You know we usually stick to sales and deals here on ShopTalk, but we just can’t not mention when one of our local designers is doing something fabulous. Take Erin Wasson, for example. She’s a supermodel turned designer, and she happens to be creating hammered, vintage-inspired, slightly grungy, sometimes avant-garde pieces for her Low Luv line at surprisingly affordable prices. Intern Sam Todd, with an apparent eye for design, reports on last month’s Low Luv trunk show at V.O.D.
V.O.D. held a trunk show for Dallas native Erin Wasson’s Low Luv costume jewelry line a few weeks, which is heavy on rocker-chic bangles, rings, and necklaces. The pieces were well priced, with many items retailing between $50 and $80. A number of Wasson’s admirers and many loyal V.O.D. customers came out to the Victory Park boutique to meet the designer and see the new line for themselves. Jane Aldridge, creator of the popular Sea of Shoes blog, attended with her mother Judy, who together held a trunk show at V.O.D. for their own costume jewelry collection last month. By the end of the night, most of the merchandise was gone, but guests took to the street block party-style to enjoy back-to-normal temperatures and signature cocktails from Victor Tango’s. Wasson might look familiar–this year she’s walked the runway for designers like Chanel, Isabel Marant, and Stella McCartney, and can be seen in fashion magazine spreads all over the world. The accomplished model also designs her own line for RVCA, showing her latest creations during this year’s New York Fashion Week in a Casablanca-inspired setting with guests sipping champagnes seated on thick piles of hand woven Turkish rugs. But if you couldn’t make it to trunk show, don’t worry–you can check out the Low Luv line for yourself on ShopBop.com.
The pieces are actually now sold at V.O.D. (We’re hoping they have this rad Aztec ring.) But for you at-work-pretending-I’m-working-but-I’m-really-not shoppers, visit ShopBop or Saks online.
