la belle rose Expands with la belle rose II

Have you read about the first la belle rose collection yet? If not, check it out here before continuing.

Back in October, lia sophia released the ever so lovely la belle rose Red Carpet Collection. Well, just a few weeks ago that collection expanded with the debut of  la belle rose II at Lounge Tzigan at Villa Pacri, NYC. Here’s the official description:

la belle rose II encompasses not only beauty and femininity, but also strength and power through daring designs that meld traditional deco, industrial and old Hollywood glamour together with a rock and roll twist.

The result is a unique collection of breathtaking baubles that are both exotic and elegant. Share your confidence and showcase your style in la belle rose II.

As you can see below, much of the collection is truly an extension of the first collection. Here’s an overview.

Sequence

3 pieces – $125-350

My favorite piece in this collection is also the newest style to be introduced in the collection – Sequence. The bracelet comes in both a matte silver with jet crystals (above) and a matte copper with matte silver and clear crystals, while the earrings only come in the matte copper scheme.

Sequence Earrings - $125

Bullet

2 pieces: $375 each

The Bullet portion of the collection saw two more bracelets enter it’s midst only with a twist. While the first selections featured a combination of matte metallics, these new bracelets feature a matte base accented with enamel finish and crystals. Combos include matte gold with jet enamel or matte silver with ivory enamel both accented with black diamond crystals.

Bullet Bracelet - $375

Runway

5 pieces: $125-$650

With a new button ring in matte copper with matte silver and clear crystal accents as the edition of one ring, two bracelets and a necklace in a whole new color scheme of matte silver with jet crystals, this portion of the collection saw the greatest growth.

Runway Bracelet - $275

Cluster

2 pieces: $125-$200

These two went all matte silver with jet crystal accents which are a little bolder than their matte gold and black crystal friends in the la belle rose collection.

Cluster Ring - $125

Wrapped II

3 pieces: $150-$375

Wrapped II saw the addition of a matte copper finish for it’s earrings and bracelet along with an addition to the hematite finish in the form of a ring.

Wrapped II Bracelet - $375

Estate

3 pieces: $175-$700

Here too matte copper came to play with matte copper and clear crystal versions of the ring, earrings and bracelet.

Estate Bracelet - $700

Marble

1 piece: $300

Last but not least, this portion of the collection saw the addition of a bracelet featuring black onyx resin in the mix.

New Red Carpet Collection – la belle rose

inlaid enamel stretch bracelets from lia sophia's new la belle rose collection

Back in June when I wrote about attending the annual lia sophia conference, I mentioned getting a sneak peek at the new Red Carpet Collection and this week it went live, so of course my first thought… okay, second thought was that I have to share it with you all. The first thought was a certifiable case of B.S.O.S. (Bright Shiny Object Syndrome).

The new collection, la belle rose, combines matte metals with cut crystal then throws it into a mixer with Old Hollywood glamour, Art Deco and some military grunge (which has been popping up with regularity in the style world). Here’s the official description.

la belle rose encompasses not only beauty and femininity with the introduction of rose metal, but strength and power through daring designs that meld traditional deco, industrial hardware and old Hollywood glamour together.

The result is a unique collection of breathtaking baubles that are both exotic and elegant. Share your confidence and showcase your style in la belle rose.

You can view the entire collection here, but here’s a quick look at some of the styles you’ll find.

Bullet

$130-$800

A choker, bracelet and ring that come in matte silver with either matte gold and black diamond crystals or matte copper and clear crystals.

Several necklaces, bracelets, earrings and a ring, this section is also matte silver with either matte gold and black diamond crystals or matte copper and clear crystals and includes the most affordable piece in the collection at $60.

Runway Ring - $125

Cluster

$125-$200

A bracelet and ring each in matte gold with black diamond crystals.

Cluster Linked Bracelet - $200

Wrapped II

$175-$375

This earring and bracelet set is one of my favorites from the collection. Black diamond, clear and jet crystals are set in either matte gold or hematite. I couldn’t pick which finish I preferred so you get both.

Wrapped II Linear Earrings - $175

Estate

$175-$700

Earrings, bracelet and ring all clear crystals in matte silver.

 

Estate Chandelier Earrings - $300

Marble

$100-$300

Earrings, ring and bracelets with black diamond crystals, black enamel and tortoise, lapis or black resin.

Marble Ring with Lapis Resin - $100

The Red Carpet Collections are always a bit, okay, a lot more dear on the pocketbook than the regular lia sophia line, but you can get the pieces at 1/2 off with the Customer Save Plan which makes it a little more affordable. That is especially true with the rings, which usually are in the $100-$150 range, and earrings. These hoops from the Runway set, for instance, are only $30 at 1/2 off.

Runway Hoop Earrings - $60

Of course, I’ve only seen the collection in pictures. Here’s a first hand account from the Toronto Film Festival.

Pieces from the collection can also be found in the Sept. 27 edition of Seventeen’s Runway Insider and the Oct. 11 issue of People (pg 101).
