HAMPTONS EDITION: Hello Mr. Hampton, meet Ms. Rock-It-To-Ya…by Christabelle
The Hampton’s have a certain reputation…pish posh, polished, polo playing, pedigree folks who summer out east. A little Lilly Pulitzer here, a dash of Ralph Lauren there all contribute to the fairy tale persona of this exclusive vacation destination. And though I am a fan of crisp whites, monogrammed anything, Hermes scarves and Calypso silk peasant skirts, there is an absence of edgier style on Main Street of East Hampton. At least up until this weekend.
As I snacked on my peanut butter and chocolate ice cream cone from Scoop du Jour,en route to Elie Tahari, blood red and black hit me like lightening bolts from next storefront. A new girl has hit town and she brings with her a rocker chic that ever so desperately needed to be filled – especially in the “haahhmptons dahling”. That new girl is Kristen Farrell – goldsmith to the stars.
With one peek at her collection, it exudes exquisite passion and work(wo)manship. With another peek, it oozes fierce style and individuality. With a third peek, it grabs you tight and doesn’t let go. You need to have it…and you need it NOW.
With every facet of her artistically hand crafted jewelry there are subtle details hidden within. Her appreciation for mystical creatures and medieval armor comes to life as wearable art, fashioned with the finest gems and precious metals. These “one of a kind” creations, to no surprise, have been spotted on some of the most influential people in Hollywood and beyond (Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba to name a fabulous few). And, who can blame them – Kristen Farrell sometimes spends up to six months perfecting one single piece of jewelry. With intense depth and character, Kristen Farrell brings a fresh, new rocker dimension to the upscale jewelry scene (did we mention this talented designer is only in her twenties?). Her energy, excitement, and passion empower each piece allowing the bearer to reveal themselves in ways they never imagined. Bring your AMEX BLACK for these exclusive pieces…starting price to own a piece of Kristen Farrell is $6K …all the way up to and over $110K. And yes, worth every penny.
Visit Kristen Farrell on your next trip out east and tell her Christabelle sent you!
