Earlier this week, I looked at the collaborations between fashion houses and artists of the twentieth century. Who would have thought that Salvador Dali or Man Ray would be inclined to enter the world of fashion? The result of such collaborations came in the form of beautiful and bizarre jewellery items that now reach astonishing prices at auction. Today, fashion houses collaborate with fellow designers, but also tap into other spheres, such as music, television, technology - you name it. Fashion seeps into all aspects of our lives, which is why these cross-sector collaborations are a great source of style inspiration. Discover the top jewellery and fashion apparel collaborations for some superior style inspiration.

Rihanna x Chopard

Rihanna X Chopard

The Swisse luxury jewellery and watch manufacturer, Chopard, surprised audiences when launching a collaborative range of jewellery with Rihanna. The music superstar has collaborated with Puma, River Island and Manolo Blahnik. Yet this collaboration signified her new venture into the affluent world of jewellery. Working closely with Chopard’s creative director Caroline Scheufele, the pair worked to ‘blend urban chic with classic glamour’. Rihanna’s influence manifests itself in carnival colours and Barbados-inspired beauty. Whilst Chopard served luxury finesse with premium gemstones such as sapphires and rubies.

Yeezy x Jacob Arabo

Yeezy x Jacob Arabo

By this point, nothing Kanye does is a surprise. From rogue Twitter rants to his newfound republican rep, tapping into the fine jewellery market was actually a refreshingly rational move from the star. In 2017, Kanye’s fashion brand Yeezy collaborated with Jacob Arabo, a renowned diamond designer (who often goes by his nickname, Jacob the Jeweller). Arabo is famous for his a-list clientbase, including the likes of Pharrell Williams, David Beckham and Madonna. The Yeezy x Jacob Arabo collection consists of 12 pieces which heavily feature bold chains and gold pendants. Inspired by 14th century Florentine art, the collection glances to the past in order to represent ‘timeless love’. Being a figure known to brush shoulders with celebrity elites, Arabo seems like an unsurprising choice for Kanye’s venture into the world of fine jewellery.

Annoushka x Susie Cave

Annoushka x Susie Cave

This collaboration was golden for anyone who’s a fan of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. The bracelet launched by Annoushka and the singer’s wife, Susie, features an array of charms referencing songs by the musician. Red right hand, of course, takes the form of a hand wearing a ruby ring. The attention to detail within the collaboration is second-to-none. Take the yellow gold church charm which opens to show a couple - a direct reference to God Is In The House. The idea came from a conversation Nick and Susie Cave had. Seeing as the band’s songs are rich with symbolism and imagery, they came up with the idea to usurp the traditional charm bracelets to create something fun and specific.

Thames x Stephen Webster

Thames x Stephen Webster


Who would have thought streetwear and fine jewellery would go hand in hand? British fine jewellery designer Stephen Webster collaborated back in 2017, launching a 12-piece range of bold, brash and seriously edgy jewellery. The collection is chunky yet chic, featuring eclectic motifs such as razor blades and cherubs. Wanting to shy away from the elitist framework of fashion collaborations, the two, very different brands (one streetwear, one fine jewellery) joined forces to create something organic, fresh and stylish. The collection itself covers all areas, necklaces to pendants to rings, all which harness this youthful and unapologetic vibe. The range is also unisex, although leans towards the masculine side of style. Even so, it’s one of my favourite collaborations serving hardcore, raw authenticity.

Aquazzura x Anissa Kermiche

Aquazzura x Anissa Kermiche

Renowned party shoe designer, Aquazzura, did a collaboration last year with five jewellery designers, including the dazzling Anissa Kermiche. The festive season is the time of year to get your most sparkling kicks out to party, and so these jewellery designers gave Aquazzura some festive finesse with dazzling designs. Diamonds and pearls were amongst the glittering gemstones that encrusted stiletto and boot silhouettes, but Anissa Kermiche’s design was by far my favourite. Featuring three balancing circles holding a precious pearl, the gorgeous shoes are a show-stopper. The curved lines of the heel are typical to Kermiche’s jewellery designs, showing how the collaboration between jewellery and apparel can evoke such magic.
