the edit no 3 part 6 ana kras knit wit sweaters jewelry garance dore photos

7 years ago by

Part 6 of our EDIT No. 3 is all about jewelry (and the smart knits to wear them with!). For Fall, and particularly winter, these two really lend themselves to each other. While some might find it hard to wear jewelry in cold weather, I think it’s the perfect time to embrace a bold earring, a fun costume piece, or jewelry actually built into your sweater!

What is so special about jewelry, is that it’s really for everyone. Even me, who’s general jewelry style… well, to say “minimal” is kind – “barely noticeable” is more like it. But even I can’t resist an interesting earring! So let’s break it down into three short categories of interest, and who better to demonstrate these artistic possibilities than an artist herself, Ana!

Our favorite newcomers to the bijoux world, please meet Sophie Buhai and Charlotte Chesnais! One Californian and one Parisian, both share a finite interest in sculptural silhouettes. While Buhai’s pieces are sturdy, solid silver and fit for the likes of Georgia O’Keefe admirers, Chesnais offers a glance into an almost galactic, future evolution of what jewelry can be.

Traditionally costume jewelry was meant to be very cheap, in today’s market it’s, well, let’s say contemporary pricing (although if you are buying online, it will likely be under ‘jewelry’, as opposed to its flamboyant counterpart ‘fine jewelry’)! But you can’t take the delightful jest out of this grouping – may it be a puzzle piece hoop earring, a duo of pearl embellished brooches or a set of oversized brass earrings reminiscent of… split petals I believe?! It hardly matters, they are Céline and they are beautiful! :)

Even two favorites like Aurélie Bidermann and Repossi, seen here on the site for many years, have found ways to update their classics. I love the rendition of Aurelie’s do brasil style bracelet worked into the neckline of a hand-knit sweater! And the Repossi black chrome gold antifer pieces are just the thing to make you suddenly feel like that’s all you ever wanted in a ring.

So while seasons change, and new designers come into the spotlight, there is always something fresh you can do with jewelry. And for fall, I think the possibilities are endless… and so is that stack of sweaters calling your name!

  • Je trouve ça très jolies mais c’est étrange quand j’essaye de trouver un bijoux pour moi je ne trouve jamais rien qui me va. Pourtant j’adore et je trouve ça sublime !
    Il y a-t-il un secret pour trouver des bijoux adaptés à son style et à sa morphologie (j’ai des touts petits doigts et poignés et croyais moi c’est une galère !)


  • Ces photos sont sublimes. C’est bon (parce que si rare) de voir le grain de peau d’une fille (sublime elle aussi)!
    Merci !

  • Merci Laura! :)

  • Brie, j’adore ton stylisme ! Je le trouve toujours très juste, très photogénique et très intéressant !
    A bientôt !

  • Merci Marielle! bisou

  • There is something quite contradictory in wearing knit with super bold metal earings that fascinates me! Soon to dare it….

  • large jewelry does not work with long hair, and certainly not once you add winter scarves and coats into mix! I don’t even like tops with buttons and zippers on them- they seem only made for those with short hair. my long curls get caught in all that stuff.

    Noting like knits and jewelry to make a statement – LOVE IT!
    Take a look at this knit,


  • Just cut my hair to above my shoulders and have actually worn the same pair of silver dot earrings everyday for years … but OMG, after seeing this I think it’s time for another change to big, beautiful earrings!! egads how fun!

  • This post is wonderful.

    I was always for dainty jewellry stacked up over sweaters but I see how statement ones make a bang !

  • Depuis quelques années la création de bijoux s’est renouvelée. Du vent nouveau dans les matières, les volumes, les proportions ont été apporté par les créatrices” nouvelle génération” c’est ce que je travaille aussi (et dire que je ne portais pas de bijoux avant ;) )

  • Thank you for sharing this post!!!
    I love jewellery so so much, especially the ones inspired by ancient greece and egypt… amazing!!!

  • J’adore j’adore j’adore! Sublime cette série!
    Un pull, un bijou… Un mariage délicat, qui peut souvent tourner au bling-bling ou au “look de prof pas sympa”.
    Alors que là non, c’est chic ET cocoon ET timeless. Bravo Brie et la team!

  • merci ann-louise!

    Stunning photography! I love the jewelry and knit mix! So fun and bold but still classic in a way.
    I have a few David Yurman and Alexis Bittar pieces that I love, easy to wear, go with everything type of pieces. I also have a few heirloom handed down pices, some I can wear everyday and some for more special occasions. But I try to wear jewelry everyday, it was made to be worn not sit in a box!

  • Thank you Jennifer!! :)

  • Ana looks stunning on the photos. Erik, great job.

  • Superbes photos comme d’habitude !
    J’aime particulièrement la première qui met en valeur la femme et les bijoux en même temps
    Ces photos sont très inspirantes comme d’habitude …

  • Gheria Bijoux reflects your inner light: decouvez vous!!!

  • Même si j’adore les différentes combinaisons gros pulls (qui ont l’air tellement parfaits!) et bijoux, j’aimerai beaucoup connaître les détails de la mise en beauté parce que c’est magnifique!

  • Coup de foudre pour les bagues mais aussi pour les pulls.
    La derniere photo est magnifique.

  • Merci Sevan! :)

  • Reading this with my Saturn earrings on <3
    Great edit!

  • love the idea of knits with minimal statement jewelry

  • J’adore le pull et les bijoux du look 6!

    Bizous, Christelle

  • This inspires me a feeling of luxurious coziness, it looks effortless, yet high end. Wonderful!


  • Magnifique série, j’adore le stylisme, que de belles inspirations. Je crois que je vais me mettre aux BO fantaisies moi aussi…
    Belle semaine,

    Tiens, moi c’est au contraire quand il fait chaud (pardon : chauuuuuud) que j’ai du mal à porter/supporter les bijoux. En hiver tout va bien ! Comme mes tenues sont plus sobres et plus cocon en hiver, je peux mettre mes bijoux énormes et ultre-bariolés préférés et ça passe !
    Un truc bizarre : j’ai réalisé il y a quelques jours que mes bijoux de voyage (mode routarde sac au dos) sont exactement ceux que je ne porte pas le reste du temps : je passe ma vie à mettre des gros colliers et des boucles d’oreilles mais quand je baroude, c’est bracelets et bagues, qui normalement m’encombrent dans mon quotidien … Weird!

    How lovely Ana Kras!

  • Beautiful lips! Lipstick name, please!

  • Yes, adore the lips, what lipstick have you used. Gorgeous photos.

    Hello ! Bravo pour l’article et les photos sublimes … mais les bagues antifer de Repossi sont en or noir et pas en acier ! Malheureusement … car elles seraient moins chères ! J’en ai une antifer en or toute simple et je l’adore et je ne la quitte pas … Si je me trompe et qu’il existe une gamme plus abordable en acier … confirmez-moi le viiiite !
