See the party; be the party. Perhaps more than any other location, at the height of the disco era, Studio 54 was unquestionably the place to be. It was cosmopolitan, it was trend-setting, and it was where the who’s who of 1970s New York City braved notoriously long lines and gruff doormen to participate in the multimedia experience within, which would not have been complete without one of the most recognizable symbols of the Seventies: the disco ball. This and another symbol, the flower, come together in these long earrings, ideal for the setting of the eponymous club. Orli says, “The legend, if you will, of Studio 54 has persisted in the annals of popular culture. I think it must have been quite a spectacle, so any earrings inspired by it would also have to be quite a spectacle. There are times when disco balls must hang from your ears.”
Some say the Sixties and the Seventies were the best of times. Some say they were the not-the-best of times. Pretty much all say they were also the colorful of times. Dramatic change affected everything, from society and politics to music, art, and fashion. Social movements reflected the progressivism of a modernizing global society, cultural movements reflected youth rebelling against older ideas and styles, and lively, striking color exploded everywhere. Costume jewelry packed with bright hues and bold beads became pervasive, the more audacious, the better. Kaleidoscopic pays homage to this massive rush of peace, love, and style with high-voltage shades and shapes and a distinct combination of both vintage and modern lines.
