>> The tribal symbols of North African Berbers and Morrocan tile work were reference points for Pamela Love's Spring 2012 collection, presented to a packed house — including Anna Wintour — at Milk Studios Saturday night. Models in cowboy hats and turbans posed atop stacked Persian rugs, a 10-piece band played in the corner, and red-hued lights gave off an exotic glow. It was a vibrant scene, one that was matched by the globally-tinged jewelry. New materials have found their way into Love's palette, making for a much brighter offering than in season's past. Red lapis, turquoise, malachite and amythest turn up in hexagonal rings and triangular tile bracelets, while ellipse-shaped breastplates are fashioned from warm-toned wood. Also on display this season was something new for Love: leather belts and clothing crafted especially for the presentation. Click through the slideshow to get an up-close look.
