Pearl col­lec­tion to pop your eyes

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

NED­LANDS de­signer Poppy Lis­si­man and At­las Pearls have col­lab­o­rated on a new col­lec­tion to make pearls more ac­ces­si­ble.

Ms Lis­si­man said her aim was to keep the col­lec­tion, Eye See You, rel­e­vant and at an ap­pro­pri­ate price point.

The South Sea pearl pieces in­clude the 27-year-old’s trade­mark eye mo­tif and her rein­ven­tion of the pearl strand that was part of her WA Fash­ion Awards Fine De­tails prize in March.

Part pro­ceeds from sales will go to Fash­ion Coun­cil WA.

“It’s been amaz­ing work­ing with the At­las jew­ellery de­sign­ers and see­ing what they’re able to achieve,” Ms Lis­si­man said. “I didn’t know much about pearls… it’s such a labour of love be­cause many years are spent nur­tur­ing the pearls to get them to that point where you can sell it.”

At­las Pearls chief ex­ec­u­tive Pierre Fal­lourd said the new col­lec­tion demon­strated that pearls could be play­ful and ver­sa­tile.

He said the col­lec­tion was a very fresh ap­proach for At­las that broke away from their nor­mal de­signs, which were quite tra­di­tional. The col­lec­tion will be launched at At­las Pearls in Clare­mont on Fri­day as part of Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val. To win two tick­ets to the VIP launch, visit the At­las Pearls and Per­fumes Face­book page.
