Pyrrha x Liberty London Jewellery Collaboration Launch
The Talisman-‘A magical renowned object that is known for providing good luck and protection from evil or harm’
Just in time for the holidays, Pyrrha has united with Liberty London to design a custom talisman based on the luxury department store’s iconic family crest.
Following seven years of sharing its signature jewellery collection with Liberty London customers, designers Wade and Danielle Papin have created a unique talisman inspired by the historic crest, which was first drawn for Arthur Lasenby Liberty in 1898. This Pyrrha X Liberty London exclusive features a castle, signifying strength and vigilance, fleur de lys, representing light and life, and a lion, symbolizing courage.
Pyrrha designers Danielle and Wade Papin have been creating jewellery using time-honored, old world techniques from their Vancouver, Canada studio since 1995. Handcrafted using reclaimed sterling silver, bronze, and 14K gold with conflict-free stones, Pyrrha jewellery features authentic wax impressions and imagery from the Victorian Era. Each iconic talisman is designed to inspire the wearer with its symbolic meaning culled from heraldry. The inspirational jewellery brand has appeared in films and television shows around the world and has been worn by countless celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Richard Madden, and Kate Beckinsdale.

British fashion icon launches her first eyewear collection for Specsavers
AS SHE gears up to celebrate 50 years in the business in 2016, British fashion icon Twiggy has collaborated with Specsavers to design an elegant, stylish and glamorous range of glasses.
The Twiggy for Aurora collection, available exclusively at Specsavers, has been designed for women like herself who want to look chic and stylish but love to have fun with fashion.
The range features six sophisticated styles each encrusted with gemstones in different colours with a signature crystal on the tips of the sides.
Twiggy, who also models the collection, says: ‘I’m so excited, I have always wanted to design a range of eyewear and I hope that I can inspire other specs wearers through my new collection.
‘I have been a glasses wearer for more than 20 years, I need them for reading, driving, watching TV, pretty much everything really! I have always had numerous pairs in different shapes and colours as I love to change my glasses depending on what I’m wearing, so it’s extremely exciting to be able to design my own now!’
Twiggy took inspiration for the range from her own wardrobe and attitude to fashion. She says: ‘I love fun and stylish looks and it’s very important to me to be comfortable. Also, being chic and stylish never goes out of fashion.
‘I wanted the collection to allow women to experiment a little, try different shapes and colours and think of their glasses as part of their overall style and look. I think colour on the face is fun. If someone has always worn very plain glasses they should try a style like Aurora Amethyst, which is a gorgeous deep warm red tone that is very flattering.’
Twiggy says it’s hard to have a favourite among her new collection as there’s something for everyone:
‘I absolutely love these gorgeous navy blue tortoiseshell frames. How cool can you get?! They’ve got a very slight cat’s eye shape, sapphire crystals on the sides and, of course, the signature Aurora crystal on the tips.’
‘I love these pretty, delicate silver metal frames decorated with beautiful pale blue crystals. I can wear them day or night as they’re so chic and elegant, and being so light makes them extremely comfortable.’
‘Look at that colour – aren’t they fabulous? The cat’s eye shape is very flattering on the face. They’re so cool and fashion forward, which I love.’
‘There’s a beautiful warm, soft tone to these frames with the pink crystals and mother of pearl on the sides. Perfect for dressing up and down.’
Aurora Rose Quartz:
‘I absolutely adore the colour of these pretty pink frames. They are fine and subtle but brought to life with gorgeous square cut Swarovski stones on the sides, very wearable!’
‘These are real showstoppers! Strong and stylish softened by beautiful crystal detailing on the front. They will add the wow factor to any outfit!’
The Twiggy for Aurora collection is available exclusively from Specsavers. Priced at £125, there are six sophisticated styles to choose from, which are also included in the Specsavers two for one offer.
