Fashion Notes: DuePunti Bangles, JINsoon Nails, & Wai Ming Designer PA

September 6 2012, 7:40 AM

Fall’s color palette of black, blue, brown, and oxblood is dramatic, but adding bright accessories not only helps balance the look out, it also adds just the right amount of fashion cheekiness. Enter Italy’s DuePunti, a playful jewelry line of colorful silicone rings and—starting this month—bracelets, with a brilliant cut, .02 carat diamond (certified conflict-free) set in silver. The fall collection (pictured, above) ranges from autumnal oranges and reds to bright yellow, pink, and blue, giving the wearer a wide color range of stackable options to collect.

Rings, $98, bracelets, $118 each, Oster Jewelers, 251 Steele St., 303-572-1111, osterjewelers.com

She may not be a household name, but editorial and celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi is launching her first nail collection (pictured, right) this month under the name JINsoon. The tightly edited series of 12 hues includes half a dozen classics (like red, wine, and ballet pink) plus six on-trend fall colors (dark olive, teal, and dark purple) that deliver a durable manicure with rich color in just one coat. Also watch for Choi’s soon-to-bow high-performance nail care line, free of harsh chemicals—like formaldehyde, toluene, DPB, formaldehyde resin, and camphor,—so her formulations won’t discolor nails.

$18 each, spacenk.com (starting next week) and sephora.com (starting September 18)

We’re pre-empting this event a bit, but we want to give you plenty of time to prepare. Back in April, we wrote up women’s contemporary line Wai Ming (pictured, left), which Alicia, The Boutique had just started carrying for spring. Having already created a buzz in the fashion press (like DailyCandy, People's Style Watch, and Refinery29) and established a following in Denver in just one season, fans will be able to meet designer Emily Koplar at her Fall 2012 trunk show on Friday, October 12. Mark your calendars, as Koplar will only be here for one short day!

Wai Ming Fall/Winter 2012 trunk show, 11 a.m.–3 p.m., Alicia, The Boutique, 3035 E. Third Ave., 303-399-4597, aliciatheboutique.com
