Maria Francesca Pepe’s Capsule Collection for Urban Outfitters

If you swoon over the jewelry worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Cheryl Cole, and RiRi, you’re in luck, as London-based designer Maria Francesca Pepe has just created a capsule collection for one of our favourite haunts on the high-street, Urban Outfitters.

Celebrity and Industry Recognition

The fact that the Italian born designer’s pieces have already been pictured on so many high profile celebrities is a sure sign that she’s set for designer stardom. Amongst her celebrity followers is Lady Gaga, who ordered a custom tiara from Maria for her appearance on Saturday Night Live. Celebrity fans aside, the Master’s Graduate from London’s Central Saint Martins has also received industry recognition, which includes awards from New Gen and Vogue Talents.

The Urban Outfitters Collection

Urban Outfitters isn’t her first high profile commission as she’s also previously collaborated with Roksanda Illincic and Victoria’s Secret. Can this lady get any cooler? Her Urban collection is themed around her usual gothic taste and includes all the ropes, crosses, and spikes your heart could desire. It’s set to hit stores this week, and some of the pieces are already available to buy at Urban Outfitters online. The double spike and the over spike rings (below) are already on our lust list.

Now that we’re in an edgy jewellery mood, we thought that we’d introduce you to, a label which is already a favourite amongst insiders. Their quirky pieces have been receiving an abundance of press attention, and its celebrity followers already include Rita Ora, Peaches Geldof, Lindsay Lohan, and Georgia Jagger. Galibardy’s intergalactic themed jewellery also looks a lot more expensive than it actually is — you can bag one of their necklaces for just £14. Check out a few of our favorites below.
