From Anton with Love
Those of you, who have read my previous blog posts, seen any of my videos or followed me on Twitter (@theitguide), will know I have a penchant for Anton Heunis jewellery. This particular fixation began when the lovely gals at my-wardrobe.com lent me an Anton Heunis necklace to wear during London Fashion Week in February last year. Since then I’ve gone on to buy two of his pieces; a necklace (http://instagr.am/p/KlUxm/) and a ring (http://instagr.am/p/PlX6D/). I considered this to be fairly restrained as I was sorely tempted to buy the entire collection!
But this new-found restraint could be short-lived, as I’ve just seen the new SS12 collection that has landed exclusively at my-wardrobe.com. Beautiful bright hues of gold and turquoise feature throughout the collection; accompanied by Swarovski crystal embellishments, glass jewels and Anton Heunis' signature chunky styling. This coveted collection was inspired by classic films such as 'Antony & Cleopatra', and all the pieces certainly radiate Hollywood glamour.
Speaking about great romances, such as Antony & Cleopatra, reminds me that Valentine’s Day is only a week away. If you’ve seen the opening statement to my ‘Gift Guide for Her’ post, you’ll know that excessive slushiness on Valentine’s Day (or indeed, at any other time of year), is best avoided when dealing with me. So if your better half has a similar propensity, then Anton Heunis has unknowingly provided you with an excellent alternative to ‘heart themed’ jewellery this Valentine’s Day.
I’ve included an assortment of pieces from the new collection below; any of these would make a stylishly chic Valentine’s gift. And just in case anyone is looking for gift ideas for me (my husband, perhaps?), my favourite would have to be the mosaic detail crystal bracelet (number 5). How about you?
