This week saw the online launch of the Sarah Angold for Freedom at Topshop jewellery range. With an MA in Constructed Textiles from the RCA and clients including Selfridges and Hussein Chalayan, Angold is a name to watch in the world of accessories. Her main range employs techniques such as laser cutting and acid etching to create unique architectural pieces, with her team utilising the finesse of watch-making to craft all the pieces from her East London studio.
Freedom at Topshop, £52
Angold has not compromised on quality with this diffusion range for Topshop – each item in the collection is handmade in her studio and engraved with an individual production number. Having arrived at the Oxford Street store 2 weeks ago, fashion fans outside London can now grab a piece of the action online. If you like your necklaces to make a statement then this is the range for you. Bold, graphic and futuristic, these pieces are perfect for a hedonistic night in balmy Ibiza. Or, closer to home, add one to your outfit for this weekend’s Secret Garden Party.

NB. Speaking of partying, a pair of Angold’s striking earrings wouldn’t go amiss at the V&A’s Club to Catwalk exhibition, which highlights the clothing of the crazy 80s London clubbing scene. With a resurgence of 80s influenced garments currently in stores, and neon brights doing the fashion rounds, you can get inspired by the New Romantics or warehouse party looks of a bygone era. Just leave the glow-stick at home.
