This holiday, add some Frost to your J.Crew cashmere with the Lulu Frost for J.Crew jewelry collaboration, set to debut for Holiday 2010, reports Daily Front Row. The idea of a collaboration came about when J.Crew President Jenna Lyons purchased a Lulu Frost necklace and thought it would be perfect for the iconic American brand; J.Crew Women’s Design Director Marissa Webb agreed and visited the Lulu Frost studio with her team. They searched through Frost designer Lisa Salzer’s archives, mixing their vintage findings with modern elements for the line.
The line uses handmade chains, antiqued glass crystals, and touches of 1o-carat gold for the unique bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Prices range from $75 to $175 and will be available both in-store and online.
