INSPIRATION FROM EVERYWHERE: A CFDA nomination brings many things — recognition, opportunities — but how about a little design inspiration? For her first-ever resort collection for Fallon, 2010 accessories nominee Dana Lorenz was inspired by the crystal, pearl and speaker-wire necklace she created for The CFDA Swarovski Award Collection. “I wanted to explore the clash of traditional jewelry ideas with something nontraditional, like speaker wire,” said Lorenz, who uses the same materials in the 25-style resort lineup. Beribboned earrings, which resemble tied cables, are wittily named Wire Management, while a more extravagant spike and crystal necklace is dubbed Speed of Light and tiny stud earrings are simply called Sound Bite. As for the more graphic and structured vibe in the collection, Lorenz noted: “I see resort as a good time to do something different. It’ll be a good way for me to take risks and give the customer something newer and fresher.”
