Nathalie Colin, 239 pp., publ. by Abrams, New York, 2013. US$55.00
Nathalie Cohn, creative director of Swarovski, shows the various ways jewelry can be worn to suit any occasion or setting: the workplace, cocktail hour, dining out, a night out, travel, or a wedding. Playful and irreverent, the book offers practical advice on adding touches of attitude, elegance, and personality to cultivate a highly personalized look. Each accessory’s color, texture, and shape can be used to achieve a “rich dialogue between jewelry, garment, and body.” Numerous images featuring Swarovski pieces offer strategy and inspiration for every woman who wears contemporary jewelry.
