Oooh ooh ooh, what have we here? A big, bold, brash, gold, collaboration between super-cool super-hot songstress Yasmin, and fabulous and affordable made-in-Italy jewellery brand Gogo Philip? What a treat!
As you all know here at Planet Notion fashion and music are our two biggest loves…ok then, fashion, music and scones; so we’re always excited when the two worlds come together (fashion and music that is) to produce something beautiful…and even more so when that beautiful thing is affordable and in jewellery form!
Gogo Philip was established in 2008, and by 2010 had built up a cult following of fans (including us, natch). Fusing together vintage styles with of-the-moment references, Gogo Philip offered the kind of stylish statement pieces we were all looking for, and soon became the go-to brand for affordable more-is-more jewellery. With her cool-kid-cum-rude-gal with a healthy dose of Persian glamour look, Yasmin was the perfect choice for Gogo’s first ever celebrity collaboration. We’ve been digging Yasmin’s style since we first glimpsed her in Devlin’s video for Runaway, and have been giving her PN fashion snaps ever since. After all, while we do love a transatlantic trendsetter, there’s something even more special about a home-grown style icon.
If like Gogo, Yasmin, and us, you believe you can never have too many pieces of great big gold jewellery, this collection will be right up your street. Influenced by everyone’s favourite flash-trash fashion decade, the 1980’s, the 60 piece collection (yes, 6-0!) is full of chunky, textured, gold plated and plexi glass statement pieces that will add a healthy dose of ‘tude to any outfit. With prices starting at just £10 – TEN POUNDS! – getting involved is a no-brainer.
Available at Gogo Philip in Topshop and Selfridges from 23rd July.
