Thanks to a seventies revival that started in past seasons’ front rows, Spring’s runways were super groovy and—compared to the recently-put-to-bed square-shouldered bedazzlement trend, at least—beautifully pared down. Of course, all those spare silhouettes call for some statement jewels. Starting today, All For The Mountain’s new collection of free-love stunners—like the tasseled bronze Sun Ra pendant (center)—launches on designer Carly Margolis’ newly-revamped and appropriately trippy art-project-cum-website, Margolis, whose first foray into design was as half of the team behind the wallpaper company Cavern, traded paper for oxidized metal when her double sided triangle stack necklace (incidentally, the first piece she ever made) was snapped up by Erin Wasson last year and worn on repeat. This season’s Mothership collection swaps pyramids for orbs, but Margolis still cuts and casts the pieces in her Williamsburg studio. Downstairs neighbor Mara Hoffman makes a guest appearance in the line’s newest lookbook (Margolis was the designer’s intern during college) and fellow model Maryam Nassir Zadeh, of the eponymous Lower East Side boutique, is one of the new moms Margolis had in mind when designing (hence those orbs). Also mined for inspiration: UFO sightings in Joshua Tree. Margolis is pretty sure she saw a few while she was there over the summer.
