Be it costume or fine jewellery, there’s nothing we love more than decking ourselves out in some fresh bling, so the new capsule collection from Lebanese influencer Rita Dahdah and London-based line Lynyer has dropped just at the right time.
Unleashing our inner mermaid with its ocean-inspired theme, the collection features five gold-plated pieces that are perfect for summer and beyond. There’s a pair of asymmetric starfish earrings, seahorse earrings, earth & fire starfish earrings, a starfish choker and a beach waves choker and they are serious #stylegoals.
So, what inspired the duo to design such a stunning collection? “Singularity and symmetry found in nature is what inspired most of the previous Lynyer collections, so it was only natural to inspire from nature once again,” Rita told Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia. “Given that it’s summer, elements from marine life and the magic that surrounds us during a beach day is what set the mood for this collection.”
Bringing together moments from her travels to the Caribbean, the Maldives, Lebanon, South of France and Thailand together, the influencer explained the collaborative process, saying: “I had sent Leen [from Lynyer] a mood board of what I felt like working on with her, and she came up with the direction and the initial pieces. We then tweaked a couple of the ones she had already designed for this collection, and then came up with a couple more from scratch based on both of our input and vision.”
“Following that, the sketches were passed along to the artisans that Lynyer usually works with in Beirut and Jaipur. We then created a mood board for the shoot, selected the right photographer and HMUA, and agreed on how to style the pieces. We shared a common vision throughout and just followed our intuition.”
As for styling the pieces from the collection, she says each piece is perfect to wear from day-to-night, whether worn casually, semi-formally, during the daytime with a sundress or denim shorts, or for a night out with a tailored pair of pants and a statement off-the-shoulder or puff sleeve top.
We’ll be buying them all.
