Sprung Up

>> Kirsty Ward has made quite the knack out of combining jewellery and clothing so that one piece jumps seamlessly from one another, mirroring structure and palette and ensuring that both tell a somewhat similar tale.  Her metal spring jewellery has been something of a trademark for Ward and it has served her well with creating dynamic necklaces and bracelets, which quite literally make me think of all the best "!!boing!!" onomatopoeic noises that one can imagine.   For A/W 12-3, her metal springs turn into hues of vivid green, pink and olive which are designed to stand out against her backdrop of cleaner and in my opinion much sharper silhouettes in grey, black and white with touches of jade green employed where necessary.  In the past where Ward has used cut-out and looped constructions in the clothes, this time round, the silk tunics and layered organza dresses allows the jewellery to do all the talking.  It's not all function and white washed cleanliness though.  One particular dress combines   embellishment and function as a thin breton stripe shift dress with sheer sleeves plays host to rows of metal springs and hoops with plastic green palm tree fronds sprouting in linear formation.  Who knew plastic foliage would rock my boat?  Any hint of summery tropicana though in what is still an A/W 12-3 collection is firmly muffled by the weighty jewellery that is still Ward's primary focus.

    Her clothes and jewellery really work nicely together. The green earrings are really quite cool.

    These pieces are so wonderfully unique and – in an odd, round-about way – quite thought-provoking. Especially those bracelets that are adorned with what look like the mini bulbs used at school to construct circuits… Though, I think that may just be me!
    Best wishes,

    I love those green tones, green is one of my favourites colours. I love the green jewelry, it’s so different. This collection is very creatively displayed, with the semi tropical feel creeping in there.

    Those necklaces are quite amazing! And that pink necklace in the middle looked great with your shark-themed outfit 😀
