In fashion, there are trends and there are investments but spotting the difference isn’t always that easy.
Cargo pants: trend.
Flare pants: investment.
Logo tee: trend.
Vintage tee: investment.
Fishnet tights: trend.
Leather trousers: investment.
For upcoming trends, we turn to the runway but over the years, we’ve come to realise that it’s the streets that reveal the true investments. It’s the fashion bloggers, celebrities and street stylists that choose the best of the bunch from Fashion Week and transform it into everyday wear that withstands the test of time.
So when the likes of Margaret Zhang, Carmen Hamilton and Brooke Testoni (to name a few) started swapping their dainty, fine jewellery for bold, edgy accessories, we paid attention. Within weeks it seemed every style icon owned a different—but equally chic—statement piece. We saw Bambi Northwood-Blythe and Isabel Lucas in big gold hoops and Margot Robbie sporting tough chains and dark gemstones. Upon further investigation, we discovered that every it-girl was actually wearing the same, under-the-radar brand: F+H Jewellery.
It’s no surprise, really; the jewellery was designed for confident women. “The F + H girl is unfazed by trends. She wears what she likes and knows what works for her. She has an innate sense of style and natural confidence. She is unafraid to make a statement,” says F+H founder, Sharona Harris.
Launched in 2014, the local Aussie brand has a distinct personality. It combines the best bits of every decade—the 70s disco, the 80s excess and the 90s supermodels—with a modern flair, to create a style that’s elegant but edgy, tough but easy-to-wear.
And it is. We’ve seen the pieces paired with flirty summer dresses, a classic LBD and a basic tee and jean. They’re versatile, unique and effortlessly cool and it’s this winning formula that makes F+H Jewellery an investment, not a trend.
So, to celebrate the launch of their second collection, ‘Ride’, we’re giving away $600 worth of F+H Jewellery to one lucky reader.
“My new collection ‘Ride’ was influenced by the excess and bold fashion styling of the 80s, with my signature statement cross and heart earrings, layering rings and chokers, all adorned with black onyx gemstones. Best worn while dancing to a George Michael soundtrack,” says Harris.
