Hello Yellow: A Cracking Easter

Hello Yellow: A Cracking Easter

Easter: For some its an excuse to devour an inordinate volume of chocolate (if you needed one), and others, a celebration with deeper meaning. On the fashion front, it means truly embracing spring with pastel shades and floral prints, rabbit motifs and sweet accessories. A true embodiment of the phrase “look good, feel good”. Joe Cool has a host of seasonal treats perfect for injecting a little spring flair into your existing jewellery box.

Easter yellow is a seasonal staple. A colour that feels good and engages positive feelings that are contagious, after-all, couldn’t we all use a little sunshine right now? Take a look at our fabulous yellow accessories: Marbled effects can be found on our fusion bangle and ceramic drop earrings. Our chevron printed scarf is evocative of Easter egg decorations whilst our acrylic chain with graffiti detailing, tassel earrings and polka-dot glass ring are an eccentrics dream. Petit fleur in garden hues and papaya printed socks in blue and beaming yellow are must-have spring socks.

The Easter Bunny has upped their game this year with some Joe Cool jewellery and accessories. Charming rabbit motifs decorate socks and kerchiefs, a delightfully quaint rabbit and carrot set of stud earrings, a painterly acrylic brooch and silver origami pendant. Playful tartan ornament and articulated rabbit and carrot keyring are perfect gifts. Alternative to the ones made of chocolate, these bunny treats are free of calories.

Our Kitschy daisy ring that looks as if its been plucked straight from a spring garden. The two-tone double daisy drop earrings are infused with joy and 60’s nostalgia. Lilac socks with sheer detailing will have you looking fresh as a daisy whilst our tiffany blue capis shell earrings are to die for.

Fashionably speaking, the butterfly is literally everywhere right now. For many, the butterfly symbolizes a positive message amidst a world very much still in recovery. Browse our beautifully bejewelled butterfly earrings or equally charming cloisonne butterfly ring. Our mandarin clip-top cosmetic bag and pistachio coloured kerchief printed in botanical butterflies are some of our favourites.

A Mad Tea-Party: Tarts, Toadstools & Tea-Cups

A mad tea-party

A story coveted by many, Alice and her adventures in Wonderland have enjoyed a myriad of adaptations in the worlds of art, film, photography, performance and fashion. Transcending the pages of Lewis Carroll’s original 1865 novel, Alice and her cohort of crazed cronies have become visual icons – imprinted in the minds of an audience spanning generations. With Joe Cool’s flair for the fantastical, it comes as no surprise that we have everything from tarts, toadstools & tea-cups fitting for a totally bonkers garden tea-party. Our zany accessories might have you looking just a little bit mad, but in the wise words of Alice herself: “All the best people are”.

Take a trip down the rabbit hole of Joe Cool’s accessory Wonderland. A selection of Alice-approved stud earrings include a mismatched hat and card, a cup and teapot, a pair of white rabbits and a duo of toadstools. Our playfully quaint acrylic bangle and pendant chain will steal your heart whilst an eccentric miniature leopard print hat will leave you questioning your sanity. Wonderland socks come in an endearing Mary-Jane style or depicting a humorous hookah induced scene. Be a sanguine queen in our rose adorned alice-band and much to the guard’s delight, our roses don’t need to be painted!

Unmatched in its charm and delicacy, dress the table with our ‘Tea Garden’ range – blue and white ceramic bead necklaces, bracelets and earrings in the style of delftware – or ‘Country Garden’, also in ceramic bead, this time patterned in pink English rose. Even more delightful is the cup and saucer drop earrings. Only the teapot remains!

Indulge in some sweet treats from our Cafe Cool collection, the most appetising addition to any mad tea party. Cream tart and cake slice resin brooches are dainty delights, most delicious when served with iced doughnut and liqourice allsort drop earrings. Tasty enough to make your mouth-water! A smartie necklace looks good enough to eat whilst our strawberry cake slice and macaron key-rings are the creme de la creme. To top it all off our cherry barrette is…well… the cherry on top! Kitschy, kooky and camp, Joe Cool’s accessories will always leave you grinning like the Cheshire Cat.

Scorching Haute: Sun, Sea and Scarves

We know sun, sea and scarves may seem like a kooky combo, however, these wonderful squares of fabric have a uniquely versatile nature, seemingly able to transport the wearer (in the mind at least) to different locations, eras or entirely different worlds.

scorching haute: sun, sea and scarves

Now firmly in Summer’s grasp, we are all stripping off. The good thing about that is, less clothing makes room for more accessories! And here at Joe Cool we can assure you that more is more. Our exuberant colour story begins with one of our scorching-haute scarves, the best hair remedy for humid days and styled here with exotic cotton thread earrings fashioned in the abstracted image of birds of paradise. An acrylic chain and bangles add a squeeze of citrus, paired with a handmade whale brooch for some much needed whimsy. Add a coin purse to carry all you treasures and you’re ready to take on the seven seas!

Take a look at Joe Cool’s treasure chest of island getaway goodies. A flamingo and pineapple motif makes for a total tropical treat whilst our embroidered sequin eye brooch puts one in mind of seductive sirens from distant days of yore. Dreams of white sandy beaches and pristine waters are captured in a pendant necklace fashioned from iron and glass. The marvelous ‘macaron’ style compact mirror is perfect for all your vacay-vanity needs and our cowrie shell ring and fruity enamel earrings make escaping to the tropics easy as pie.

Versatile and trendier than ever, its time to let our scorching-haute scarves have their day in the sun. Whether you’re pretending to be Grace Kelly driving through the South of France in a chic convertible or living your treasure island pirate (cue eye-roll)…fanta-sea, Joe Cool has a scarf option for everyone. Graphic polka dots and abstract pleated prints work gorgeously as a pony tie whilst paisley and tie-dye prints worn in a bandana style will have all the sea-dogs seeing green. A silky citrine floral moment in a babushka style sounds like a match made in heaven, beaten only by a cotton kerchief neck tie in a tantalizing turquoise. The possibilities are endless!
