Assad Mounser

Right now I’m going a little bit jewellery crazy. I’m simultaneously nurturing a passion for Pamela Love, Eddie Borgo, antique Navajo and Moroccan bracelets and a few weeks ago I discovered Assad Mounser. I’m obviously cursed. I’ve just added one more name to my list of infatuations and will need to exercise financial restraint when I walk around the jewellery department of Liberty. Maybe I should simply avoid its immediate vicinity. The last time I immersed myself in the world of this department store I responded emotionally and returned home with a Pamela Love crystal pendant embraced by a snake and a gold peacock ring. For me, this is one shop where the magic definitely takes place. I can never resist. Pleasure and indulgence really grip me and bring me back for more. If you love fashion like I do Liberty is the number one reference in London. I often feel there is an oversaturation of extremely commercial names out there but here I can experiment to my heart’s desire with less known as well as critically acclaimed fashion designers. The entire building is a vast accumulation of distinctive and beautiful style. It gives me something different without feeling confined by trends. The buyers clearly avoid the formulaic and this is one of the most comforting constancies of Liberty. It therefore wasn’t a surprise to find out they would stock the astoundingly talented Assad Mounser. The 32 year old American designer creates rock/punk infused pieces evoking a kind of futuristic Blade Runner era. Pure genius and craftsmanship. I absolutely adore the seamless flow of spikes, cones and hippie stones which give a notion of dramatic unit and style. I’m just longing for a piece and do not know how long I will be able to endure not wearing one of Assad's bracelets or necklaces!
