Style HQ | Rachel Zoe Inc

One look at the sea of shoes in this HQ and you instantly know that these fabulous offices belong to Rachel Zoe Inc. Imagine going into work each day and instead of seeing un-filed paperwork, bottles of Tipex and spreadsheets you saw Louboutins, Choo's, Casadei's & Zanotti's all lined up neatly on the floor and perfectly colour coordinated. For some this 'organised clutter' would be too much, but when shoes are this beautiful they need to be on show. I am loving every inch of this office including the perspex nail polish rack on the wall decorated with gobstopper cocktail rings....fabulous.

Shourouk keeps her pieces unique and contemporary by using embroidery techniques with modern materials like Swarovski crystals, sequins, and silk. Spring Summer 2012 has some of Shourouk's best pieces yet: a triple band claw ring combines three statement rings into one and her "Shabanou" fringe necklace with emerald and gold crystals is the perfect pair for a white tee...

Pamela Love Spring Summer 2012

Few designers have mastered the tough-chic accessory the way that jewelry designer, Pamela Love, has. Her signature skulls and spikes that are meant to add just a hint of edge to jewelry collections, but often end up looking more like tools of torture from another designer. With Love's expert eye, Spring Summer 2012's five spike sterling silver fan earrings or bold pyramid rings are chic, classic, and anything but torturous. Inspired by a conversion of Eastern and Western influences, Love used the detailing of Moroccan tile work to add pops of brightly colored stones like red jasper or deep lapis. Her collection is available to pre-order from Moda Operandi from now until 26 October 2011to 11pm EDT.
