Around these parts, East vs. West is the classic argument. While we're obviously partial to the right coast, we're starting to see that we don't always need to choose sides. Take, for example, Rebecca Taylor's new collaboration. The queen of downtown cool teamed up with San Francisco-based jewelry line The 2 Bandits to create a rocking collection that mixes NYC's signature style with some S.F. whimsy. (See, we can get along!)
The NYC designer strayed a bit from her usual edgy-meets-preppy aesthetic to dream up some earthy offerings that are teeming with charm, including gemstone necklaces, opal earrings, and, of course, flower-power bangles. You can nab the jewels from the online shop, but, before you do, peep our favorite pieces right here, for your viewing pleasure. East meets West, indeed.
