The Nana Fabella jewelry designer on her inspirations and how she channels Lartigue model Renée Perle.

My style is…

The collection is inspired by…
The untamed beauty of the sea and my muse, Brigitte Bardot’s character in the 1956 French film And God Created Woman. Also, think Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in James Bond’s Dr. No — a bit of irresistible danger peppered with glamour.

My favorite looks for the holiday are…
Classic, simple and cozy with a bit of sparkle.

I’d pair a black dress with…
Red lips and an armful of bangles, reminiscent of Renée Perle.

I always notice a woman’s jewelry when…
It seems to almost be an extension of her presence. And that can change any night. Maybe she’s feeling glamorous, going Old-World Hollywood (with an off-the-shoulder angora sweater and a bold rhinestone cuff) or maybe she’s feeling a little beach goddess (with loose hair and sun-kissed skin with silvery baroque pearls strung on leather).

The best fashion advice I’ve ever received is…
It’s all about style not fashion. And to always have elegance in everything, even when going a little punk. This was given to me by my mum, who was a fashion designer and owner of her own clothing boutique Ménage a Trois on Madison Avenue for 15 years.

The right piece of jewelry can…
Transform your jeans-and-tee look to “It Girl” status.
