Singer Alicia Keys is slated to launch her new jewelry line, The Barber’s Daughter, this Monday, November 23rd in New York City. According to Womens Wear Daily, Alicia and her design partner, Gisele Theriault, have created a collection of eclectic silver pieces that will range in price from $85 to $2500 and feature inspirational prayers and quotes from author Masaru Emoto.
“I fell in love with the individuality of the pieces, but more than that, the words that were written on them really resonated with the songwriter in me,” she said. “I knew at that moment, for the first time, that through a whole other medium I would be able to spread inspiration and that’s what got me started.”
The R&B songstress adds that the mission of The Barber’s Daughters is “to give people beautiful, unique pieces with messages that ignite them to find the best within.” The Barber’s Daughters will open a pop-up shop for two days- November 23rd and 24th- at the Collette Blanchard Gallery in Manhattan to help generate buzz for the brand’s fall 2010 launch.
Usually I don’t pay too much attention when artists start fashion lines- or anything else for that matter- however, Alicia’s collection actually looks pretty good. It is jewelry I would actually buy as I am a lover of eclectic pieces of silver.
