White Collar Works
Chunky statement necklaces are so overdone - not to mention terribly uncomfortable to wear in this heat. We therefore suggest you switch over to these pretty collars, made with beads and sequins sewn onto satin and designed by Olivia Dar out of a tiny studio in Shahpurjat. They come in a bunch of colours including white, black, navy, purple and emerald green, and can be worn over a tank top, shift dress or under a blazer.
Going High Neck
A jewelry trader and gemologist who has lived in Jaipur and Delhi for over a decade, Olivia launched her design label only a few months ago, under which she designs accessories and jewelry. We've seen and liked her wraparound wrist bracelets, thin, long cords of silk and sequin; and fun, double-coloured clutches. Her stuff is hard to find, popping up occasionally at stores in Khan Market and private sales, but she takes individual orders with quick turn around - we had our collars within three days of ordering!
