I think it's cool when designers infuse their own culture or interests into their designs. That's why I'm intrigued with Top Chef Padma Lakshmi's new fine jewelry collection, PADMA. It just launched today (!) and it's inspired by her Indian heritage as well as her cooking: seeds and pods, such as cardamom, lentils and cloves (and those are things I have no clue about, so I'm extra-enthralled!).
Beautiful cuffs, necklaces and earrings abound and range from $300-6,000 bucks (something for everyone, no?). You can find these golden treasures exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. Couldn't you see yourself wearing these with your fav maxidress or a pair of cuffed jeans? So boho chic it's crazy!
