Designer Selects | Vol. 12
For Spanish jewelry designer Adriana Manso, plastic is fun. We absolutely agree—Manso’s colorful, eponymous line recalls the candy jewels we donned as kids in the ’90s. If you haven’t seen these babies yet, you’ll soon start to notice them everywhere as Manso’s baubles are a fave among celebrities like Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa. La Manso’s brand ethos says: “We want to be at your cocktails, in the supermarket queue, sweating in the gym, or swimming in the pool. We promise to be the center of attention, at any time and in any situation. Slide us on your fingers and stop counting the carats of your rings, because plastic is fantastic.” You got it, La Manso!

ALIX OF BOHEMIA
The Bohemians of Paris and the Bloomsbury Group were designer Alix Verley-Pietrafesa’s initial inspiration when she began her clothing line more than ten years ago. With her team in New York, Verley-Pietrafesa continues to translate the free-spirited perspective of these intellectual groups into pieces that feel like treasured vintage finds.
