One of the places I always visit while in New York City is the Atelier Minyon jewelry store on Spring Street. I miss walking in there and watching the designer, Alp Sagnak, work on pieces right in front of you on the showroom floor. It is very exciting to see.
Of course the new pieces from Atelier Minyon are gorgeous! Why wouldn’t they be. Jewelry designer Alp Sagnak always makes really cool and interesting jewelry. I follow their Facebook page for updates because I love looking at what he is going to come up with next. His imagination and creativity know no bounds, no limits. I am in love with the new pieces that I saw, but there were a few that really caught my eye. I am in love with the mix of gold with rough edges and rough cut diamonds. It kind of reminds me of a battle between good and evil. Anyway, check out the pieces and tell me what you think. Photo from Atelier Minyon.
Even though I was able to view quite a few pieces, here are my favorites:
18K Yellow Gold Angel Wing Earrings with Diamonds
18K Yellow Gold and Oxidized Silver Winged Angel Necklace with 14K Rose Gold Chain
18K and Oxidized Silver Owl Cuff with Diamonds and Garnets
While in New York for fashion week, I visited Atelier Minyon and they wowed the heck out of me with their fluorescent diamonds. I had never seen fluorescent diamonds before. I mean really…who knew diamonds could glow in the dark. Well Atelier Minyon jewelry designer Alp Sagnak was hip to it, and made gorgeous cuffs, rings, and necklaces with the diamonds embedded in floral shapes. Since the piece are one of a kind, whoever owns these will be extra special. These are pieces I am truly lusting after.
As usual, when I was in New York for fashion week, I stopped by Atelier Minyon to check out the new jewelry collection. Every single time I visit them, I am wowed and astounded by the beauty of the pieces. Bright jeweled rings, gorgeous diamond necklaces and fanciful animal inspired pieces continue to amaze. The Turkish inspired jewelry would really give your jewelry collection a Byzantine edge. Check out Atelier Minyon if you happen to be in New York.
Atelier Minyon is located at 155 Spring Street, New York, NY 10012.
On Fashions Night Out, before the cops shut down Spring Street, I headed to Atelier Minyon with my good pal Najee Wilson. I introduced him to my friends at the jewelry store. If you follow this blog, you know that I try to visit Atelier Minyon every time I go to New York. The jewelry Alp Sagnak designs is so fantastical, because of the fantasy, Turkish, and rock and roll influences that grace the jewelry. These are a few of the new pieces I saw that night. Some of these pieces are one of a kind. The snake ring in the middle is my favorite because it is so unexpected and you can wear it on two fingers. If you are interested in jewelry from Atelier Minyon, check out the website.
Today’s post is about the lovely jewelry at Atelier Minyon. By the way, sorry for the delay in posting. The day I was supposed to come back from NYC, my flight was delayed. I was also really drained from the fashion week experience. I have been doing so much laundry and homework that my mind is going crazy. Because of that I hope you don’t mind if I skip reporting on London Fashion Week, which sucks because London usually has the most fun fashions. I will start covering Fashion Week again when Milan starts later in the week and finish with Paris.
OK!!! So enough about that and more about Atelier Minyon. I love the people at Atelier Minyon because they are always so nice, and the jewelry is always so interesting, remember the bone bracelet from last September. Totally cool right?!?!? Yup it is.
When I went to NYC for fashion week, one of the showrooms I visited was the Atelier Minyon showroom in the SoHo. If you know me, you know that I don’t really wear jewelry, but the jewelry there was amazing. I could see myself wearing some the of rings and necklaces. Thanks Erin for showing me around.
Everything is inspired by Turkey and Turkish culture. The designer is Turkish too. Some of the pieces feature animals, and others feature actual Turkish buildings and columns. The pieces range in price from $80 to thousands of dollars. Most pieces are not only handmade, but one of a kind. My favorite piece was the bracelet molded from opossum bones and studded with upside jewels. Very cool.
Check out Atelier Minyon here and on Twitter.
I have some great posts for you that probably won’t be made until Friday, unless I have some time tonight, because I will be driving back to Columbia after the Isaac Mizrahi show, instead of flying back to help my aunt out with her move. I went to some great showrooms while I was here. I can’t wait to show you some of the jewelry from Atelier Minyon.
I met some designers from my school. Hopefully they will send me some of their information, so I can show you their work. I also got some pictures from new designer Washington Roberts and some video from the Tibi show, although that video might be a little bright.
Also can we talk about how I saw Kanye West, Jason Sudeikis, and Cynthia Rowley walking around NYC the other day. I even nodded and Kanye and he actually said “What’s Up!” Can you talk about starstruck. I have also seen Robbie Meyers from Elle, Nina Garcia-who makes a pretty pregnant women, the blogger from WhereDidYouGetThat, and I also saw this famous fashion journalist whose name escapes me:( .
