Right now, you’re looking at the ultimate ‘it’ list of style staples that pay back their investments year after year. It’s a curated, customized selection of gorgeous new picks for you, starting with an amazing Miami-based jewelry designer we just discovered: Liza Schwartz.

Crafted in precious metals and top-quality leather, Liza Schwartz’s jewelry adds an air of comfortable elegance to your fall wardrobe. (Our Fashion Editor has built quite the collection of her pieces, and we’ve been swooning over them for months.) We finally caught up with Liza, and learned the incredible story behind her brand…

Liza Schwartz holds that rare combination of creativity and self-motivation. Her inspiration? “European sophistication with South Beach’s carefree vibe—something that a confident woman would wear.” Aged just 13 years old, she started selling her jewelry along South Florida’s fashion hub Lincoln Road with her mother. (That is, until the local police eventually banned them from selling there.)

As the years passed, Liza’s designs—influenced by her teenage years living along the coast in Barcelona, Spain—evolved to carry the same level of craftsmanship and technique she saw in the creations of local artisans there. That’s where rich, finely braided Nappa leather, and intricately placed crystals come into play. Together with all the color of Miami’s laid-back style, Liza has created a beautiful staple look that we can wear with everything from glammed up dresses to jeans and a tee.

And we love the fact that she supports American artisans. Joining forces with beloved leather workers and metalsmiths in the local Miami community, pieces are rendered by hand using precious materials, and have fast become favored by celebrities like Oprah and Gabrielle Union. Perfect to transition any look from day to night, the whole collection is about to turn your fall wardrobe around—we can’t wait for you to discover these pieces.

Nestled in the heart of Parisian life, in an intimate and secret workshop, Philippe Anton and Eric Malavergne are handcrafting unique belts and bracelets. They use precious skins and exotic leathers (all hand-worked in their studio before being cut, sanded, and polished to perfection) from gorgeous creatures like stingray, crocodiles and snakes, with a focus on pure, unadulterated elegance.

We were particularly wowed by the inspiration behind their pieces—every buckle symbolizes the affinity between the masculine and the feminine, which is echoed in the reversible design of their belts. This is attention to detail at its very finest—and it’s destined to elevate your look this season.
