Danielle Scutt for Freedom at Topshop

In times of economic crisis, the two ‘luxury’ items which flourish in the womens sector are lipstick and jewellery. With that in mind, the collection I created plays with themes of luxury, feminism and Surrealism  Danielle Scutt

Danielle Scutt, Central St Martins alumni and previous Topshop collaborator, has teamed up with high street jewellery brand Freedom to bring the high street a small collection of extraordinary pieces inspired by her most recent show.


The premium 'Show Collection' consists of limited edition statement pieces and is only available online at Topshop. Come May 1st the mainline collaboration will be available from key stores.
Inspired by luxury, feminism and surrealism the collection is undeniably sophisticated but with that quirky, offbeat edge that Scutt does so well - glossy red lipstick charms, shiny silver teapots, golden vines, matt fruit, oriental fans and enamelled hands are intertwined to create dramatic brooches, earrings, necklaces and belts. Danielle was also influenced by the jewellery worn by artist Frida Kahlo and artist created pieces commissioned by seminal arts world figure Peggy Guggenheim.

Plus, not for the faint of heart, a chunky three row matt chain necklace with 'hair' strands!

Retailing at £25-£70 it's not pocket money jewellery but is a cheaper alternative when it comes to buying in to designer pieces. Personally I'm loving the kind of creepy dolls house vibe from the 'ear, hand, teapot, lipstick' earrings but will probably hold out and see what the mainline collection will bring.
