Shopping For: Mother of Pearl

- By Teresa Greenfeld -

Serpui Marie Julianna Mother of Pearl Clutch

 

Its luminosity dream-like and almost haunting, there is perhaps nothing more ethereal in fashion than mother of pearl.  I’m always reminded of The Childlike Empress from The Neverending Story whenever I think of it.

As it’s found most often in sea shells, the summer natually lends itself as the season for mother of pearl accessories.  This season in particular, we’ve seen a palpable mother of pearl resurgence, most notably seen in Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2012 “Under the Sea” themed collection.  Lagerfeld showed mother of pearl influences in shimmering jackets, accessories  and even in makeup.
