Great book Jeremy! Love the overall look.
I like the conch and gold bracelet. Now that's a signature look.
As to the pearl necklace, I like both the bandolere style and the down the back style. My favorite is the triple strand down the back. And maybe we should remember that women do wear outrageous designs at these events so sitting pretty to keep from rubbing the pearls probably isn't a nonstarter. It looks fabulous!
Love it all! Nice to see the Monili pieces, too. Correction? The queen conch pearls in the ring are red, which are more rare than the pink. Hisano gets her name out there - awesome. You are surrounded by beautiful talented women. What a lucky guy!!!
I think, is this only a draft? It came over my computer as very grayed down, and cold. Will this be targeting Christmas? The pearls don't show at their best, so it must be how it is lit, with grayed overtones, unless it's just how my computer presented them.
My compliments..Great book Jeremy!
The different and creative ways to wear the pearls we love is one of my favorite subjects! Here are a few from the KOJIMA vault.
First a lovely dressless back shot of some of our past designs.
Second a view of the 100" "GRACE" rope around my waist, before the Ruckus party in July.
Third a candid shot of my long rope of Cook Island baroques worn as a wrapped bracelet.
Fourth my nephew Elias using his mothers rope as a necklace/chew toy!
(I just had to include this last one!)
Happy Labor day weekend!
I had been meaning to check in on this thread for days...
thanks ladies.. you just made my beautiful day even better!
There are more where these came from, still digging around in the archives!
Did anyone else have the grayed, overcast problem with transmission of the look-book? Half of the photos had color, and the middle section grays? All of Kojima's pearl photo-postings are vibrant. I'm too new at computers to know what to do or even if there's anything to correct. I guess it's a bit off-topic, sorry. All of the artists on this site have such gorgeous work, I felt like candy had been yanked out of my mouth when I couldn't see the colors in the mid-section of the photo look-book.
Oh, well, not important in the big scheme of things.
