Create Your Invitation In A Sweet Oktoberfest-Style

Glitz and glam for the Oktoberfest! You’ve already got the perfect dirndl dress, or maybe even the leather shorts with a pretty blouse, but you’re still looking for the right accessories? With our romantic little heart necklaces, playful chokers and sugar-sweet handbags, your Oktoberfest look will be perfect – wherever you are! No spare cash to get to the actual Munich beer festival? Why not plan your own celebrations and relax with your closest friends, family and neighbours? At Bijou Brigitte, you’ll find the perfect accessories for your traditional costume. And we’ve also got a great idea for an original invitation card for you. Girls or boys – no-one will be able to turn down this invitation! Here are some „variations on a traditional costume“ J Naturally, you can choose your own shapes and colours if you like. What you’ll need: Red and patterned drawing paper (A4) – available in any craft shop You can download the template for the card HERE A paper doily (available from good supermarkets) Ribbon, e.g. from the.P.cookery Tools: pencil, ruler, scissors, hole punch, adhesive Then you can get going: Print the template out onto an A4 piece of white paper and cut it out. Then place the cut-out onto the red card and draw round the edges. You can also work without a template and choose your own size. Then fold the card on the left and right so that the ends meet in the middle 😉 Now you can cut the patterned paper to size and stick it onto the card. On our card, we only designed the front side. Now comes the most difficult part: Using the hole punch, carefully punch evenly spaced holes on the left and right. It’s a bit fiddly – but you’ll manage it Now stick the inner sides to the doily and fold the card shut. Now the last step: Pull the ribbon through as if you were tying shoelaces and knot it into a pretty bow. Naturally, you’ll need to address it personally too. You can write this in easily at the top. So there you have a candy-cute invitation which everyone’s bound to remember for a long time to come. The absolute classic! We’re in love with this delicate necklace with checked bows The antique silver-tone charm bracelet style is band on trend now – and not only for the Oktoberfest. Traditional symbols just as little hearts, pretzels, edelweiß and beer mugs are all part of it, of course. Blue and white is a must-have for anyone who loves traditional patterns! This special piece of jewellery looks great with dirndl dresses, but would go well with a blouse too. And we’ve got the matching earrings too Cheers! For those who prefer a subtler look: These sweet, antique silver-tone edelweiß stud earrings are so lovely – you could just imagine you were in the Alps Tell us whether you’re going to be celebrating this popular event in Germany, and if so, how! Are you going for a traditional or a modern look?

Vintage Dream – It’s the extended summer!

  Have you noticed it too? The days are very gradually getting shorter and the evening sun bathes everything in a golden light. The magnificent late summer is beginning. We’re enjoying the last weeks outside in the park or at open-air parties and delighting in the rich green of the trees before autumn comes. To go with this lovely time of year, there’s a new collection from Bijou Brigitte. Antique gold, facetted acrylic stones, blossom elements and rhinestones – we’ve affectionately called it „Vintage Dream“. Inspired by our favourite Instagram account @annaremarchuk, we’ve photographed our favourite pieces for you. How do you like our new collection? Frumpy? No way! Brooches have been bang on trend again for ages! Our design will make your dreams come true. It comes in antique gold-tone and is decorated with an enchanting blossom – a glittering highlight for your most glamorous outfit. This necklace is the fulfilment of a true vintage dream! Acrylic stones shimmering in gorgeous shades of grey and set in old gold-tone will enhance your most chic summer dress. Watch out! This bracelet could become a firm favourite. The facetted little stones just sparkle so prettily on the wrist … Stolen from Grandma’s jewellery case maybe … These earrings will add an elegant vintage style to your outfit. Wouldn’t you rather have a vintage-look letter instead of bills coming through the letter box? Our statement necklace is a flowery head-turner in sweet pink and delicate light blue.

Harmony, love and strength – Discover our new Karma Collection!

Far Eastern design, gemstones and delicate combined necklaces – our Karma collection is this season’s spiritual must-have! The beauty of gemstones has been treasured for centuries, because the jewellery made using them is not only decorative but is also associated with wellbeing and astrology. Their magic is based on the fact that every stone is said to give off particular vibrations. Rose quartz, jade or agate – which gemstone is your personal Magic Stone? Follow your gut instinct! Your intuition is the most important guide to choosing the right item of jewellery. If you feel particularly drawn by a stone, this could be the „right one“ for you. Maybe you’ll find your new talisman here? Rose quartz stands for sensitivity and brings love alive! Romantic gemstones beads blend with the Buddha to create a true declaration of love. The word „Buddha“ means „the awakened one“ and is a symbol of centring, meditation and enlightenment. The unique amethyst promotes Inspiration and discernment! This lovely, natural necklace can do wonderful things. The gemstone will purify your soul and free you from pointless, worrying thoughts. This enhances concentration and allows you to discover your inner peace. The Hand of Fatima will protect you from the „evil eye“. Lapis lazuli will strengthen your self-confidence and desire to be with other people! This delicate set of 3 stud earrings brings a particular magic with it, reducing depression, anxieties and negative feelings. These trendy little eye-catchers feature triskelions or triple spirals, symbolising the cycle of life, and will act as a talisman, protecting you against unhappiness. Delicate jade is a gemstone that will bring you balance and inner peace. Triply beautiful, and just as gorgeous alone – these silver-tone necklaces are real head-turners. Dark jade embodies harmony and balance and the Chinese lucky coin is used in feng shui as a way of increasing prosperity, wealth and happiness. This beautiful necklace made from little magnesite gemstone beads glows in enchanting turquoise and brings relaxation. Is your everyday life plagued with negative feelings and stress? These beads will help keep these at bay by creating a feeling of balance and calm. The tree of life gives additional support – this ancient symbol combines the three levels of heaven, earth and the underworld. They embody eternal life, the undying spirit and immortality. Tell us which gemstone strengthens your karma!

DIY: Create your own organiser to hold your most delicate jewellery

Hello delicate patterns, feminine ornaments and sparkling little stones! We’re welcoming our new collection, „Ornaments“, full of delicate necklaces, sparkling earrings and fine bracelets. Every single item of jewellery has an elaborate pendant decorated with abstract patterns, floral ornaments or stylised tendrils. A must-have for late summer this year! But you know the problem – these delicate pieces easily get tangled up in each other and are impossible to disentangle again. We have the remedy to allow you to enjoy our beautiful new collection to the full! This delicate jewellery organiser is really quick and easy to put together – just follow the instructions here! What you’ll need: A leather band in your favourite colour, from p-cookery.de for example A key ring or similar Scissors Chopsticks Edding marker pen in gold or silver This jewellery organiser is really quick and easy to conjure up! Use chopsticks with typical Asian decorations or take brightly coloured ribbons for hanging – let your imagination run wild! We decided on a very plain design which will show off the delicate jewellery with its lovely ornamental pendants well. Firstly, we painted the tips of the chopsticks in a metallic colour so that they would have time to dry out a bit before they are tied on. In the mean time, you can fix the leather band to the ring using what is called a „cow hitch“ knot. You’ll find these and lots more at the P.cookery. When the ends of the chopsticks are dry, you can start the „most difficult“ part of this DIY job. Knot the bands onto the chopsticks so that they hang straight. Then you only need to find a lovely place to hang your organiser and decorate it with your delicate jewellery. Et voilà!

Silver Star – when you long to get away

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!

Go Germany!

Are you getting excited already too? The European Championships start on 10 June and voilà: here’s our idea for perfect public viewing with your friends. Even if your garden’s not quite like the Park at Versailles, you can still have the perfect garden party with our Championship DIY. The most important thing to do as the game’s hotting up is to make sure you stay cool! With these German-look ice cubes, nothing can actually go wrong. You just need: a lemon raspberries blackberries an ice cube tray a bit of time for preparation To make sure you can enjoy ice-cold drinks during the game, you should start the preparations the day before. Cut a lemon into little pieces and place the pieces and other fruits individually into the ice cube compartments. Then top up with water and place in the freezer. After a few hours, the water will have frozen and your German-look ice cubes will be ready. Naturally, you can do the whole thing with other fruits in other colours. Our tip: A large glass carafe or jug is the best way to show off the little fan cubes! And you must have the right accessories at your fan party: such as these sweet little earrings. Cheers! Whether it’s as a bracelet, a belt, a necklace or a headband – show your fan spirit with a pretty Euro 2016 accessory and even the footballers‘ wives will be envious! Transform yourself into a flower fairy and make our wishes for Euro 2016 come true! It’s not a problem with this hair band. We think it really should be a part of every game! Don’t look away! Through these sunglasses, even a missed penalty will look rose-tinted! And you can eye up the cute guy next to you quite openly without him noticing at all! When the opposing team starts to look bedraggled, you can be cock-a-hoop. And these pretty drop earrings are the best way to show your fighting spirit. They’re bound to bring good luck too!
