In August, we swung by Emerson’s studio on Newbury Street in Boston to drop off some jewelry for their SS13 Runway Show at New York Fashion Week.
Masha Orlov, the NYC-based stylist working with Emerson for the new collection, selected over 40 necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings from our recycled silver collection to pair with items on their Spring/Summer 2013 runways.
Backstage, the models prepped for the show and fielded questions from press.
As always, each piece of Sophie’s jewelry on the runway was hand-made using recycled silver, and hand-finished so each is unique and has a distinctive patina finish. The structural, minimalist jewelry offered an unexpected visual contrast to Emerson’s typically flowy, airy dresses and separates, and lent a contemporary edge to Fraser-Swan’s trademark rock-and-roll-meets-romance aesthetic.
Long pipe earrings playfully stood out against the predominantly flowing silhouettes, and boldly swayed as models sauntered down the runway, lending new kinetic energy that played off of the movement of the clothing line’s breezy fabric. Other standouts include the suspended bar necklaces and the cheekily-asymmetrical pipe necklace on silver chains.
