Statement jewellery is in, and NIKAO has taken it one step forward with jewellery that makes a statement. Founded by British jewellery designer Lisa-Marie Carter, the brand is offers “high end fashion jewellery to exude a look of distinctive opulence.” The designs take root and are inspired by Carter’s background, as well as female empowerment, idealised to create a reaction for the wearer. NIKAO is designed with the fearless and vivacious woman in mind as the NIKAO woman is someone who isn’t afraid to speak out, and be strong.
NIKAO’s AW17 collection entitled Chapter 5: Balance has just dropped and we are loving the pieces that are part of the collection. The collection is inspired by finding balance in life, and each piece features spirit level vials, the collection including earrings, rings, a choker, necklace and anklet, each engraved with the worlds ‘FIND YOUR BALANCE’. The pieces are stunning and eye-catching, with pantone’s colour of the year, green, running throughout the collection.
NIKAO has also set up a #RULEWRITERS project, aiming to empower woman by figure heading successful women with stories that motivate and inspire others. The AW17 collection look book is modelled by these figures which include Presenter & DJ Maya Jama, Model and Stylist Leah Abbott and Liv Little – founder of Gal Dem.
The new Balance collection is available to pre-order from NIKAO’s website. Whilst you’re there make sure to check out the interviews with each of the women who are part of the #RULEWRITERS project, because the stories they share and visions they create are truly foundational.
