There are times when you meet someone, smile, say ‘hi’ and move on. Then there are times when you meet someone else and you feel like you have known them forever, conversation flows like water and then you each ask each other what their sign is – because that’s just normal… right?
Well, this was my story when I walked into Dagny & Barstow on the Bowery for the launch of Annelise Michelson’s jewelry line in NYC. My dear friend Peju told me I needed to haul my ass over to this event immeeeeeediately. Ugh, I was tired but I knew for some reason I needed to go. I threw on my winter uniform (leather Brunello Cucinelli pants, denim shirt layered with a fur-collared sweater, an oversized swing coat and my Isabel Marant embroidered boots) and headed over. As soon as I walked into the boutique Annelise was standing right before me and the rest is history.
Unbeknownst to myself I was already familiar with her line. Oh yeah! Last season in Milan for fashion week, I kept eyeing Tamu McPherson’s jagged ear piece until she finally told me who it was by. Then I started seeing these “crown” rings in different sizes and metal shades in the all the magazines. Some were even chained together. This girl is speaking my kinda language!
So back at the boutique, Annelise gave me a tour of her new line when it all flashed back to me – “wait you are the one who makes these????” I all of a sudden became that little girl in a candy store trying to keep her hands off all the different goodies. I wanted everything! Obviously that didn’t happen, BUT I did walk away with my prized Little Thorny Ring from her Carnivore Collection. Mama was happy. This was followed by brunch a couple days later and tea with Ms. Laure Heriard Dubreuil of The Webster Miami who has also officially become an AM fan as well. Stay tuned Miamians.
Here are my pictures from the event as well as her other famed pieces. You can visit Annelise Michelson’s site here at http://annelisemichelson.com. Bisous NYS
