With a plethora of new statement jewels hitting the scene each season—laid out in the pages of ELLE, strutting down designer runways and adorning the collarbones and wrists of Hollywood’s fashion elite—it is increasingly competitive to breakout as an accessory designer. However, when a particular line of standout pieces surfaces with widespread acclaim, there is all the more reason to celebrate! Such is the case with Phoebe and Annette Stephens—the sisterly duo behind Anndra Neen. They created today’s insanely cool metal bib necklace…and then some.
During a recent trip to Roseark—my go-to spot in LA for extraordinary jewelry—I came across this stellar line for the first time and found myself indulging in every last piece from their collection. Out of control. Apart from this Metal Web Choker, which can be worn with everything from a faded t-shirt and jeans to a body-con summer cocktail dress, there are gladiator cuffs, cage bangles, deco bracelets and even a studded cross clutch to lust over. In short, I’d say Anndra Neen is medieval meets Mexico for the modern woman, but you should really see for yourself…xoRZ
