Penny Winter
Mixing vintage tribal with modern mystique, fashionista Penny Winter brings further panache to her clothing line with a stylish and stunning selection of exotic jewelry, handmade in artisan workshops throughout Kenya. Designed to complement both day and evening wear, Winter’s collection goes beyond accessorizing to dazzle the eye with an eclectic mix of texture, color and artistry. Designs which dress up as easily on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue as they do on the savannahs of the Maasai Mara. Penny’s designs perfectly suit the modern woman, who is herself an irreverent mix of rebellious, elegant, contemporary and relevant. A golden camel-bone bracelet with dark etchings, reminiscent of Arabia. A necklace of hammered brass featuring antique Ethiopian amber and a horn-and-crystal pendant. Knuckle-duster rings with Somali coins from the 1970s. A trio of skinny bangles, combining spiky studs, rivets and rustic horn. Cuff bracelets with East African gemstones and organic crystals. Endorsed by Max Mara boss Flavio Moggi, Winter’s current client list includes Sylvia Fendi, the creative force behind Fendi; Anna Friel; Princess Caroline of Monaco; CEO Mimma Viglezio of LVMH; filmmaker Trudi Styler; and Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz. A special jewelry line using horn, brass and gemstones is also sold in high-end American department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
