Olive + Piper Noteworthy Style

Editor's Journal, Fashion, Featured

Olive + Piper, a fun and playful online jewelry boutique and collection, started from a dream and a few risky decisions. Founder Tania Yan grew up as a quiet and artistic young child, immersing herself in her studies, ballet, singing and piano. Like most young girls, Tania made her own beaded accessories, including jewelry and headbands, to express her own individual style. Taking a detour in college, Tania found herself studying cell biology and genetics, and it wasn’t until after graduation where she worked at a large ecommerce company that Tania was inspired to work with fashion jewelry. With a desire to start her own business, a personal fashion blog and a passion for designing, Olive + Piper was born.

imageOlive + Piper officially launched in October 2012, selling curated pieces made ethically in China. But Tania soon developed a bigger dream, a dream to design her own pieces. She began creating inspiration boards, sketching her designs and envisioning what they would look like. In the past year, Olive + Piper launched three new collections, all designed in-house, with more than 30 styles in multiple color variations. All pieces are inspired by Tania’s every day life, including color schemes or patterns she is exposed to.

 

Olive + Piper aspires to help ambitious girls feel edgy and daring all while staying true to oneself. Tania thrives on the idea of individuality and boldness, two elements seen in each piece. Olive + Piper’s mission is to CREATE a guilty pleasure fashion lovers fall in love with, to SHARE its love and passion for the “sparklier things in life,” and to INSPIRE the world to explore and celebrate individual style. The expressive jewelry line aims to help girls everywhere feel confident and successful, while still being conscious of their bank accounts

 

Olive + Piper reflects its mission through the charming collections they offer. The accessories range from casual to formal, and any piece can be found for every occasion. All hardware is made with 14k gold-plated metals and glass, acrylic or semi-precious stone embellishments. The Luxe Collection is comprised of vintage-inspired statement pieces made with marquise-shaped crystals to add a brilliant sparkle to any outfit. The Marble Collection is made with matte gold hardware and white marble to create edgy organic silhouettes with a sleek chic vibe. The Delicate Collection is a mix of rose gold and gold layered necklaces, bracelets and rings to add simple but elegant dimension to any look.

The brand aims to inspire women to explore and celebrate individual style with simple, yet fun designs at affordable prices. Olive + Piper jewelry is made to keep ambitious girls stylish, playful and fresh with bold and sparkly necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings with prices ranging from $28.00 to $68.00.

It’s time to bring back the 60’s; fashion that is. We’re talking knee length dresses, skirts and shorts, midi belts and big collars. Vivienne Pash brings these styles back to women, leaving all that other 60’s “men are in charge” nonsense behind. Women are bigger, better and bolder today – just like her SS 16 collection.
As a Jamaican native, Pash grew up surrounded by delicate materials, draping everyone in their own way. Inspired by the different elements that come together to make a garment, Vivienne began sewing pieces for her life-sized doll. Taking motivation from this, she decided to begin creating her own personalized collection. After fashion school, New York became home for the creation of her line. “I brought my designs to life because they deserved to be seen,” Pash explained.
Right she was; her line has become a conversation starter. What sets Vivienne Pash apart from other designers is that she does not follow any trends and creates her own classic sets of garments for today’s fashion. Inspired by style icons like Twiggy and Tilda Swinton, the feel she exerts from her clothing is of a fashion risk-taker. Her designs are bold, simple and dynamic.
Meant to stand-out, the first official collection launched is heavy on black and white with some coral, grey and nude accents sprinkled around each corner. The dresses, skirts, tops and pantsuits are classy punk with a full-on retro vibe. Classic-cool, Breakfast at Tiffany’s anyone? Stepping out in the fan-favorite being the polka dot pantsuit with a midi tie belt would sure make a mother proud.
Cropped tops are seen everywhere, but not like this. Made with bold fabrics, each are simple and outlined perfectly along the shoulders and collar. The statement pieces will be sure to catch an eye along the way to work, lunch or a night out on the town. Major street style. With features on Vogue.com, we will be sure to see more of Vivienne Pash along the way.
The pieces can be worn individually or together, each making a statement on the sleek, classy, modern lady. Fitting each woman comfortably throughout her day, the clothing is made with cotton, silk, scuba, chiffon and jersey knit materials.
Pash inspires us to channel our inner ‘Mad Men’ self to take the more refined style of the 60’s American upper-class to our day-to-day wear. She also reminds us how much fun fashion can be. The prices for her collection range from $59.00-$800.00, it is available at ViviennePash.com.
