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!

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.
