Holst + Lee coming to a neck near youNatalie Holst and Rochelle Lee make up the bad ass fashion collaboration HOLST + LEE. After moving to New York from the South they met late night steez--we're thinking music and booze might have been involved--and from there, a strong friendship and unique artistic outlet flourished. Drawing inspiration from a range of people, places, culture and materials, the ladies of Holst + Lee hope to give back the same creative energy to the community. The Holst + Lee 2012 collection features lots of rope, beads and other materials beautifully smashed together in what comes out looking like a colorful masterpiece. The pair's southern roots can be felt in the pieces but with New York City overtones and each piece is handmade and closes with a magnetic clasp. But not to worry the magnet holds up to 30 pounds, so your Holst + Lee isn't going anywhere. See more from the Holst + Lee 2012 collection below.

Apfel's jewelry line debuted this week and it’s replete with Apfel’s mandate: bigger is better. Apfel has decades of experience to reference, and her signature is arms dressed up with bangles to her elbows, layers of jawbreaker pendants and those massive, irreverent spectacles. As far as the collection, the original designs look like they were pulled from the Earth--chunky combinations of resins, wood, and other odd embellishments. It’s also peppered with her own vintage pieces. “As a child I watched every day as my very chic ‘maman’ worshipped at the altar of the Accessory. Like a shaman stylist, she worked her magic, transforming her workaday black dress into a smashing cocktail outfit,” she said in a statement on the collection.
