Ippolita Fall/Winter 2012 Preview

On Tuesday evening I jumped on a train from DUMBO and dashed off to a preview of Ippolita‘s Fall 2012 collection. I don’t always show it here on the blog, but I wear Ippolita pieces quite a lot, especially my Lollipop Station Bangle and topaz hoops. I prefer my Ippolita pieces to almost all my other fine jewelry (exception: family heirlooms).

Fall 2012 is not available online yet, but expect it in major department stores in two weeks. There are quite a lot of photos in this post, so if you’re on a mobile device I’d skip unless you’re on Wifi.

Wicked, my favorite collection. Beautiful beautiful beautiful. The dark rhodium is so eye-catching. Last year this collection was done with blue topaz and this year it looks like it’s smoky topaz.

You see my ring and bracelet a lot, could you see me with some coordinating pieces to style?

The big hoops were a lot larger than I expected. I think I prefer the smaller size of my topaz #3 Hoops, which are my absolute favorite earrings ever.

It looks like more brands are picking up mixed media for fall! I love the dark chains– I expected this combination to be flipped.

I spy some labradorite! I’ve seen the Lollipop Station Bangle in labradorite before (currently available at Bergdorf Goodman).

I absolutely loved this necklace…

Surprise! It’s reversible.

Everyone representing Ippolita was so very nice, willing to answer all questions and even take photos– they were definitely prepared for bloggers!
