UNDERSTATEMENT AND SIMPLICITY ARE MORE SOPHISTICATED THAN HEAVY ORNAMENTATION, BECAUSE YOU‘VE GOT TO THINK YOUR WAY THROUGH THE PURE APPEAL OF THE FORM, TO THE ABSTRACTION OF BEAUTY.
NY,NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
No longer just for rock stars and surfer dudes, men of all stripes are experiencing a spring awakening and snapping up jewelry designer Catherine Zadeh’s (http://www.catherinezadeh.com) new collection of woven and macramé bracelets. From a preppy pop of color or a discretely tone-on-tone number tucked under a linen suit they are this season’s coolest accessory.
For over two decades independent designer Catherine Zadeh has been creating the most-sought after “jewelry for men who don’t wear jewelry.” The newly launched Macrame Collection is the answer to a guy’s quest to stand apart in an understated way.
Handmade in the USA by local artisans these subtly fashionable bracelets are woven from durable parachute cord in seven vibrant colors including ebony, dark chocolate, khaki, charcoal, red, orange and slate blue. The collection features 14 styles each enhanced by one of Catherine’s signature motifs handcrafted in sterling silver or 10kt gold. These include architectural equestrian geometric and nautical elements that added a masculine touch. Available at Barney’s and fine specialty retailers nationwide, suggested retail prices range from $265 to $1500.
The bracelets can be worn alone or stacked, mixed up with other styles or paired with a watch. In addition, the sturdy cord stands up to a guy’s active lifestyle: the color is fade-resistant so it can be worn in the shower or the ocean.
Adds Catherine: “I designed these bracelets for the guy who is ready to experiment with personal accessories but in a subtle way. He doesn’t want to make a bold statement with this jewelry - no skulls or heavy chains – rather a preppy casual style that is as refined and unique as he is.”
Born in Iran, schooled in Paris and finding a home in New York, Catherine M. Zadeh brings a certain flair to the art of jewelry making. Inspired by all of her past lives and multicultural influences, her designs showcase modernism at its best.
