Wedding news: summer style tips from Eclectic Mix
The new range from Eclectic-Mix is ideal for spring/summer 2012 weddings. It is an exciting time for the innovative brand, created by Rebecca Scott to bring natural beauty and style to special occasion looks. As well as expanding into bridal jewellery, 2012 also sees the launch of the new website at www.eclectic-mix.com, showcasing gorgeous summer looks.
Rebecca is an experienced and innovative jewellery designer. Her time with luxury brands including Garrard’s, Boodles and Links of London gave her experience with quality materials. But it was through her love and passion for collecting antique buttons and buckles that Eclectic-Mix was born.
The first collection, Tresse, features beautiful natural materials and neutral colours to make statement pieces. Feminine with soft hues and beach-inspired elements, it was inevitable that the range would be developed into beautiful bridal jewellery and accessories with a twist.
The Tresse bridal collection is available in two colours – ivory and cream. A bespoke service is available on request for brides who want specific colours or fabrics to match their wedding theme, or perhaps to complement an antique piece of jewellery or family heirloom.
“I’ve always loved collecting and refurbishing antique jewellery,” Rebecca says. “The ready-to-wear collection evolved from that, inspired by the beautiful English coastline.”
In fact, pieces from the Tresse collection were actually made on Bournemouth beach and the Dorset area in particular is one that has inspired Rebecca over the years. Brides who love to buy British will adore the UK-inspired Eclectic-Mix. “Wherever possible I like to source all materials as locally as possible,” Rebecca says. “For my next collection I will be working with a crafts team in Devon along with a local fabric mill in Lancashire.”
Do you really want your wedding jewellery to sit in a box after the big day? Convertible pieces from Eclectic-Mix can be used for special occasions for years to come. The tie clasps mean you can convert belts into bracelets, layered for Kate Moss-style boho chic. Or use the bracelets as eye-catching hairbands, or convert a delicate necklace into an on-trend headband a la Kim Kardashian.
“The range is classic but with a modern twist,” says Rebecca. “Each piece can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion or venue.”
So what next for Eclectic-Mix? The clue is in the company name. “The definition of ‘eclectic’ is ideas, styles and tastes taken from a diverse range of sources and is the company core value when designing and creating new collection.,” Rebecca says. “You will therefore see some new influences and ways of bridal jewellery being created and from a wide array of materials, offering brides new and exciting designs with a little something more alternative.”
