Pamela Love Fall 2012: The Jewelry Factory

Walking into Pamela Love's dimly lit presentation at MADE, it was clear the designer was going for a grittier vibe than seasons past: A copper metal structure which resembled part of a boiler room or furnace served as a backdrop, emitting ominous puffs of smoke, while the models, dressed in workwear-inspired gear, faces smudged with "dirt" stood on a podium staring steely-eyed at the audience. But not even the models' dirty faces nor the dark setting could dim Love's strong, sculptural jewelry collection, which subtly referenced industrial beams, and factory architecture. Of course, it wouldn't be a Pamela Love collection without a generous helping of earthy elements like turquoise stones and tribal-inspired patterns hammered into segments of of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

And while the collection may have been inspired by a gritty, industrial factory, there's no doubt it will be whole-heartedly embraced by Manhattan's pretty young things.
