There are lots of things that get me really excited. A crisp French champagne, delicate Hervey Bay scallops, a pair of statement heels, soft silk (preferably designed into a stunning frock) and the big one … sparkling jewels.
My love of Chelsea de Luca sparkles has been well documented on this blog. I love that she’s from Brisbane. I love that celebs (Elle Macpherson, Kylie Minogue, Rose Byrne, Beyonce and Gywneth Paltrow to name a few) have worn her designs. I love that when you wear a piece from Chelsea’s collections, you feel a little bit like a celeb too.
But mostly I’m just plain in love with her exquisite designs and her latest collection, Una Bella Vita, heralds a whole new level of love.
I first viewed the collection at its unveiling at last August’s Mercedes-Benz Brisbane Fashion Festival so it’s been a while between glimpses.
This collection intertwines Chelsea’s Italian heritage with her signature vintage style. It’s glamour plus and for the first time, she has used coloured tones and gold pieces.
“The bigger and bolder, the better,” is Chelsea’s mantra and this collection does not disappoint. You WILL make a statement and that’s just what wearing bold accessories is all about.
Oh, and I can recommend a mail order through Chelsea’s flagship store in New Farm. It arrives gorgeously packaged and yes, you do feel like a princess, albeit a princess with a penchant for vintage glam.
