“Simply better than her bootleggers….”
Equal parts street and sweet, Seville Michelle‘s line of leather wrapped bamboo earrings have quickly become a staple on the lobes of fashion-forward icons everywhere.
It’s the year of feminism, power, humanity, and making voices heard and a unique collection by celebrated and edgy jewelry designer Seville Michelle encompasses the power of 2017’s energy and more.
The collection is called “Choke Me” and features powerful designs with significant meaning. ‘Choke Me’ is filled with fantasy, where the gold chains and pendants of saints and icons, much like the jewelry of her youth, take on new roles. ‘Choke Me’ explores the often suffocating challenge of being a woman in modern day America. The collection debuted through VFILES first ever marketplace this March 22.
Using religious icons and symbols Seville’s line of chokers in polished brass, plated in 14kt gold (available in real gold), soldered and hinged together in repeated patterns are statement accessories that can be worn casual or to a black-tie gala. Divine Feminine power is summoned in styles like Mother & Child and The Pearl Necklace, while The Feast,reinterprets the traditional masculine representation of icons to explore a feminine perspective that exudes power, grace, and femininity.
In line with Seville’s talent for reinventing 90’s trends, her new collection ‘Choke Me’ features religious icons reminiscent of medallions hanging off of big gold chains. Iconic religious figures and symbols are reinterpreted from the traditional male-dominated imagery into imagery that embraces the power and influence of the feminine divine. Made in brass, dipped in gold, ‘Choke Me’ is a feminine cleansing that explores the male-dominated pillars of faith found in Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.
Social media influencers such as Teyana Taylor, Bebe Rexha, and Sofia Richie are amid the recent stream of people wearing styles from Seville’s ‘Choke Me’ collection. This adds to the growing list of celebrities who all have worn Seville’s jewelry such as Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Ciara and Nicki Minaj.
