Cocoa Vintage – easily one of the most iconic, yet elusive jewellery design labels in sweet sweet T&T- has just launched its limited edition summer collection. Designer Crystal Antoine has been revealing looks one by one, along with colour and pricing options on the Cocoa Vintage FaceBook Page. Crystal is out of the country until July 7th, so customers will have to wait til then to get access to the collection, but feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your orders in the meanwhile.
I’ve already placed mine, of course 😉 Can you guess which one I’m getting?
I love how she incorporates different quintessential Trinbagonian/Caribbean references in her work – coral, cocoa pods, steelpan, palm trees – but not done in the typical, or expected way. Also worth noting that acrylic jewellery is everything right now, so it’s exciting to be able to jump on a trend that actually has qualities unique to us in the starring role.
Get your hands on it stat, these babies won’t be hanging around for long.
