Some of the most striking jewelry to walk the runway at New York Fashion Week came courtesy of Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader, cofounders of NYC-based boutique-jewelry brand Lady Grey Jewelry.
The pair collaborated with veteran New York designer Jill Stuart to create a collection of handmade gold wire and box-chain pieces, a few of which encased the bodice.
The delicate, yellow gold–toned pieces included wiry headbands (which looked absolutely regal in their simplicity); an arm cuff anchored by chain to bangles sitting lower on the arm; double-strand wire necklaces; and the pièce de résistance: a piece worn on the chest that effectively outlined the shape of a classic bustier on the models.

On Lady Grey Jewelry’s Instagram page, the designers wrote: “What an incredible honor to have collaborated with @jillstuart for her SS18 Collection (and 25th anniversary!) runway show. Jill is an absolute icon and all around amazing woman, we are beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her this season.”
Brava to matches made in fashion heaven!
