Introducing The Colourwave Collection


A touch of colour 

Get out of your comfort zone and colour your way to a bright 2022.

It’s time to move on from monochrome, this high Summer it’s all about creating your own rules, breaking free of familiar shades of grey and injecting a splash of pop colour and fun back into life with the new Colourwave Collection.
Inspired by a mix of 70’s pop colour nostalgia and good vibes along with modern memories of margaritas by the pool in Cali and sun lounging in the Amalfi Coast under cute primary coloured umbrellas, the new Colourwave collection encapsulates the essence of high vibe Summer and transports you instantly back to better, sun filled days.
Afterall, when did we become so afraid of colour? After what feels like grey clouds hanging over our heads the past few years, colouring our way to a new, brighter state of mind feels like the perfect antidote.
It also won’t require a passport, just an adventurous spirit! 
While travel has been off the radar, the Colourwave Collection allows you to still dip your toes back into poolside memories and jump out of your comfort zone to rediscover a more cheeky, flirty, adventurous spirited self reminiscent of good times - and hopefully sparking new ones too.
With colours ranging from turquoise green, to aquamarine blues, fairy floss pinks and fresh crisp t-shirt whites, the Colourwave Collection will have you inspired to stack up on gold layered pieces to pair beside them and pouring San Pallengrinos and carving up papaya by the pool before you know it.
Just like the free spirited, Woodstock-esque energy of the collection, be inspired to take a trip and create your own rules by adding just a touch of colour or stacking up an eclectic colourwave of dreams.

The Collection

Within the Colourwave Collection you can expect a mix of solid metal base pieces such as bobble chains that you can splice up with charms to suit your style  alongside gemstone feature pieces that tell a story, with each stone beholding it’s own unique meaning and energy. 

Adding to some of our Francesca much loved staples, you can expect new huggie hoop earrings featuring coloured stones, threaded stone necklaces, bobble chain necklaces and our staple stone bracelets - to be worn alone or in a stack.

As for the stones themselves, whether you’re spiritually drawn to a meaning (who doesn’t want to ward off bad spirits since the pandemic?) or are more about letting the stone or colour speak to you coloured semi-precious stones to choose from include: malachite, rhodochrosite, turquoise, blue moonstone, sunstone, quartz. 

The Look

Poolside margs and Mediterranean sunsets aside when it comes to how to wear the Colourwave Collection it’s all about integrating a hint of 70s style vibe into your style in one small way or another. 
While there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion and creating your own sense of flair and style, we recommend adding the Colourwave Collection to the following looks...

Think crochet swimsuits, colourful kaftans, tangerine lips and nails, 70s silk print shirts, block bold colour dresses, white linen shirts with denim, jacquard or pin stripe patterned shirts and clashing print bikinis.
