Silver Star – when you long to get away

This summer, our city amazons will once again be wearing silver-tone jewellery with dark decorative stones in an ethnic design. We’ve put together some trendy items from our collection that are ideal for stylish excursions through sun-filled urban canyons. Large, chased bangles, luxurious neck ornaments and feather-light drop earrings are real head-turners. The set of seven rings is a great starting point! Almost every finger can be adorned with its own personal favourite ring. Three metal feathers and round ornaments decorate the antique silver-look hair clasp. That has to be the best way to tame summery flowing locks. Our favourite piece is the magnificent necklace with semi-circular amulet and fringe trims. Wear it with a white top for the perfect summer outfit! The round ornamental drop earrings with brown and white feathers are simply enchanting. The elaborately decorated bangle shimmers mysteriously with white and black rhinestones. How will you put together your silver-tone ethnic favourites?

An exclusive interview with Minx designer Eva Lutz

In January, we celebrated a wonderful début with the exclusive fashion label Minx by Eva Lutz at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate. For the first time, a carefully chosen selection of our jewellery accompanied the beautiful creations of designer Eva Lutz on the catwalk. We were overwhelmed by the fantastic show and we loved working with Eva and her entire team. Now we’re addicts, and it’s been officially decided: We’ll be partnering Minx once again at the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin at the end of June!   But now it’s high time to get to know the creative mind behind the Minx label a little better. Even though Eva Lutz is right in the middle of developing the new collection for spring/summer 2017, she has taken time out to answer a few of our curious questions. Maybe she’ll reveal one or two details to us? Wait and see! Caption: „Fashion is more than just lovely clothing. Fashion inspires our own personalities and sends out signals in our individual environment. We’re not talking about mere visual stimuli here, more about motivation and passion.“ This is the philosophy that inspires Eva Lutz.   BB: Dear Eva, thank you so much for giving us a few moments, especially in the run-up to MBFW! Is this a very demanding time for you at the moment? How do you deal with stress? Eva Lutz: At the moment, we’re going through what might be called the critical phase of the preparations, and of course it can be stressful sometimes, but I focussed on the designs fairly early on, that’s my passion. So I experience this type of stress as being something very creative and enriching for my work.   BB: At Fashion Week in January, we accompanied you with Bijou Brigitte for the first time. What is the importance of jewellery for you as a designer, and what are your criteria when you’re choosing it to go with your creations? Eva Lutz: For me, the central question is always how an outfit works as a whole, I see it as an overall composition. Jewellery should therefore always complement the clothes, not be superimposed on them.   BB: In private, you don’t wear much jewellery or accessories, do you? Do you have a favourite piece anyway? Eva Lutz: Oh yes, I love bangles and chain bracelets and I wear my current favourites every day. And although I don’t wear all that much jewellery, a little bit of sparkle always brings out a woman’s beauty, after all (laughs).   BB: At the next Fashion Week, you’ll be presenting Minx’s fashions for spring and summer 2017. To ask the question that I’m sure we all keep on asking: How do you already know what people will be wearing next year – what colours and styles will be on trend!? Eva Lutz: As a designer, you’re very sensitive to changes, you just develop a feel for it somehow. I often find that people come up to me and tell me that I’m ahead of the times, I guess that’s probably the secret of designers in general (laughs). BB: What is the hallmark of the Minx label and Eva Lutz fashions? What makes your fashion so glamorous and popular on the red carpet? Hardly a week goes by in which we don’t get to admire one of your elegant gowns in magazines … Eva Lutz: Minx dresses are elegant and feminine. I always pay a great deal of attention to the shape in order to bring out the advantages of every woman. In addition, I think that the quality and feel of the fabrics are very important. If the wearer feels happy in the dress, she radiates this feeling. That’s what makes our dresses so popular.   BB: Do you have a particular type of woman in mind when you design your clothes? Eva Lutz: Not a particular type, no, but when I think of a woman, I know what she has to achieve every day. After all, a family, a job and other obligations demand a lot of us women in everyday life and at the same time, we have particular things we want from life.   BB: Do you already have a favourite piece from the new collection? Or is it difficult for you to choose? That’s what usually happens to us. Eva Lutz: I really can’t decide – I’ve got all sorts of favourites in the new collection! (laughs). From the sporty trousers, through the sexy jumpsuit to the feminine blouses – it’s just all beautiful.   BB: Which three pieces should be in every woman’s wardrobe? Eva Lutz: A pair of perfectly fitting jeans, a cool blouse and a classic black blazer.   BB: We’re already really looking forward to the new spring/summer collection from Minx, and particularly to seeing how you’ll be using our jewellery. What can we expect? Eva Lutz: You can expect a spectacular show with great models and beautifully feminine fashion. The highlight, of course, is always the presentation of the elegant evening gowns right at the end – whatever happens, you can prepare yourself for plenty going on. I’m already really looking forward to the show! BB: Many, many thanks for answering all our questions. We won’t keep you any longer! We’re already looking forward to seeing you at the end of June!   Would you like to come along to the Minx by Eva Lutz fashion show on 29 June 2016? Then you need to check out all our channels over the next few weeks. We’ll be giving away tickets plus two fantastic Minx outfits! Stay tuned!

Bright colours, little beads, sweet tassels and pretty borders remind us of hot holidays – we can almost feel the sand between our toes. Bring on the summer – whether it’s in Ibiza or by the lake round the corner! To go with the seductive Ibiza style, we’ve come up with a practical decorative idea for you again. This brightly coloured hanger can simply be an eye-catching decoration, or you can use it to display your jewellery in neat rows. As you can see, this little DIY project doesn’t need a massive amount of skill as a craftsman or lots of materials. Collect a few fairly thick branches from the forest (only use wood already lying on the ground, of course), or look in your DIY store. We’ve been able to buy a few nice pieces already painted white. You can create the Ibiza style by wrapping brightly coloured threads around the sticks. After this, you just need to join the individual sticks together with cord or ribbon and find a nice sunny spot for your beach decoration. With this brilliantly coloured bangle, you’ll shine as brightly as the sun. Wear it with a light-coloured tank top, cool shorts with tassels and you have the perfect Ibiza outfit. Tassels, feather pendants and a gemstone – this long necklace has everything you need for the perfect piece of jewellery to go with a long, simple summer dress. You’ll only find this beautiful item in our stores. A piece of folk art – this ultra-feminine and extravagant piece made from beads, fringes and tassels instantly conjures up the seductive Ibiza style. Summer, sun, Ibiza – that’s what you get from this brilliant set of six bracelets. Dazzling neon shades with antique gold-coloured details and brightly coloured tassels make this bracelet set a summer highlight. It looks beautiful on suntanned skin, adds a splash of colour to any outfit and is guaranteed to catch every glance.

Made with love – an original jewellery board for Mother’s Day

It will be here again in a few days – Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If that’s just come as a bit of a shock to you, pay attention for a moment  We’ve got another great DIY idea for you, unless you’re still working hard at following our lastset of instructions. The best thing about our new Mother’s Day DIY creation is that it looks much more complicated than it really is. Once again, you don’t need very much. But see for yourself: What you need for a jewellery board: a piece of wood (the best thing is to ask about left-over pieces in your DIY store) brightly coloured plastic film or paint for the base a template (heart, cloud, star – the design should be simple) pins hammer pencil scissors thread First of all, you need to make the piece of wood look pretty. Depending on what state it’s in, or what colour you’re looking for, you could varnish, paint or cover the wood. We decided to cover ours with matt, grey plastic. This is simply pulled wet or dry over the piece of wood and carefully wrapped around the corners. Now we need to concentrate on the design. For Mother’s Day, we have chosen a lovely heart, drawn it and cut it out. This is then used as a template to make sure that all the pins go in the right place. Then comes the part when Mum should probably not be within hearing range if you’re trying to keep this a secret.  Just tap in the pins all around the outline of the heart – we left about 2 cm between the pins. Now tie the beginning of your thread around one of the pins and start to wrap the thread around the other pins to create a net. There’s no right and wrong here. Just keep on doing it until you like the pattern you’ve created. And there you have a lovely jewellery board for Mum! Necklaces can now be hung from the nails and drop earrings or even stud earrings can be looped into the network of threads. Maybe you’ll even decorate the jewellery board with an attractive necklace as a Mother’s Day gift?! We’ve picked out a few pieces of jewellery for you: With this sweet little floral necklace, you’re not only giving a piece of jewellery! The 5 cat’s eye blossoms will bring a touch of optimism, perspective and concentration as well. At least, these are the properties that are attributed to this gemstone. Going for rose gold – these three pieces of jewellery go with each other perfectly. Delicate and yet striking – all the little stones in this necklace will sparkle beautifully in the sun. Would you like to give Mum an elegant good luck charm to go with your home-made jewellery holder? You’ll find this delicate necklace with four-leaf clover in our stores. This filigree real silver chain with gilded ornament is an absolute highlight. We love it! With rhinestones or without? If you can’t decide, just wear both together on this necklace.
