When Grazia Daily heard Daisy Lowe was launching her own jewellery collection, we just had to go and meet her.
Even more beautiful in real life than in photos (yes, really) Lowe is wearing black silk Louis Vuitton tuxedo pants - ‘they’re old’ - which are loose but tight at the ankle; kind of balloony, basically perfect, with some sexy black strappy shoes - ‘Sophia Kokosolaki’ - and a gorgeous, sleeveless white shirt that looks more like a waistcoat - ‘Sharon Wauchob’.
This girl has good taste.
And glinting away at her neck and her lobes and her wrist; against that perfect creamy skin and tangled up in her black tousled hair, are beautiful green and blue crystals shaped in stars and crescent moons on dark silver chains. The jewellery Daisy has designed for Swarovski CRYSTALLISED.
‘It’s the first time I’ve put my name to anything,’ she says proudly ‘I came into this store and I just fell in love with the whole concept of designing my own jewellery..’
Not surprisingly, the model, dj, designer says ‘I really like being creative… I paint all the time… I’m learning how to use a sewing machine, altering dresses….I make music…and I write… And modelling; you act in front of a camera.’
It seems Swarovski CRYSTALLISED picked the perfect designer to collaborate with ‘I was never going to do something without crystals’ says Lowe, who was reading a book about Goddesses and the healing power of crystals when the collaboration was first proposed to her.
She gazes out from beneath her fringe with huge green eyes, and says slightly dreamily ‘I believe in the power of the goddess and the female form’ and it’s hard not to think well, with a figure like Daisy’s, you would, wouldn’t you?
The shapes of those Swarovski crystals are symbolic ‘we are all a five-pointed star when we stretch out – four limbs and our head’ And the moon ‘is such a feminine symbol – we’re connected to the moon in our cycles… And a full moon is party time - when you’re crazy. I’m into the magic of things…’.
Daisy will be making a special appearance to launch her jewellery collection in collaboration with Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED at the Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED store, 24 Great Marlborough Street, London, today from 5-7pm.
