Like all Lobby jewelry, our buyers like to choose vendors that are not just aesthetically appealing in design but hold an immense passion, drive, and story behind it. Founded and based in Montreal, Uranium‘s collections are designed and inspired with a drive for the human spirit, its evolution, behavior, values, and the adaptation to its surroundings. Their mantra “Positively Energized” symbolizes the effort and joy they put into each and every piece they create, which in turn, is passed on to everyone who supports Uranium.
All Uranium products are assembled by hand, meaning every chain, ring, or leather piece is hand cut and plated. In this way, Uranium is able to create their own pieces to their needs to provide that unique value in each jewelry.

‘She is a NATIVE HEART, She is a NEON LIGHT, She is a LOVE CHILD, She is a WILDFOX’
This embodies the ideology of Wildfox.
It prides itself on the use of vintage cottons to effectively capture the whimsical appeal of older thoughts. From laid-back collegiate lookbooks to western cowboy apparel, most recently recapturing popular 90′s flick “Clueless”, the women behind the line choose relative vintage themes.
Recently, Wildfox has broadened its horizons by creating sister lines to its infamous brand. From Wildfox White Label to Wildfox Kids, these leading ladies have thought of every base to cover. Expanding to sunglasses and footwear, the duo have formulated collaborations with mega brands to get the Wildfox name out there. What makes the couture line so interesting is that the Wildfox lookbooks focus on fantasy and imagination, which captivate consumers and entice them enough to bring them back wanting more.

With a collection of assured modernity, shown in the majestic shell of a nineteenth-century building, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandezseemed to still and quiet the noise and the chaos of our too-much-informational age.
McCollough explained that they wanted to explore “a mix of technology and craft,” and they utilized time-honored techniques like patchwork and crochet (already seasonal trends) in exciting ways, and deftly harnessed them to garments of such tidy perfection that they seemed computer-manufactured.
The show began quietly enough, with pieces that were cut as crisply as a paper-doll’s wardrobe—a sleeveless jean jacket with a box-pleated miniskirt, a dress with a stiff A-line flare, an exaggerated tee—in bold color blocks of perforated leather. Look by look the complexity increased. That color-blocking turned into elaborate patchwork effects (of eelskin, leather, and python, for instance), mirrored in the clutch purses. Pattern pieces and decorative circle insets were linked by narrow strips of crochet-work (woven by hand in Madagascar, so finely that they seemed, ironically, machine-made). Dark gladiator boots and flared-heel open-toed shoes, together with black lycra bands at the neck (a twenty-first-century take on a belle époque choker) gave a tough edge to the looks. But a softness was introduced in the bias-cut chiffon dresses with prints designed to swirl and eddy around the body, and sinuous seams were linked with press studs. Insets of abstract-motif black lace revealed further glimpses of flesh.
The artist Gerhard Richter’s compelling overpainted photographs, with their glutinous paint treatments splashed over landscape images and portraits, were a conceptual starting point for the most complex dresses. The designers utilized photo prints of random images found on Tumblr—a desertscape of succulent plants, a blurry crowd scene—and abstracted and defaced them in the Richter manner. Those prints were spliced with solid duchess satin pattern pieces, punctured with grommets in the skirts (the most decorative use of this humble trim since Alaïa’s early eighties gauntlets), and embroidered with tiny satin discs in a polka-dot effect. They were perversely chic.
Top designers like Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2013 collection is full of checkers and stripes!
NYC spring/summer 2013
Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2013 collection has a definite retro vibe, looking to the 1950’s and 1960’s for inspiration with a modern twist. Jacobs cited pop icon and Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick as an inspiration from that time as well.
Paris spring/summer 2013
Louis Vuitton Paris 2013 show was inspired by “Les Deux Plateaux,” a work by Buren that consists of 260 columns of three different heights arranged in a grid, which has been in Paris’ Palais Royal since 1986. The beautiful music and spoken words were from Phillip Glass’ opera “Einstein on the Beach.”
Celebrities like Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington, Kristen Dunst and Kirsten Stewart have already been spotted picking up this trend with checkerboard print dresses, coats, jackets and rompers.
