Kabiri prides itself on being a jewellery store that has no distain towards any genre of jewellery with exclusive collections from costume, fashion and fine designers.
‘Costume Jewellery’ often drives negative attitudes, but Kabiri knows that this genre of jewellery is not just about paste, glass and crystal designs that are faux vintage inspired. Not being tied down to precious metals, the new generation of costume jewellers can take more risks, and play with scale and materials.
TomTom, exclusive at Kabiri, breaks the misconceptions of costume jewellery, by creating an uber slick and modernistic collection. Statement necklaces and geometric earrings are easy to wear and reflect the current trends seen on the catwalk.
As a stylist, Johanne Mills is inspired by the fashion zeitgeist and changes up her collection each season but still remaining true to her own aesthetic. Mills is proud to be considered a costume jeweller, and uses materials that reflect this genre, wood, rope, crystal, and brass. By wearing a seasonal piece by Mills, you will be sure that your outfit is instantly on trend for the current season.
Despite being very on trend each season, the new generation of costume jewellers, do not produce throw away collections. The quality remains high and the fact that the pieces are signed by the designer gives the jewellery extra value which would only increase over time.
The United States has always produced very forward thinking costume jewellers, but the rest of the world is catching up and creating some very fashion forward collections. New international designers with Kabiri include Little Shilpa (India), Brokenfab (Switzerland) and Sahani (Australia). British costume jewellers currently making waves include Fred Butler, Jessica Dance and Gemma Lister.
So start embracing Costume Jewellery, there is a whole world of great design globally. For the time poor, Kabiri does the hard work and sources the top jewellers every season!
