Black #10: The Girls & The Jewelry

The rest of Black's tenth issue is equally fab. 

The Waiting Comes In Waves
I so love the editorial of Kim Noorda. The colours are simply gorgeous and the juxtaposition of fabrics is great (tule, cashmere, silk, either). And those shoes are to die for - the brown leather stops them being too bondage.
Im 99.9% sure the jacket on the left is a Rick Owens - I would give my first born for one of his leather jackets. Its also nice to see those embellished Gucci pants from their now iconic (and much referenced/copied) Fall 08 collection.
Ps: Does Noorda make anyone else seriously want to get a messy bob? Or is it just me?

Karen Walker Jewelry
Love these ads, so stunning and quirky. The nostalgia of the ornament makes the jewelry even more special - gives it a sense of tradition and an heirloom quality.

Deadly Ponies Precious
Love that the amazingly talented Deadly Ponies do jewelry now. I've been semi-obsessed with their creamy flower pieces ever since I saw one at Superette when they first came out. There is something stunningly aged and primal about them (very different to typical flower based jewelry). Also, as I have also been obsessed with the solid fragility of bell jars my whole life, I love this shot; so evocative and shrine-like.
