a moment with jeweller Loveness Lee… a lifetime of unique jewellery

fashion

I took a moment of Loveness’ time this week, to have a closer look at her new collection as well as the beautifully unique Chinese zodiac collection.

Have you ever seen something so eye catching and dramatic yet so simple right in front of you? That’s what it felt to me to be among the fabulous creations from Loveness Lee!

Made with signature style, her skill set was perfected at Middlesex University followed by a masters at the renowned Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture & Design at the metropolitan university in London.

She has an immediately obvious passion for her work and she spoke about The ‘Trans-natural’ concept behind the jewellery, and that it is envisaged from a collaboration between nature, science and art working in unison. I was immediately drawn to her collections, so unique and fluid – the textures catching my eye and a not so immediate recognition of a familiar shape – especially within the Zodiac Collection – Made with delicate Sterling Silver Vermeil, Gold Plated 18″ chain. from £158.

Here the collection is traditional, it follows the Chinese Year Calendar, and even though you may think you know what your looking for; each piece is so unique and detailed it’s not obvious to Joe bloggs opposite you on the train to what they’re looking at, which is refreshing because these days everyone wears pieces that reflect a common shape or style such as stars, hearts, or even initials. (Even I’m guilty of this)

I recommend keeping an eye on Loveness Lee as it certainly seems that soon EVERYONE will know about her work and collections, and you just won’t be able to get your hands on a piece anywhere!

15 Years of The London Look

Two
British beauty icons, 15 years of London looks… Join us to celebrate the 15th
anniversary of the most successful, unrivalled partnership in the beauty world.
Rimmel and Kate Moss introduce a special-edition lip and nail collection in
Kate’s favourite reds and nudes. Revel in
timeless Brit cool at its best.

Rimmel’s
muse since 2001, Kate has always embodied the edgy styles and soul of the
capital city; she’s the true original spokesperson for the London Look. Paying
homage to Kate’s most iconic looks, the new anniversary collection celebrates
the different facets of her fashion personality from red carpet idol to boho
goddess.  

Kate
says
: “I’m incredibly proud of my 15 year
relationship with Rimmel. It’s a brand very close to my heart; my first ever
lipstick was Rimmel Heather Shimmer. The partnership has strengthened and
evolved over the years, with me taking an actively creative role. The new
anniversary collection echoes some of my favourite London looks from the last
decade and a half. I’ve focused on reds and nudes because they’re the colours I
love to wear – each shade reflects a different side of me.”

Building on this success of Kate’s debut make-up line that was first introduced in 2011, the anniversary collection stars six
lust-worthy shades – three reds and three nudes – each inspired by a classic
Kate look. The shades are:

  • Muse Red #51
  • Idol Red #52
  • Retro Red #53
  • Rock N Roll Nude #54
  • My Nude #55
  • Boho Nude #56

All of
Kate’s lip shades are designed to dazzle throughout the day with a full impact
formula that’s infused with light-reflecting Black Diamonds. What’s more, the
richly-saturated, luminous colour lasts for up to 8 hours. Your pout will have
the power to mesmerise. RRP £6.49

In addition to the lipstick shades, Kate’s
iconic style extends to her tips and toes so the anniversary collection also
stars four shades of Super Gel Nail
Polish
three new colours and one classic shade. To complement the crimson
lip hues, the supermodel has created new Rock
N Sparkle #044
, a shimmering red that adds glamour to any outfit. Kate has
also designed two new nudes for nails: Boho-licious
#015
, a suit-all creamy beige; and Gilty
Pleasure #071
,
a beautiful rose-gold that captures the celebratory spirit
of the 15th anniversary. Ms.
Moss loves a super-shiny mani and, thanks to Rimmel innovation, Super Gel delivers a flawlessly glossy
finish with the 3D volume of professional gel manicure. Its exclusive,
patented, two-step Gel Colour System uses a natural light curing technology to
create superior gel colour and shine that lasts for up to 14 days. Easy to
apply, it dries like regular nail polish – no UV lamps needed.  RRP £5.99
