If you’ve got a thing for bold luxury costume jewelry, Aurélie Bidermann is your girl. Nothing says statement jewelry like her line of exotic pieces, and her Autumn-Winter 2012-13 collection proves that. Full of gold plated jewelry with intricate shapes, eclectic patterns and alluring stones, this collection has a tribal and exotic feel to it that is sure to add striking detail to your outfit for a special fall event. The designer even went so far as to make a video for her campaign that is just as mysterious as her collection.
The young French designer’s arrival on the luxury jewelry scene took time, but her story is nonetheless impressive. After graduating from Parisian schools with degrees in art history, gemology and technical drawings, Bidermann went on travels around the world in search of inspiration. It was while she was living in India during a visit-turned-extended stay that the young designer began creating mere “lucky charms” that were infused with stones and talismans from around the world.
In 2004, Parisian boutiques noticed her creations as they were being manufactured in workshops and began to distribute the brand. Finally, her creations became known on an international level between 2006 and 2007 when they transcended borders into London and cities in the U.S.
Always inspired and influenced by her travels, Bidermann's Autumn-Winter 2012-13 Collection uses gold-dipped snakes, feathers, lace, insects, and wheat to tell stories through her art. This line draws inspiration from historical Mexican, Latin American, and Spanish civilizations, as seen through her prominent use of gold— obviously a preferred material of the designer’s. Gold beads, chains, plates and cuffs translate the designer’s worldly travels into wearable pieces. Full of culture and eccentricity, this collection ranges in price from $149 to $3,776.
