A Dragonfly in Italian Vogue

It seems that butterflies, bees, dragonflies & ladybugs are all en vogue recently, and I mean literally found in Italy’s November Vogue Issue.  I took some shots of the magazine while we were playing in our favorite bookstore, check out the accessories department.


“In a flap of wings. Insects have studded the entire history of jewelry, starting from the turquoise beetles in ancient Egypt. The top Parisian maisons have always privileged the most romantic and porte-bonheur forms: butterflies and ladybugs, almost omnipresent from the Fifties onwards.
 And now that bug mania is back on the Fall/Winter catwalks of Lanvin, Ungaro and Cavalli, jewel designers are rediscovering the most unusual little animals: like in the collections of Delfina Delettrez, swarming with ants and grasshoppers, or Wallace Chan, populated with cicadas, a zen symbol in China.”
