Zips are BACK!

Zips are BACK!
Break the ice and embrace avant-garde accessories in limited edition links: Zips are BACK! Pulled straight from the Tatty Devine archive, this statement piece originally zipped into our hearts when they debuted into our Autumn Winter 2008 collection, Attack of the 50ft Jewellery
  Now, they’ve returned in full pop art glory for our Misshapes birthday collection: a curated collection of iconic jewellery from our 20-year history, brought back for you to enjoy all over again. Category is: oversized everyday objects. Join us as we dust off our platforms, slip into something slinky and examine the latest drops that will end up on your Christmas wish list...

 Zip it good! Our sparkling supersized zips are the new party season staple. We’ve reimagined these cult designs with a little festive sparkle, all in the name of perfect occasion wear. Serve surreal chic in glistening laser cut links of silver glitter acrylic, complete with hand layered 3D elements, etched and a hand-inked Tatty Devine logo.

Turn the beat around with our glistening Giant Zip Statement Necklace - Silver Dust. When we say you have to be quick off the mark, we mean it! This necklace is limited to just 30 pieces and comes paired with a certificate of authenticity so you know it was handcrafted by our team in our Kent studio, just for you. This dazzling statement is the ultimate gift for Tatty Devine fans (and yes, self-gifting counts!). It has mythical status amongst many of our team and fans, not least because the inimitable Peaches modelled it in our shoot back in 2009. What else is in the teaches of Peaches? Right this way for styling tips (huh, what?):

How to wear the Giant Zip Statement Necklace:
Make it sew and add the Zip Necklace to your going out-out outfit. We’re feeling this necklace especially when it’s paired with bold bright colour pop separates (try a bodysuit!) - or even out-there 60’s and 70’s psychedelic prints. Our top tip? Scour vintage stores for striking patterns and unique finds for a party-perfect base layer that no one else will be rocking. Team Tatty loves House of Vintage, Paper Dress Vintage (we adore it so much we’ve even hosted Christmas parties there!) and even Depop for a planet-friendly alternative to another fast fashion haul.

How to wear the Zip Necklace:
Two words: wearable surrealism. We know what we’ll be wearing to welcome in the New Year - even if it ends up being over our pyjamas. Rival a Studio 54 mirrorball with this glittering Zip Necklace, which we’ve designed to fit perfectly along your neckline. We can see this being the sparkling cherry on the sundae of a Vampire’s Wife style prairie dress in luxurious velvet - or a rock and roll leather jacket and band tee combo. 
How to wear the Zip Pendant:
Pop the Zip Pendant - Silver Dust in stockings - it’s just sew cute!
We’re getting a mod vibe from this everyday sized version of our Giant Zip Statement Necklace, so we’re planning on teaming it with a dagger collar as we hit the dance floor (or just grab a Baileys at our fave local pub on Christmas Eve). Two’s company so why not wear it with...

How to wear the Zip Earrings:
… our Zip Earrings! Get the measure of our Zip Earrings - Silver Dust, lovingly reimagined in twinkling silver glitter acrylic. A statement earring takes even the most casual-ville outfit from desk to dancefloor and this pair is one of our favourites for starting conversations in the loo queue. Top tip: pair with a striking silver eyeliner wing for maximum impact. Minimalism? We don’t know her.
