As I previewed a few weeks ago, the new Persona Fall 2014 Collection is called Wanderlust and has three distinct themes: the Asia Collection, Sahara Collection, and India Collection. Today is the official release day for these sets and it’s probably the best designs I’ve seen from this brand yet. There’s a great mix of motifs as well as materials that they’re known for; lots of enamel, glass, and high polished silver that come together to make really colorful pieces.
Asia is still my favorite collection as it gives a great tour of the region with pieces that showcase iconic imagery from both China and Japan. I particularly like the Cherry Blossom and Great Wave charms as they are uniquely Persona, with great enamel detailing that really makes them stand out on a bracelet. I adore the Cute Camel from the Sahara collection – not many camels out there in the charm world! He has a great sculpt and is depicted sitting, taking a breather from carrying the load on his back. Also check out the beautiful colors on the Exotic Silk bead from the India collection. It’s another very distinctly Persona bead that highlights the brand’s enamel detailing and bright style.
Persona is compatible with all major bracelet brands including Pandora and Trollbeads, and can be found at major jewelers like Zales or online. What do you think of these themes and the new direction that Persona is heading toward?
