She’s young, she’s talented and she’s one of the new London College of Fashion‘s graduates definitely to watch. This is Liron Kliger, an Israeli born jewellery designer, who after traveling in Barcelona, Paris, Milan and Tel Aviv is now based in London.
Her latest project developed from a fascination with snakeskin and infatuation with catwalk pieces motivating her to create her own interpretation via snakeskin inspired bangles designed for the catwalk.
Quirky, colorful, and extremely eye-catching, Liron Kliger‘s bangles perfectly match the goal of her research, aiming to create unique pieces encompassing the form and essence of the material used, and look ideally suited for a fashionable summery outfit.

Charlotte Valkeniers is a Belgian designer – recently graduate with an MA from the London College of Fashion – who, despite her young age, can already count on a well defined style and a strong passion for research.
Her De Fabrica Collection – partly presented in the slideshow below – is mainly centered on materials and shapes investigation. Knitted leather’s potential and the muscles of human body inspired her to develop such a line of sculptural jewelry, easily coiling neck and wrists and fitting like a loosely tailored dress.
“My objects reflect a little of what I have seen in ordinary everyday life. I’m interested in objects that are not only seen but heard; an object that can speak for itself or I can talk about. …Growing up, I don’t remember a time when we didn’t have some sort of animal in the house. At one point we even had peacocks, hedgehogs and a gibbon ape”
That’s what Tithi Kutchamuch a Royal College of Art graduate with a design studio in Shoreditch -London – says about her works. She’s already been awarded with several prices and nominations and her creations have been part of exhibitions throughout Europe and Asia. So, no surprise if one of the group-shows she took part in was even curated by Ron Arad!
Intrigued, but baffled by the unusual shape? Just remember that beauty has so many faces…
In the slideshow her Secret Friends collection:
A set of silk scarves on which an irregular herringbone pattern is printed twice, once straight on the square, once in any random angle, and a series of rolled-up and riveted hand-dyed leather multicoloured bangles.
Two interesting examples of experimental and challenging DesignOnYou style wearables directly from Bernadette Deddens‘s and Tetsuo Mukai‘s Studio in London. Better known as Study O Portable http://www.studyoportable.com/info.php the Dutch-Japanese couple is sticking by their manifesto focusing on the idea of portability and functionality in objects, with great passion and attention to methods of designing, producing and selecting materials.
That’s to say, investigating alternative ways to design objects – fashion items included – is still possible!
Tatty Devine http://www.tattydevine.com/boutique/index.php – a leader of trendy and fashionable handmade jewellery in England, started in 1999 by Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden – launched a series of limited edition set of bangles, that are the result of a collaboration with Susanna Heron http://www.susannaheron.com/ a site specific artist and one of the key figures of the New Jewellery Movement during the late 70’s and early 80’s.
They re-issued the Perspex Multiples that Susanna made already in 1976, inspired by geometry and “based on the shape of the hand and the arm in the act of putting on and wearing.”
