Assad Mounser jewelry x pink clouds
Dark, dramatic, and daring: Three enchanting descriptions that summarize Assad Mounser‘s jewelry for fall 2013. The jewelry designer looks at past and present, leading her to collaborate with Pink Clouds, a luxury vintage website. Combining heavy metals with organic agate, quartz, and druze channels into her 1970’s muse from the glam rock age that any bold fashionable would wear.
Jumping into the next century, Pink Clouds stylist Jennifer Collins molds a Lana Del Rey lookalike with vintage pieces that adds nicely to Mounser’s creations. Photographer Henry Mounser captures a gal who will showcase statement pieces day or night. Set in a gothic church in Brooklyn, the jewelry literally shines against the ornate scenery.
Mounser’s pieces drip delicately over the body. From chandelier earrings to cuffs to collars, they all wrap around the model’s form. Falling down the back, the gunmetal Reed Collar and navy Eno Collar paired with the Jean Paul Gauliter gown from Pink Clouds gives a mysterious edge. Layers upon layers of jewelry are piled on in Mounser’s lookbook to give that decadent appeal. The silver Pere-La-Chaise Collar and navy Iggy Collar overlap each other without overdoing it. By placing brighter metals over the darker ones, then the model doesn’t look weighed down.
about: After working at Moschino and Alejandro Ingelmo, Mounser began her namesake brand for the AW09 season. Following that, she’s had a slew of successes such as being listed as Italian Vogue’s 2009 “New Talent,” and joining forces with Cushie et Ochs for their SS11 runway show.
