Maria Francesca Pepe’s jewellery exudes cool. Mixing pop culture imagery and sub-culture influences with conceptual design has become the brand’s signature aesthetic. There’s a certain sense of humour that comes with a lot of pieces but on the other end of the scale are sharp, sleek, geometric designs that err on confrontational. I was first introduced to the brand by e-bag, a local e-commerce importer, and I’ve become addicted to the well curated Instagram feed that keeps Maria Francesca Pepe’s fan up to date. After a sneak peak into their new Out Of This World collection on that Insta feed, I had to share.
Aliens from cult arcade game Space Invaders traverse the Out Of This World collection on bracelets, rings and necklaces with new varnished finishes. More enduring designs are repeated from past collections with classic pearls and art deco lines for the more subdued, but no less chic shopper. Her celebrity fans include Rihanna, Lorde, Beyonce and Kate Moss- if it’s good enough for them, right? To see a few of my favourites, look below.

While I’m not sure which of these gems e-bag will be bringing in from the collection, you can see the Spring/ Summer Maria Francesca Pepe range they currently stock

PS: (Other than knowing that the collection campaign was fronted by Elizabeth Jane Bishop of Elite Models, I can’t find other members of the crew from this incredible campaign. If you know any details, let me know so I can update this post and give the creatives involved a deserving shout out.)
