“You are so much sunshine to the square inch!” – Walt Whitman
As if Californians needed another reason to brag—the perennially chic Aurélie Bidermann has claimed the Golden State as the inspiration for her new spring jewelry collection.
Bidermann is a Parisienne, but right to recognize a kinship with her west coast counterparts: Both claim effortless style as a birthright, and this never-trying-too-hard sensibility is what’s most lovable in the new collection. A lariat necklace looks as at home over a tunic on the beach as it does dressed up with dark denim for a night out in Venice. A braided rope bracelet harkens back to sailing school, but looks grown up in gold.
Bidermann gives nods to California in her choice of names, too. Popular surf spots Lunada Bay and Hermosa Beach have their own namesake pieces.
So whether you’re in California or simply in a California state of mind, you now know where to look to dress the part.
