Savage Beauty + Fall Jewelry

Hello readers, hope you are all enjoying what is left of summer! The best part about being in NY in the summer are the many things to see and do all over the city. Do you live in NY? If not, did you get visit NY this summer? Particularly... did you stop by the Met and bare the lines to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit, Savage Beauty? Unfortunately the exhibit recently came to a close, but not before thousands of people (a lot of us here at Wendy Mink included!) waited in line to see his incredible designs.

Luckily, there are some gorgeous pictures here of selected pieces from the exhibit. Not only was the construction of each piece incredible, but the colors he used reminded me of many of the gorgeous stones in Wendy Mink collections, especially the new vivid gem colors of our new fall collection. I couldn't help wanting to line up McQueen's designs along some jewelry to see how the colors compliment each other. Below are some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit, paired with some of Wendy's latest collection that I absolutely love.
A nice pairing, don't you think?

For questions on any of the jewelry in this post, please email, and of course- all photos of the McQueen exhibit via the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alexander McQueen exhibit website.
