Rose Gold for Spring 2012

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

 

The hottest accessory that we are seeing for Spring is anything in Rose Gold. Yup, that’s right, from Alexander Wang’s hardware to Asics GT-II Rose gold kicks, it is positively THE color of the season.

What do the editors of GQ says about this spring trend?  “Mix a little copper into gold and you get its reddish alter ego. Mix a little of that rose gold into your look and you get a sharp, subtle way to break from the precious-metal pack.

As the name implies, rose gold can veer into Dame Judi Dench territory if you’re not careful, so avoid pinker shades and find pieces with an edge—dark-tinted aviators, punked-out chains, and watches with black faces. Shine on if you can spring for the solid-rose-gold Rolex, but remember: If you can’t tell something’s plated, neither can anyone else.”

How can you join in on the fun?

And with all your bling-ed out accessories, why not buy something for the lady too? She’ll adore (we promise) anything from Alexander Wang’s spring collection, completely studded out in rose and brass hardware. It’ll set you back around $1,000 but she’ll be the judge of whether it’s worth it…

And also for your expensive tastes buds to be quenched this season, London based company Tateossian was recently featured in the NY Times. So you’ll be buying “Alexander Wang” quality, if not better, jewelry for a 1/3 of the price. Want a sneak peak of the article? “On a global basis we’re known as a cufflink brand, but in the past year our sales have shifted in a way that we’re selling, now, more bracelets than we are selling cufflinks” online and in Tateossian’s own stores, said Robert Tateossian, the company’s chief executive.
