28. Miglio Jewellery

My featured business this week is… Miglio Jewellery!

Screen shot 2016-01-05 at 21.52.06.png

Miglio Jewellery are a South African jewellery business based in the UK who I met recently at the Soeurs de Luxe Xmas Bloggers party.

Jewellery is an expression of individual style and few collections say it better than Miglio. – migilo.com

Miglio Jewellery was founded in South Africa by a husband and wife who had a passion for jewellery design. Each piece of jewellery has had a dedicated team to design and manufacture the piece to the highest quality and standard.

Miglio works under a single roof where operations are integrated from production through to distribution. 80% of all Miglio jewellery is manufactured here and the factory does 100% of the assembly and hand-finishing under strict quality control. – migilo.com

This stunning designer jewellery is made using the very best materials. I absolutely adore the range of colours and metals used in their collections, particularly their rich copper and rose gold colours which look so striking with an evening outfit. I also love their dramatic geometric and heart shapes which have such a beautiful, smooth finish to them. Their use of leather in their necklaces and bracelets gives the collections an ‘earthy’ feel and has the ability to be so versatile in terms of styling.

I received a beautiful necklace from Miglio on the day of the event. Not only did it look of a high quality design but it also feels that way too. I was so impressed by this exceptional piece of jewellery that it is now one of my absolute favourite necklaces and I wore it on New Years Eve as part of my evening outfit.

Check out some of my favourites from their beautiful collection below!

Inked Shop Review

Usually I only tend to review businesses from here in the UK but as this is a fashion related post, I’ve decided to go international as I absolutely love this brand!

Inked Shop, based in the United States, provides women’s and men’s clothing, merchandise and homeware from many alternative designers. They offer reasonable International Shipping although be aware you may need to pay a customs charge on delivery.

I absolutely love the different designers on Inked Shop and I especially enjoy anything Disney related. So imagine my delight when I came across this Frozen inspired T-shirt by Black Market Art! I absolutely love it. The design is so cute and whilst I normally don’t wear T-shirts because of the neckline, I really loved the scoop neck on this.

13. Alex Monroe

My featured business is… Alex Monroe!

Screen shot 2015-03-23 at 21.28.48

This week I am featuring jewellery designer, Alex Monroe. I first came across Alex Monroe on Facebook as another small business had shared their post on their newsfeed. The post caught my eye featuring their stunning new ‘Beyond the Sea’ collection which has recently been launched in store, online and also in Liberty.

Screen shot 2015-03-23 at 21.55.54

London based Alex Monroe has been designing jewellery for over 25 years and is inspired by natural world creating all of his original designs by hand. I think it is fair to say that I absolutely love every single item on this website! From floral rings to honeybee earrings and bicycle necklaces in gold, rose gold and silver. There is something to go with every outfit. I absolutely love watches by Olivia Burton and these natural world inspired pieces definitely compliment them!

Beyond the Sea is their most recent collection. A collection inspired by sea creatures, boats and all things nautical! I love the statement octopus necklace below and the cute intricate detail of the crab ring.

Screen shot 2015-03-16 at 22.29.48

Coco & Sebastian create absolutely stunning printed scarves which are inspired by the travels of Princess Coco and Sebastian. (Read their full story on their website by clicking here.)

I will be focusing on the Spring/Summer 2015 collection in this post but please go and check out all their ranges. Each collection is so unique and their lookbook images are some of the best I have seen! I felt so inspired by them!coco-and-sebastian-london-ss-15-product-info-_Page_2-860x607

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is full of gorgeous prints including a beautiful frog scarf, an image of a bear and of other insect and beetle inspired prints. The collection was inspired by the Garden of Eden. The colours are beautifully intertwined with the intricate detail of each individual pattern which is what assists in making these scarves so unique. I will definitely be taking one on my holiday to wear on the beach and in the evening. To demonstrate the detail of one of these scarves I have included the frog print below and a couple of additional favourites!

Whilst browsing the website I also came across the new Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. It’s always good to keep a season ahead and I absolutely love what Coco & Sebastian have planned! Their collection is inspired by folklore and I love how they have combined so many different patterns, colours and lines into the print. They look even more fantastic when you hold the scarf up to a window or light as that is when the true intricate detail comes through.

11. Ismad London

Our featured business is… Ismad London!

Ismad London, set up by founder Isabelle in 2003 is eco-friendly leather accessories business with beautiful bags inspired by handcrafted African crafts. What I loved most about these bags is how beautifully handcrafted they look, as though a lot of care has gone into the manufacture of them. I’m not usually a fan of leather accessories, but after looking through the pieces on this website there are a few that I have absolutely fallen in love with including the Alice Bag, Camera Small and the Sac A Dos collection.

logo

The Alice Bag is one of my absolute favourite pieces on the website. A sweet, compact girly bag which is practical and has the ability to match with any outfit. It comes in a range of colours including Tan, Black and Chocolate with a number of pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap. I love the chocolate colour, shown below, which I would probably wear with a pretty floral dress in the spring. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

ismad_london_001_1424169174

For bloggers like myself, having a camera is a necessity. The Camera Small bag provides the perfect solution for carrying not only the camera but any additional batteries and components you may need! It has two pockets at the front with individual buckles and a main compartment also with a buckle offering a secure fastening. I’m usually a bit funny when it comes to buckle fastenings as those bags don’t usually have much security for valuables however this bag is fantastic as it offers a zip compartment too! It is also available in a range of colours and is produced using eco-friendly leather. It is currently £89 with free shipping.

Sac A Dos is great for those who enjoy travelling. It’s great for a day trip that I would take out sightseeing or on trips over the summer. It has a great main pocket and a smaller pocket located on the front with a buckle fastening. It also has a fab secret pocket at the back which is perfect for storing any valuables! It is currently priced at £75 with free delivery.

10. Mojiana

Our featured business is… Mojiana!

I first discovered Mojiana at Pure London when I visited a few weeks ago (Click here to read my post on the event!) Their pieces were featured on the catwalk in several collections and definitely stood out as something a bit more unique and unusual.

logo-1

I want to share a collection that I absolutely adore – the Galaxy collection. A collection made up of bold, statement pieces which incorporate a range of materials. I have only recently really got into statement jewellery but once I started purchasing statement necklaces I can’t seem to stop! I wear them on all my nights out now and they definitely add that little bit extra to any outfit. i have included a couple of my favourite pieces below from the Galaxy collection below but make sure you take a look through the whole collection though as I would love to hear what your faves are! One thing I noticed about this collection is the range of patterns and shapes – every piece is different with its own different style which is what I particularly love about the collection. There are some fantastic pieces to choose from.

After looking through the other collections on the website I also came across two other collections I fell in love with.
