Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week: Lulu Frost

– By Teresa Greenfeld –

Inspired by, and in collaboration with personal friend and author Lesley M. M. Blume’s book, Let’s Bring Back, designer Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost created three collections in one for Spring 2013, each evoking the spirit of three icons referenced in Bloom’s tome.

The first, based on Belle Époque heiress the Marchesa Casati, showcased piles of draped celestial pendants and necklaces, sparkling with emerald-green and crystal colored jewels.  Serpent shaped bracelets and green jeweled cuffs were piled elbow high. The second collection infused neon resin and sparkling crystal, with woven batik fabric appearing in each piece; the inspiration drawn from Jazz Age activist Nancy Cunard.   The third jewel in Salzer’s Spring crown called upon Surrealist designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and featured playful and whimsical lobster-shaped brooches, linked lips and pearl collar necklaces, sparkling, oversized evil eye chains, and sapphire stone adorned bracelets, dripping with tassels.

Three very different, yet equally iconic muses translates to a triple-threat collection; transcending singular style identity, and ensuring absolute versatility.  Salzer has certainly stretched her (presumably jewel-encrused) legs, and shown her range with great success.
