You may remember Alison Lou as the fine jewelry house behind those emoji-themed pieces that were instant celeb faves. Well, the New York-based brand has just released its latest collab collection that may be even more whimsical and playful than the first. The partnership is an unexpected one, but in the best way possible — Alison Lou teamed up with the NoLita fast-casual Italian restaurant, The Sosta, to create the MAMA MIA collection.
Alison Chemla, the creative brains behind Alison Lou, is a girl after our own hearts with this carb-loving collection. Chemla was inspired by a trip to Italy and the different forms of pasta around her. “As I do with everything, I noticed their unique shapes, and began to picture how they would look as earrings!” says Chemla.
Crafted from 14K gold, the pieces feature Alison Lou’s signature hand-painted enamel work and a selection of colorful gemstones on pasta shapes such as farfalle, penne, lasagna, and more.
In addition to pasta shapes, there are pieces that celebrate other aspects of everyone’s favorite comfort cuisine, like Basil and Tomato Studs ($245 each) and minimal Salt and Pepper Bracelets ($580 each). The collection just launched earlier this month with prices starting at $150 and going up to $6,500. It’s safe to say that this is the most stylish way to carbo-load.
