THE HIDDEN GEM
The expected sound of car horns and the echoed hum of street life are the first sounds that transport you undoubtedly to a Park Avenue entrance. A white v-neck Heritage by Halston dress outlines the streamlined figure of a woman, D`eja` Vu? Yes you’ve got it, the opening scene Sex and the City 2. As she raises her arm to flag down the only mode of transport the sex and city girls ever use, we notice the deco style necklace adorning her neck, brought to full effect by the simple lines of the dress. The necklace is a statement piece made of diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds. The creator of the piece however is far from the celebrity spotlight; she is the woman behind the jewels and the glittering personas who wear her latest sparkles.
Solange – Azugury Partridge started designing in 1990 and worked with Antique jewellery specialist Gordon Watson who introduced her vintage Cartier, Tiffany, and Van Cleef and Arpel. Her designs are inspiring with a definite belle époque influence but with a strong contemporary effect, which does not overshadow the designers personal feelings that the Jewells represent.
The recent opening of her Bond Street salon, which is hosting a series of events resonant of the premises 1970′s nightclub feel, with A- listers such as Jennifer Aniston and, Thandie Newton amongst her disciples we have no doubt that London will make this hidden gem Sparkle eve more.
