| Indie Spotlight and Designers on the Rise Guide
Indie Scoop
Language Jewelry is designed by Geeta Patel, a British-born Indian designer who is now based in northern New Jersey. Patel studied fashion at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, with her MA collection earning her sponsorship from the British Fashion Council. She went on to work for designers like Hussein Chalayan, Donna Karan, and Narcisco Rodriguez before launching her own line in spring 2011. The collection has a modern vibe with an aesthetic that is both on-trend yet surprisingly simple. We love the mixed materials and themes of this cuff, which is on sale in Patel’s Etsy shop for $66.

With the weather hitting 70º in NYC this week, it’s time to trade your chunky knit neck warmers for something more seasonally appropriate, like Palette Passions’ hand painted silk scarves. We love the array of brights and pastels available, and the price tag only makes them more appealing: each scarf is just $27. Wear them around your neck, on your head, or tied to your handbag to add a pop of color for the first days of spring!

The amazing weather over the past couple days in New York has us ready to break out the bold florals. And what could be a better way to brighten up an outfit for spring than chunky, bright statement jewels? These pieces by designer Rodrigo Otazu incorporate Swarovski crystals and other eye-catching elements like jasper and moonstone for a luxurious, fashion-forward take on the floral trend.

IMG_0307_stripeblazer__45432_std.jpgKoshka is our go-to online shop for funky socks and tights, but lately we find ourselves coming back again for the clothes! This week we fell in love with this casual but ultra cool zig-zag blazer by Japan-based brand Fil de Fer. It’s very lightweight, and the print is perfectly on trend for spring. Practice mixing prints, or pair the jacket with brights or neutrals for a fun, easy outfit update. Since it’s such a trendy piece, we’re happy with the price tag too: just $85.
