Kenneth Jay Lane

Kenneth Jay Lane is now available on ASOS, Hurrah! So i thought i would write a little something to give credit to a fabulous costume jewellery designer who stated "elegance, good taste and luxury never go out of style"

First things first Kenneth was born in 1930 in Detroit, he was the first shoe designer for Delman and Christian Dior.

He created designs for the likes of Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn.

Kenneth was probably most widely known for his three-strand faux pearl necklace worn by the first Lady Barbara Bush. See photograph below...

Celebrities of today such as Sarah Jessica Parker, The Olsen twins, Mischa Barton plus many more are seen daily wearing pieces from his collections.

Many online stores stock the collections, them include Bergdorf Goodman, Liberty of London, Net-a-Porter, My Wardrobe, Shopbop and ASOS as mentioned above.

Check out some of my favourite pieces below...
