And that’s part of what makes Bonjour Senorita, the spring/summer 2017 collection that Tous launched at the show, so refreshing. This season, the Barcelona, Spain–based brand looked to the colorful streets of Havana for inspiration while adding a pop of Parisian chic here and there, for jewels that are all about optimism, joie de vivre, and the frivolity one needs to indulge in now and again. In other words, the jewelry equivalent of a burst of confetti. Or a fruity, frothy cocktail garnished with a gazillion paper umbrellas.
But it’s not all bubble gum, hearts, and rainbows. As the face of the brand, Gwyneth Paltrow lends Tous plenty of style cred, and her contract with Tous was recently renewed for another two years. The Goop founder and actress has helped to cast Tous’ designs in a more sophisticated light, and that includes the ubiquitous teddy bear motif that has served as the brand’s signature since 1985. See how it takes a downright glamorous turn in this little film.
So turn off the news and surrender yourself to the irresistible charm—and punch-drunk levity—of Bonjour Senorita with my top picks from the collection highlighted below.
