Leather, with its guaranteed sexy of skin on skin, not to mention its intoxicating smell, is all that + more with piece‘s ‘Lyla‘. Hand painted hand-made strips of 100% leather + custom-cut sequin sheets, become intricate shapes that resemble flowers + leaves to adorn your neck. A 1 ½’’ wide adjustable extension at the back neck closure, with 4 extra rows of hook + eye facets to fit each neck size of moldable felt + base fabric lining, set the stage for this dark beauty. Just look at the elaborate flowers carried all the way to the back of this neck accessory!
Sequin sheets are cut, + arranged in a front-to-back sequence, creating a mix of shine + matte textures on each delicately sewn flower, with heightened detail + sparkle created by crystal studs + painted beads. Of course, placing ‘Lyla’ over some evening confection of sorts is too predictable but if you paired it with a more lax look, below is the kind of magic that could be achieved.
