LOS ANGELES - At first blush, the fossil laboratory at the George C. Page Museum might seem like a strange place to introduce a new fine jewelry line, but after seeing the fossil-like earrings, scarab-beetle clutches and shell-like webbed rings that make up the new Flowen Specimens collection, it's hard to think of a more appropriate place in the entire city than a mammoth bone's toss away from the bubbling fossil repository known as the La Brea Tar Pits.
This spring sees the return of gingham, the trend that took center stage on the runways. Designers Diane von Furstenberg, Tsumori Chisato and Temperley mixed gingham with other prints such as florals and plaids to create a bold look. Gingham went sexy secretary at Altuzarra with prim and proper shirt-dresses and skirt suits made provocative with plunging necklines and high slits. A retro French Riviera look also popped up in several collections including Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, and Diane von Furstenberg. It's a great alternative to spring's other classic, florals. So it's time to "check" it out!
