Black Swan


Symbolising ageless elegance, black is ever a sure-fire choice for making an impression at parties. Subtle plays on contrast and nuance ensure it adds instant sophistication to a look.

Liu Jo
The ballet tutu made trendy by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City inspires designers. This year Liu Jo does it in black with an asymmetrical top.

How can anyone resist the rebel allure of Repossi’s Blast bracelet in black gold pavé-set with 525 diamonds and one oval diamond?

Roberto Cavalli
What is sexier than a pretty pair of high-heeled sandals that make you swing your hips so sensually? These flaunt gold heels and tone-on-tone stripes at ankles and toes.

Resplendent with gold and the FF logo, this earbud holder to hang on your keyring is the latest obsession with girls in the know.
