Marni Spring 2012 Jewelry

Posted on December 20, 2011

Darlings, here’s your … we were going to say “sparkly for the day,” but this isn’t very sparkly, is it?  Instead it’s bold, bright, colorful and fun with an ever-so-slight mod influence underlying it all. So here’s your fun color for the day, we suppose. Feel free to pick out your imaginary pieces to be worn at imaginary events.

      My mother makes better jewelry…sorry, so not my style.

      Not my thing. Too mod and plastic-y. I *almost* like the necklaces.

      Pretty cute stuff, though some of it looks a bit homemade. I would definitely wear the second to last necklace, probably to dress up jeans and knit shirt.

      eek those are some butt ugly necklaces.  The only earrings I kind of like are the clear and yellow ones and that is because I like clear acrylic.

      “Slight” mod influence? They’re cute and VERY mod. I want to see Peggy and Joan rocking pieces like these come March! 

      • ecallaw

        I could see this somewhere on mad Men, but not on Peggy or Joan…maybe on one of Don’s conquests…

        • Gaby Ripoll

          I know. I just WISH they would rock the full mod. Joan did a little with that pink number with the pop scarf and gold brooch, but I doubt she’d wear one of these. I dunno.

      NOOOOOOOOOOO. Too 80s. TOO 80S!!! Soon they’ll all be wearing big disc earrings on posts–not even dangling earrings–big discs on POSTS. Stop the madness!

        I agree.  They could only be worse if they were NEON pink and black.

      UGH. Hideous, all of it.

    • Sang-young Shin

      They have a very Etsy-esque feel to them… I don’t think they’re worth the price Marni will be charging for.

      Wow, the ’60s and ’80s crashed into each other. I like some, though not all.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Not even all that fun. All I seem to think when I see them is Austin Powers.

      As an accessories buyer, I wouldn’t touch these with a ten foot pole. Dated looking, especially those circle earrings with the beads strung inside, and cheap looking materials.

      The pair on the model looks very heavy.  Of the other pieces, the only ones I might consider wearing are the 2nd pair of earrings, although I avoid the color orange in general.

      I am, however, intrigued by the collar that the model is wearing.  Is it attached to the top, or is it a separate piece?

    • Liz Tyson

      All these pieces look really cheap. Blech.

      The first necklace w/jeans & a white t-shirt?  Ooh!

        I agree, but I’d pass on the rest.

      Earrings are just too big. bold and plasticy…tacky.  (especially the ones modeled in first photo) Helen Roper would love these…

      Necklaces look juvenile.  Ribbon ties…really?  craft fair.  Put them on a chain and we’ll talk.

      They’re cute.  But you can find very similar vintage pieces on ebay, and my guess is that the price will be much, much, much lower….

    • Eric Scheirer Stott

      If this was being hawked in a booth at a craft fair I’d say it was rather nice- but these pieces are overpriced at the hundreds of dollars they’re asking.

      Looks like some fifth graders got hold of a recycle materials box and some pliers.

      “Ever so slight mod influence”?

      Flowers and bright geometrics……..doesn’t get any more mod than that. Pretty sure I owned a couple of those in junior high, back in the day.

    • oohsparkley!

      Nothing fresh here.

      Meh, I’ll pass.

      I like the shapes, but I can’t wear a single one of these colors without looking like a corpse.  No thanks.

      I feel like I could grab most of this stuff off Etsy, for a quarter of the price

        Yes, this. Or convince my friend to make them for $15 from materials at Michael’s.

      I like color but I’m not a fan of these. The gold pair with the red ring might be okay, but that’s about it.

      Meh. Looks cheap.

    • Judy_J

      The pieces have a nice ’60’s vibe.  The earrings especially look like some I would have worn in jr. high and high school.  I still love plastic jewelry.

    • Chipster TM

      Red, white and black ones – Pokeballs.

      • britta chan

        I’m glad that I wasn’t the only one to think that.

      SLIGHT mod influence? I have a box of earrings from junior high and high school that are very similar to these, except mine are made cheaply from cheap metal and plastic. I don’t know what I’d wear with these (or the ones I already have), but I like them.

        Definitely what Edina referred to as “licorice allsorts” earrings.

      I like some of it.

    • rynerman

      Well I like them, but I’m also a child of the 80s so I realize I was damaged in re:  accessories at an early age…

    • Kwei-lin Lum

      Love them!  Love MOD.

      Those flower cogs with contrasting rings?  I’d like them shrunken and made into cufflinks.  Thank you.  Only make sure the circle is properly centered.

    • Joe Coloff

      umm how did a poke’ball become an accessory, I’m trying to figure that out. Other than that I love the retro-fab look for the rest.

      i actually like this stuff, it looks like stuff my mother had in the 60s–if, of course, more modified for the market. right now, though [& i’m sure you dont wanna hear it], it looks like etsy if etsy were around in the 60s. & everyone on etsy had access to high end molding [etc & ect] equipment. that doesnt mean it’s bad, btw, on either side of the equation, just that it’s a style.

      Cheap and ugly.  Like crap you can get at the Dollar Store.  Oh, in 1971. And the sixth one down, on the left earring – at 11 o’clock – is that an ugly brown stain? Nope. I’d rather buy shit from the Dollar Store.

      I made these in the 1980s.

      Come on, folks, it’s Mod and Fun and Playful!!

    • bloodshothalfblind

      love.  seriously.  it’s tacky & weird & not for everyone.  in fact it’s really for only a handful of women, who can pull off quirky fashion trends.  but for those women, i fucking love this set.

    • Ruth Gottesman

      Love it.

    • Claudeth Forbin

      I like it all.
