I can't remember the last time I wrote about a new designer I discovered, just for the joy of curating their product and spreading the good word. Mercedes Salazar makes the accessories you wish you had either hanging from your ears or in your lap while sitting at a beachfront resort, drinking piña coladas. If you've been obsessed with the fruit-themed jewellery from Dolce & Gabanna but at a fraction of the price. That's not to say her pieces are inexpensive, with a pair of hoop earrings setting you back anywhere between $200-$300. That depends on your currency conversion, and if you aren't prepared to spend that much (and this is your first time here, this is not the blog for you). Anyway, I'm surprise the brand hasn't been featured on Man Repeller, although these days I can't say I've kept up to date with every Instagram post and piece of content they've produced in the last week, let alone the last month. The earrings take their inspiration from Salazar's native Colombia and are a sweet treat no matter what the time of year. It might be nauseatingly early, but I know what I'm going to ask Santa for Christmas this year!
