Formerly Known as…

>> This isn't my arm or ear doing a fine job of modelling all this enamel jewellery.  As if I could ever get my nails into perfect rounded square tip formation and of course, I don't have pierced ears as longtime Style Bubble readers will know.  This is in fact Linlee Allen modelling all of this Nora Kogan, formerly known as St Kilda enamel jewellery, namely their signature Man Ray lip cuff.  Linlee is a multi-tasking sorceress who can do PR, consulting, write for the likes of New York Times, W magazine and V and still find time to think up brilliant ways of arranging lip cuffs into awesome colour formations.  Linlee was based in Los Angeles but has recently relocated back to her hometown Melbourne and luckily, I got to snap her arms, fingers and ear during MBFWA in Sydney.  Given that I'm a stickler for accurate Googling, I thought I'd be all pedantic and mumsy and inform y'all that St Kilda jewellery (which comes up most in Google) is now called Nora Kogan jewellery.  I believe there used to be two separate lines where Nora split out her enamel and fine jewellery work but now it all comes under one big Nora Kogan umbrella.  You'll probably have seen the Man Ray cuffs popping up every now and again (that's down to Linlee's clever product placement action) but I didn't realise the enamel extended to teensy tiny rings and earrings too.  More is more is definitely the way to go with Kogan's enamel pieces, after seeing the way it's loaded up on Linlee here.

    Very simple. Love the desire to focus on the color than the volume and the size of the jewelry.
