Move over Whitney, there’s a new designer in The City. “Social” Olivia Palermo is channeling her love of accessories into a limited edition collection of five necklaces for New York designer Roberta Freymann. Inspired by Olivia and Roberta’s favorite cities and neighborhoods — including Paris, Berlin’s Mitte and Manhattan’s Tribeca — the collection, ranging in price from $175-$300, will hit Roberta Freymann boutiques nationwide and e-boutique robertarollarrabbit.com on March 24. “I am thrilled to be partnering with Roberta for my first foray into design,” says Olivia in a statement. “As a longtime supporter and admirer of her accessories, I felt a collaboration between Roberta and myself would be an ideal fit. I’m honored and excited to bring a touch of my own personal style aesthetic to her brilliant collection.” And the feeling is mutual: “I love how Olivia uses my accessories to complement other pieces she wears. She looks so elegant and adapts them to her wardrobe effortlessly; the partnership was obvious for me,” says the designer. Tell us: Will you buy Olivia Palermo’s jewels?
