S/S 2013: The Forty-Niner Rush (avail. online Jan 15)
Inspired by warm Pacific breezes and bright beams of sunshine, FPJ's Spring/Summer collection is all about the California coastline.
History marks this state as a miners paradise, where in its day, it was the first state to mine gold. It was the top destination world-wide which attracted immigrants by the hundreds of thousands all trying to strike it rich. The highest immigration numbers occured in 1849, these immigrants were known as the forty-niners.
Fredrick Prince Jewellery fuses warm brass chains and semi-precious stones in hues of coral, cobalt, blush and smokey grey; reminiscent of the rocks and minerals mined decades ago. That mixed with a playful nature and carefree coastal attitude, is reflective of the 21st century woman- our modern day forty-niners.
Here are some of the inspiration photos for the S/S '13 collection:
