We were so thrilled to show a selection of our pearl necklaces by pearl specialist Annette Warham at Ozwald Boateng’s fashion show at the Savoy Theatre. Celebrity models included Nicholas Pinnock, Goldie, Dizzee Rascal, Pa Salieu, and Kojey Radical. The highlight of the show was Idris Elba smoldering in a set of red pearls.

Vogue magazine described the pearls as standout in their coverage of the show. The beautiful sheen of Annette’s pearls worked so fabulously with the sumptuous fabrics of Ozwald’s new collection incorporating traditional African prints in silk and velvet.

“Instantly recognisable Ozwald Boateng signatures with twists thrown into the mix (pearl necklaces across all of the men’s looks were a standout)” - Vogue

This was more than a fashion show, this was a celebration, highlighting creativity and black excellence with live performances throughout. The ending with an uplifting choir and Ozwald himself dancing on stage amongst his models wearing his collections, celebrating his birthday on the same day as the show. 

Our curator Jade attended the show with Annette, both wearing pearls of course!

We have our very own Jasper modeling our pearl collection in the front window. The blues and greens layered together look so majestic, and is encouraging men to wear more jewellery.
