While designer TIA CIBANNI delivered a vibrant Ready to Wear Collection at her September 2009 Byrant Park show, it was THE ACCESSORIES that played the starring role. Her collaboration with jewelry designer, LINN PETERSON resulted in some innovative necklaces that are wearable organic works of art – right on trend.

These chunky pieces add some heft and oomph to the flowing pieces in the spring Ports Collection. So go ahead, don’t be shy, get in touch with your wilder side with these items that feature pieces of "found items". This season, they’re necklaces and belts, in a few years, we’re betting they’ll be collectors’ items. Get them while you can!
