The new lookbook for model Erin Wasson's Low Luv jewlery line is out—and it seems to be quite the personal affair. Wasson models her own designs, and JUST her own designs in the nude photo spread shot by photographer Paola Kudacki. Kudacki noted, “Erin has an incredible body and face, and she understands better than anyone the idea behind her designs. The clothes were not necessary!"
For the latest collection, comprised of both Spring and Holiday collection pieces, Wasson was inspired by the symbolism of various cultures, from Native American (a thunderbird pendant and necklace) to Middle Eastern (Evil Eye stacked rings and bangles). “I usually design what I find interesting and powerful,” Wasson said. “I want pieces that look intense and have meaning.”
Wasson herself channeled a sort of other worldy goddess in the photo spread, channeling a Cleopatra-like Egyptian beauty. The stylized look was in part an homage to the late Egyptian-born singer Oum Kalthoum, the so-called Star of the East, another source of Wasson's inspiration for the line. “Once the music references start popping up, I wanted to portrait her like a goddess, like Nefertiti,” Kudacki added. The Low Luv Spring/Holiday collection includes hammered rings, chandelier earrings, and crosses studded with rough crystals and black agates, among other statment-making pieces and can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue.
