Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
Pamela Roskin, former archivist for Ralph Lauren, has launched her first jewelry line, Nineteen Seventy-Four (http://www.nineteenseventy-four.com). Nineteen Seventy-Four stands for luxury, craftsmanship and beauty and showcases chic, timeless pieces to wear year after year.
Drawing inspiration from the designer’s passion for textiles, architecture, fashion and history, the 60-piece line introduces casually graceful styles that embrace the classic philosophy of the brand. Necklaces and pendants, rings, earrings and bracelets are presented in sterling silver with splashes of 18k gold and restrained use of gemstones that add to the story of the piece, all crafted in Indonesia.
Signature pieces include a Crocodile textured cuff, band ring and earrings.
“There is nothing that says luxury like crocodile accessories,” remarked Roskin. “These are pieces for the woman who is chic but not trendy, who knows how to dress with simplicity and distinction.”
Roskin’s line is designed by her in Brooklyn, NY and produced by a team of traditional silversmiths in Bali. The line is based on the principles Roskin learned at Ralph Lauren: classics never go out of style, inherently chic is not the same as trend, and things that are well made will always have value.
Nineteen Seventy-Four is available at nineteenseventy-four.com and through select retailers. Prices range from $60.00 to $700.00.
Prior to working for Ralph Lauren, Roskin received her master’s degree in Fashion and Textile History from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she curated a show for the Museum at F.I.T. on the 20th century milliner, Lilly Daché. Roskin takes a lot of cues from the French accessories designer. "Daché was a genius at bringing out every woman’s inner elegance with her creations," said Roskin.
Of Nineteen Seventy-Four, Roskin noted, “The history of an object tells a story that I find fascinating. I am drawn to antique jewelry and vintage fashion that remains wearable today. That is how I have designed Nineteen Seventy-Four, as a collection with enduring appeal. This is jewelry made to last, with an agelessness that will transcend fashion.”
