>> Statement necklaces are here to stay if Dannijo-designing sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder have anything to say about it. Offering refuge from New York's bitter cold last night in a Chelsea gallery space, the sisters showed knotted oxidized brass bracelets, intricate necklaces adorned with turquoise, and glittering Swarovski-dotted collar pieces against a western-inspired bordello tableau — complete with a token sunglassed man puffing on a cigarette. The Fall 2011 Dannijo collection was inspired by two American eras — "the pastoral frontier of the Wild West with the shameless opulence of the Roaring 20s," according to show notes. And Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock popped by — the Snyders collaborated with Vena Cava on '90s, working girl-inspired pieces for their Fall 2011 runway.
