Fall Trend Report: Black is the "New" Black


 Yes, fashion friends, nothing makes me happier to report than black is back in a big way for fall 2013!  Now, many of you know how much I love to wear black (in my book it's never out of style) - our beloved black is slimming, versatile, timeless and creates the perfect back drop for jewelry. When I saw all the beautiful head to toe black collections on the runways for fall by designers like Givenchy, Saint Laurent, and Elle Saab (just to name a few) it was apparent that black is the "new" black.  My newest Colleen Lopez apparel and jewelry collections are filled with gorgeous jet black pieces (along with tons of fabulous colors, too!) - Here's a sneak peek at a few of My Favorite Things for fall...

My  Colleen Lopez "Hot Date" Sweater Dress is both classy and sexy and will add instant va va voom to your wardrobe!  The fit is divine and the soft comfortable sweater knit will have you wearing this for day (with a jacket or cardi) and right into the evening for shoulder baring wow!  Note:  this dress will get you noticed so prepare yourself for lots of compliments!
For a touch of stunning sparkle and color, may I introduce you to the new darling of the gem world:  Black Spinel!  Designers are smitten with this sparkling, mysterious stone and it's fast becoming a must have for every jewelry maven's wardrobe!  Add my  Colleen Lopez Turquoise and Black Spinel Pendant and matching Colleen Lopez 6.25ct Spinel Inside/Out Hoop Earrings for black diamond-like sparkle that will add knock out style and classic elegance to any outfit.
 Get ready to take center stage in my  Colleen Lopez "Take the Spotlight" Sequin Cardigan.  This lovely sweater is covered in tiny silver sequins that look like pave diamonds!  Worn with a pencil skirt, jeans or a LBD, this dazzling versatile jacket will have you shining bright all season long!  When it comes to the perfect finishing touch - feast your eyes on my new Colleen Lopez 8-9mm Cultured Pearl and Spinel Necklace and matching Colleen Lopez Cultured Pearl and Hematite Bracelet.  Black pearls are stunningly luminous and this killer combo will be your new favorite duet to wear for both work and play!
The chicest way to wear black this season is by choosing leather!  My  Colleen Lopez "VIP" Faux Leather Dress is a real show stopper.  I love the raglan sleeve and the ponte knit back for the perfect fit and comfort.  Don't forget to reserve a place in your wardrobe for black and white this fall - this strong twosome will be getting major play on the fashion scene and my new Colleen Lopez 5.46ct Tourmalinated Quartz and Multigemstone Sterling Silver Ring is an irresistible choice for black and white sparkle.  Finally, we want to keep you on time (or looking fashionably late) and there's no better way to do it than by adding my Colleen Lopez "Madison Ave" Watch to finish things off - there will be nothing basic about your all black look when you add this stunner.
I hope I've inspired you to add a little black magic to your fall wardrobe.  Be sure to tune in Wed. August 14th at 2:00 PM and 10:00 PM ET to see these and more black beauties along with all of my newest Favorite Things!

The Diamond Riviére Necklace

One of the most captivating diamond necklace designs of ALL time is coming to HSN......The Herkimer "Diamond" Riviére Necklace.  Named for the French word "River" - the flowing, graduated River of Diamonds around the neck is the quintessential look of classic elegance.   

Princess Grace of Monaco loved to wear a single strand of diamonds or pearls around her neck.  It was a signature look for the American Princess and she was ravishing in her Riviére Diamond Necklace.  In the film "To Catch a Thief" with Cary Grant, the lovely Grace Kelly was fascinated with diamonds and the allure of being a jewel thief.

Dating back to the early 1700's, one of the most famous Riviére Necklaces was owned by England's ruler, Queen Mary who gifted the necklace to her grand daughter, Princess Margaret Rose. This stunner was auctioned off at Christie's recently with an estimated value of $1.8 Million.



For her Diamond Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth chose to wear a magnificent Diamond Riviére necklace - her sister, the late Princess Margaret, was  photographed years prior wearing this beautiful family treasure (can you imagine how much fun it would be playing in the royal jewelry box?!).



The diamond Riviére (in America, it's  known as the Diamond Tennis necklace) is a favorite of today's Hollywood royalty.  The simple beauty and elegance of this sophisticated style is truly timeless.


I hope you can join us on the evening of Tuesday, July 22nd when we bring you Designer Deb Guyot's own version of this stunning design.  At midnight we will debut the first ever Herkimer "Diamond" Regal Princess Necklace.....80 carats of stunning Herkimer "diamonds" for a River of Herkimers around your neck - Now we can all feel like a princess!
