Young British Designers feature - 'How to be in Fashion now' - 4th August 2015 Biased maybe, but the UK really is the hotbed for young fashion talent. And no other retai..

YBD and Sophie Hulme picked out by Flossie, Style Fashion Editor – July 2015

What better month to introduce you to a wonderfully English and extremely talented young jewellery designer.

Meet Molly Perrin.

Molly grew up in London and Norfolk and studied her BA in metalwork and jewellery design at Farnham University for the Creative Arts in Surrey. In September of this year she began the Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery MA at the Royal College of Art.

Molly's inspirations are eccentric, esoteric and ever so English. She admits to a passion for spying on old houses, rummaging for finds at antique or flea markets, charity shops and auction houses: "especially if there's a proper tea room nearby!"

It was this English tradition of loving the quirkiness of the past that really caught our eye with Molly's jewellery. In particular her "Stiff Upper Lip" collection. Molly explains its genesis:

"The moustache piece came from me imagining the peculiarly British people that may have lived in the houses my inspiration came from € for example the 'Stiff Upper Lip' character. The form is based on the 'moustache guards' dandies used to protect their carefully coiffed moustaches from the many dainty teacups full of tea they would drink each day."



We loved the idea of wearing a moustache about our neck, the form itself is quite organic albeit coiffed, pretty in a masculine perverse kind of way and sort of sexy with a smile.

Which one is your favourite?



And for every 'Stiff Upper Lip' bought during November we will donate £10 to the Movember charity for Men's Health, specifically Prostate Cancer.
