Acclaimed New Jewellery from Vanessa Kandiyoti Arrives at Avenue 32 Online Fashion Store

Vanessa Kandiyoti creates jewellery that is beautiful and valuable, but also rich in meaning and symbolism. The starting points for each unique and curious design are the beliefs and imagery of her Turkish heritage; and yet it was a simple love of stones that set this talented young designer on the path to creating her eponymous jewellery label, now available at Avenue 32.

Belgian-born and Turkish-inspired, Vanessa Kandiyoti had always admired jewellery, art and culture, but had originally studied Law, until her travels through Latin America affirmed her love of jewels and stones. This was the genesis of her jewellery and design work.

Using the unforgettable imagery of her beliefs and superstitions, the designer has created a range of necklaces, bracelets and charms which marry beautiful 18 karat white, rose and yellow gold with magical diamonds, sapphires and other conflict free stones.

Her classic, mythological designs are more than just attractive fashion pieces but good luck charms; talismanic symbols of good luck and safety. One of the most predominant symbols recurring throughout the collection is the traditional Evil Eye.

The Evil Eye is a charm that is worn or used as decoration, and protects its owner from misfortune caused by the envy or ill wishes of others; whether envious of material possessions, beauty, health or offspring.

Available in a variety of bracelets and necklaces, each Evil Eye piece in the Vanessa Kandiyoti collection is more than a pretty fashion jewellery piece. It is a charm to be worn throughout a lifetime and cherished for more than good looks.

Now, these latest hypnotic designs from Vanessa Kandiyoti are available from the designer’s very own Avenue 32 boutique. Avenue 32 is your luxury shopping neighbourhood online. A place to purchase luxury clothing and accessories from world leading fashion labels, along with fine and fashion jewellery from the most acclaimed and distinctive creators in the industry.

On Monday, AllSaints Spitalfields celebrated the launch of Berlin Fashion Week with an in-store party at their Friedrichstrasse store in the city, with some of the most popular figures in fashion and music in attendance. The party, which included entertainment from Azari & III and Danny Red Rack’em, also gave guests the chance to have a sneak peek at AllSaints’ new Autumn Winter 2012 collection.

A spokesperson for AllSaints comments: “Our Berlin Fashion Week launch party at Friedrichstrasse was a great experience for all invited; we had some great music from Azari & III, while our guests also included the German model, singer and actress, Eva Padberg, Blitz Kids and Ben Ivory. Of course, for us, the highlight of the evening was the unveiling of some of the key pieces from our new Autumn Winter 2012 collection, which won’t be launched until July 19 and from the feedback we got from our guests on the night, we are confident that our latest collection will live up to our fans’ great expectations.”

As well as enjoying a look at the new Autumn Winter collection, guests at the party were also treated to 25 Euro Gift Cards to spend on the new collection in store, and indulged in a selection of Babuska vodka cocktails and bottles of Tiger Beer. With this successful party over, and with the official launch of their long-awaited new collection two weeks away, AllSaints are not only looking forward to their next launch, but also hope the event will further cement their position as a brand that’s not only passionate about fashion, but also has a fascination with music too.

The spokesperson for AllSaints continues: “At AllSaints, we see music and fashion in the same light; we love both equally, and we think that they are linked in a number of ways. Because we care about music, we launched our popular Basement Sessions featuring exclusive interviews and performances from some of the music world’s most-popular and legendary artists. Our Berlin Fashion Week launch party was a great way to give the people of Berlin something back, we love the city, its culture and its people, so why not share our love of music and fashion with them during this exciting time?”

Hunter wins New Footwear Product of the Year at The Shooting Industry awards

Hunter’s Balmoral Hawksworth shooting boots received the prestigious ‘New Footwear Product of the Year’ award at the recent IPC Shooting Industry awards. Competition was tough with leading field sports brands competing for the title. The Hawksworth stood out with its combination of classic design and modern technology. These innovative shooting boots use an original time-served Hunter design as the base, complemented by new technology including Sympatex® lining and rugged tread for a style that looks smart, gives great ankle support and lasts well.

Thanks to the lining, the shooting boots are waterproof, breathable, and comfortable for day-long wear. Their Balmoral multi-layer outsole with multi-directional cleats offers excellent traction and mud release in all conditions. Pull tabs allow the wearer to remove the boots with ease.

“Hunter Balmoral Hawksworth boots really are the business. You can walk in them all day long,” said one of the judges of his decision to award the footwear.

“The recognition from the industry that Hunter is continuing to develop and pioneer is very rewarding for us. Hunter continues to be “outstanding in every field”, and without doubt offers the best boots for the serious field sports enthusiast,” commented Chris Dewbury, Sales Director at Hunter.

The Balmoral Hawksworth combines tumbled and full grain leathers. It features a unique multi-layer outsole, and a mud-guard that forms a protective barrier around the side of the foot, providing excellent protection against wear and tear.

Two sets of shock absorbing insoles allow the wearer to vary the fit, making the shooting boots ideal for those who want optimum durability and exceptional comfort in the field.

The Balmoral Hawksworth is available in sizes 8 – 14. RRP £285.
