Lucy Folk 'Tropicalismo' SS13

If you like Pina Coladas…

Melbourne jeweller Lucy Folk is making us hungry. Her SS13 collection, 'Tropicalismo' is essentially onomatopeic. It looks like it sounds, that is colourful, fun, fruity and delicious. The designer was inspired by the culture of Brazil while making the line, and the flavours of the country — the watermelon, pineapple, lemon, moqueca and cocktails are all represented in the hand-crafted offerings within the range — from dainty silver rings, beaded necklaces decorated with blood orange pendants and stitched collars that resemble slices of fruit. 

Fish bones, palm leaves and the bold colours of the favela also make an appearance in the Carmen Miranda-appropriate collection. If you "like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain", or if your name is Lola and you like to "merengue and do the cha-cha" — this one's definitely for you.
