leaving our heavy coats and countless layers of jumpers behind, it feels great to wear bold colours and light dresses again. However, changing the entire wardrobe just for the couple of weeks of British heat wave craze may seem like a big challenge even for keen shopping lovers. Thankfully, for both fashion eccentrics and those who may be a little less adventurous there is a great solution for a quick wardrobe fix – bold and playful accessories. .Cent presents lines that we particularly like this Summer.

MARNI WINTER EDITION JEWELLERY COLLECTION 2013
These Marni pieces made of recycled and pressed cardboard components make a perfect summery piece. Coming in natural cardboard colour as well as black, the designs are mixed in various compositions of crystal or glass strass. The brooches coming in stylised forms composed of recycled cardboard encased in gold metal structures and decorated with colour crystals are the playful twist on the idea of eco jewellery.
