Totally Stranded: Fiona Paxton's S/S 09 Collection

paxton1017a
There are certain designers who make us wish we'd spent a little more time at arts 'n' crafts and a little less time necking with Bobby Delfino behind the camp infirmary. Fiona Paxton is one such designer. The British jewelry queen known for her truly original hand-embroidered necklaces and scarves gave us a sneak peek at her spring/summer '09 collection, "White Nights, Bright Lights," and darn it if we didn't drool over every last piece. Paxton seems to be having a grand ol' time experimenting with new designs and textures, with her beadwork revealing zig-zags, squares, chevrons, diamonds, and a slew of patterns that wouldn't be out of place in a game of Tetris. She's also added sexy chain-fringed cuffs, and—along with rich, art-deco black, silver, and gold streamers—a punchy palette of blue, purple, and lime. Sorry Bobby, but we'll be necking with these from now on.
