Instant Spring update: new turquoise bangle by Aleyne
For an instant wardrobe update this spring/summer 2012 all you need is a chunky bangle. Seen decorating wrists everywhere from Fendi to Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and Balmain, they range from the subtlest gold metal cuff to some of spring’s most attention-grabbing gemstones.
The easiest way to wear the trend is to sport a single bold piece—and here is our first pick of the new season, an asymmetric polished bangle designed by Aleyne in spring’s most attention-grabbing stone, turquoise.
This fabulous bangle is thick and chunky, ranging from an inch wide to half an inch, and from narrow to wide—its sculpted shape is so artistic, and we haven’t seen another like it. And of course, due to the nature of the stone, natural variations occur in the size and markings, making no two bangles ever quite the same.
The turquoise stone goes beautifully with summer colours: spectacular with tangerine, yellow, green, bright blue and shocking pink, and sophisticated with classic navy, neutral beige, graphic black and white. Limited stock. RRP £60. CCUK £35.
