Mario Testino + CDP = VOGUE

The new issue of VOGUE is out and to mark their 100th year anniversary they have published this special issue that celebrates the faces and fashions of a century.
Why do we feel you should take a good look at this magazine?
Perhaps it is because Coleman Douglas Pearl jewellery is featured in the Mario Testino photoshoot!

Within the story ‘As Time Goes By’ styled by Lucinda Chambers, our large ‘Joy of Life’ freshwater pearl earrings and our double strand freshwater pearl necklace are featured.

This is not the first time that Mario Testino has used our pearl jewellery in his work, highlighting the fact that ‘…pearls are always appropriate’ – Jacqueline Kennedy.

In 2001 Testino photographed the main fashion story for Vogue’s 95th year anniversary issue, where yet again our pearl jewellery was featured, but this time in a Georgian styled shoot.

In the image on the left you can see our multi-strand white freshwater pearl bracelet with oval centerpiece inspired by a family heirloom.

Now if you are beginning to think that pearls are just for classic shots then let me prove you wrong.
Here is the very first appearance of CDPearls in Vogue also styled by Lucinda Chambers and shot by Mario Testino – where the model is looking very edgy …still think pearls are just for the ‘Twin-set and Pearl’ look?!

Pearls are a mainstay and immune to the vagaries of fashion’ – Chrissie Douglas
