Beautifully British: Jubilee Jewellery

After 70 years of service, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. Following the death of her father, George VI, she ascended to the throne at the age of 25. She has advised 14 prime ministers, met 13 US presidents, and served as a figurehead as the country has navigated numerous crises in the intervening years. Events will be held throughout the year to commemorate this historic occasion, culminating in a four-day weekend in June. To celebrate Joe Cool has put together a selection of beautifully British fashions for your enjoyment.

Show off your pride with our range of earrings, socks and bracelets decorated in the famed Union Jack. Our capital city is home not only to the Queen but to many other Great British icons. Recognised all around the world, the red double decker bus is a well known symbol of the British capital making Joe Cool’s double decker drop earrings a must have component of any iconic look! London is also home to the worlds most famous clock so fittingly we have a pair of socks and golden stud earrings starring Big Ben. Our charming pair of beefeater earrings are also just as delightful!


Patriotic palettes adorn our collection of signature socks. The faded hues of our embossed floral pairs offer a variation on the classic red, white and blue colour story. A nostalgic daisy motif and jumbo heart print are a more playful approach to patriotic socks whilst our London bus or Frida Kahlo pairs are .

Red, white and blue themed accessories abound. A Bowie-esque thunderbolt ring is beautifully British whilst our glass millefiori necklace and bracelet duo is too good to miss. Our resin square ring is the ultimate statement piece especially when paired with our alluring acrylic earrings in bold square and circle styles. Mottle cellulose hoops and stud discs are equally gorgeous.

Sensational scarfs in show-stopping prints will complete any Jubilee outfit!

Statement Socks: Put Your Best Foot Forward

Since their inception in Ancient Egypt, socks have spent the best part of two millennia on a turbulent journey to ultimately land at the bottom of, and likely lose their other half in, your washing machine. An often overlooked but no less integral part of any outfit, socks are perhaps the easiest way to elevate an otherwise underwhelming look. Joe Cool’s Statement Socks offer an excellent opportunity for you to express your personality in a way that can be simultaneously understated and flashy, after-all, socks pack a surprisingly big punch, when considered on their own stylistic merit.

Its all about texture with our flora and fauna sock lines. Our sheer collection is adorned in tropical embroidery that is eclectic yet impossibly chic. Embossed floral finishes distinguish themselves from the traditional ribbed and knitted textures, introducing a new textural element to jazz up your footwear. Darling depictions of an enchanting forest & a woodland scene can be found on several of Joe Cool’s statement socks, naturally exuding an idyllic essence.

Arty ankles will adore our flowery Frida or perfectly pastiche pair of Warhol inspired socks. Make the ultimate statement in our hot lips print, sure to keep your name in everyone’s mouth! For dog lovers: A dapper dachshund duo in tiffany blue or a plucky chocolate pair patterned in pug. Geometric prints offer a strikingly sophisticated take on statement sock dressing whilst graphic cow print and fabulous flocks of sheep will result in head-turning hooves. Foodie favourites include our classic wasabi green pair decorated in a sushi motif, the gorgeously gaudy banana print and our fried egg pair, ideal for the eggcentrics of the world.

Statement socks are an easy and inexpensive indulgence that can instantly add character to your wardrobe. As with everything Joe Cool – these socks were made to be seen and our ostentatious offerings leave no excuse for a sub-par sock game. So, what are you waiting for? Pick yours up before they’re all gone!

Art Accessories: Renaissance Re-Imagined

art accessories

Bring the gallery home with Joe Cool’s art accessories!

Unrivalled in its fame, Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus’ has been engraved into popular culture forever and is symbolic for its depiction of femininity, beauty and grandeur. Part of our collection of ‘Masterpiece’ fans, this art accessory is an absolute spectacle. Re-imagined by contrasting the intricate delicacy of the painters masterful hand with gaudy golds, leopard print and Tiffany blue, we paired chunky chains with rusty wooden notes to bring Botticelli into the 21st century.

Staying true to the playful DNA of Joe Cool, an eclectic range of accessories have been selected to couple with our Botticelli Masterpiece fan. Wire and beaded glass textures work in tandem with acrylic and gold finishes to heighten the colour palette found in the painting. Subtle wood tones are used to ground the composition, all styled together to conjure a ravishing Renaissance re-telling.

Fashioned from bamboo and cotton, our ‘Masterpiece’ fans serve both style and function. The chicest way to combat the pesky perspiration brought on by the encroaching summer heat. Whether its Hokusai’s beating ‘Great Wave’, the soothing scene of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ or the beaming buds found in Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Irises’, we can’t get enough of the natural motifs in cooling blues and joyous summertime yellows. When they aren’t being used to fabulously fan yourself down in the summer months, they double as their own work of art to be displayed in your home. The ultimate art accessories!

Complimentary to our fans are our range of ‘Masterpiece’ socks in both ankle and ‘no show’ styles. Featuring fabled works by legendary artists ranging from Matisse to Munch to Renoir. Our 85% cotton and spandex blend ensures the highest quality and comfort whilst our variety of designs guarantee trend-setting toes. Why not elevate your sock game with our Mona Lisa selection? Nothing screams fashionista quite like a pair of Da Vinci draped digits!

Cool socks for hot feet – blue water inspiration

cool socks

Cool socks are a must have accessory. Shades of blue, sea scenes and ocean creatures all create a fresh ambiance evoking cool lagoon waters and refreshing mountain springs. Make a splash with ‘The Great Wave’ sock featured. Based on the famous wood-block print by the Japanese master, Hokusai, it is a striking image of turbulent waves with the iconic Mount Fuji in the background. Other sea and river themed Masterpiece socks include Monet’s ‘Houses of Parliament’ – a silhouette in beautiful blue shades flanked by the shimmering sunset lit River Thames, Renoir’s ‘Boating on the Seine’, another one of our cool socks in similar blue hues and there is also the popular ‘Birth of Venus’ based on that most wonderful renaissance painting by Botticelli.

A more humorous ocean inspired interpretation can be found on socks such as gents ‘great white shark’ and ‘shark attack’. There are also gents anchors, large and small… and for the foodies; ‘catch of the day’, featuring an attractive tuna pattern or ‘prawn cocktail’ in black and orange.

With more water creatures in mind and introducing brighter reds and orange, how about a shoal of goldfish, lobsters or coral reef party – all in women’s free-size. Cool socks from cooler seascapes include Grey Whale, Arctic Orca and a couple of penguin variations for good measure!

With so called ‘staycations’ and camping holidays the order of the day this summer for most of us, our little selection of landscape scenes seem quite fitting. ‘Alpine scene’ and ‘Field scene’ are fantasy vistas in vibrant fresh greens with touches of bright colour and interesting detail. ‘Beach scene’ celebrates sunset while’Mountain scene’ and ‘Camping scene’ suggest romantic nights under the stars.

Joe Cool draws on nature for so much inspiration – throughout our range you can find design drawn from the natural world.

The colourful blocks, whether you were a player or not, make a striking and stylish statement for work or play! Like an old friend, ‘Arcade ghost’, a much ‘loved’ gaming character, is instantly recognisable, on socks for men and women. This retro favourite comes in burgundy, navy, teal and black form the original selection for blokes and are now joined by a pale pink and grey version in the slightly smaller womens’ size.

Retro comes to jewellery too with space invader stud earrings in silver and gold finish and a choice of enamel colours. Arcade pacman and ghost are another fun stud – a ‘mismatched’ pair featuring those two famous characters and we have a set of four Tetris design earrings for you to mix and match as the mood takes you. The Rubik’s cube was a hugely popular puzzle in the 1970’s and ’80’s. Invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and architect, Erno Rubik, the Rubik’s Cube is a colourful 3-D combination puzzle. We have created a cool pendant, which comes complete with moving parts on a colourful ball chain. Mini Rubik’s Cube drop earrings complete the story.

The ‘white noise’ T.V. keyring harks back to a time before flat-screens and digital media. Our ‘chunky’ telly even has a noise function to take you back to that retro ‘white noise’ of former times…That is if you are old enough to remember! Pre-mobile phone cameras come as crystal and enamel rings, stud and drop earrings and pendants in black and white.
