Our designer Al, caught up with jewelstreet to talk all things sparkly

Posted on January 24, 2017 by Alpay Turfan

How did you get into the jewellery industry?

“I received a very formal engineering degree, but my passion for jewellery has always been hidden somewhere deep inside. I started out learning traditional jewellery design in a small atelier in Istanbul. My teachers were the artisans who were trained by their own family members. This gave me access to family traditions and methods usually passed down from generation to generation. After years of working in the corporate world, and secretly scribbling designs at the back of my notebook during soul stealing meetings, I decided to make a life-changing decision; I moved to the United Kingdom, leaving my career behind to pursue my passion. At first it sounded totally insane to my friends and family however, in the long run it felt very liberating.”

Why did you start your own jewellery line?

“I believe success comes when you passionately love the work you do. Therefore, it was the inevitable thing for me to do after giving up on my professional career. Making a living on something which you create is quite satisfying in many ways.”

Where do you create your best work?

“I’m never without my sketch book which means I’m not confined to four walls. Inspiration can form in the most unlikely of places which means I’m always ready to jot down ideas and concepts. I am inspired by almost anything I see on my travels. It can be a small bee in the park or a beautiful motif on a silk carpet. I am working with a team of fine artisans in my atelier in Turkey to bring my designs to life.”

What are your key brand values?

“Being ethical in sourcing materials is very important to us. We ensure all of our stingray leather and gemstones are sustainably sourced.”


What has been the high point of 2016?

“This year has seen us nominated as a Brand to Watch at the UK Jewellery Awards and an upcoming finalist for Professional Jeweller’s Collections of the Year 2016.”


 What does the future hold for Latelita London?

“I’m proud of everything I have achieved but I am never complacent. We are a boutique jewellery label and wish to remain so. We love pushing the boundaries of design and strive to create timeless statement pieces that will be treasured for years to come. I don’t believe you can ever arrive in terms of creativity and in the future, I would love to collaborate with other designers and artists. Always follow you gut instinct, more often than not it will serve you well.”

How to wear pink, the dos and don'ts

Posted on August 11, 2016 by Alpay Turfan

Candy princess

Latelita sparkly earrings



Pink can be a tricky colour to wear and it can be a fine line between being a pink princess or Barbara Carlant!
If you’ve ever pondered the question, should a grown woman ever wear pink? The answer, for this season at least, is a resounding YES
With Pantone's colour of the year dominating the catwalk in dusty hues and sweet pastels it's time for even the biggest pink sceptics to embrace the trend.
We list our do's and don'ts when it comes to tackling this trend.
DO's
- Pair with navy or black for a more sophisticated look
- Keep it simple. A few accents on accesories whilst keeping clothing neutral
- Mix floral dresses with solid accessories for a more femine look
DON'TS
- Mix too many shades.
- Take Barbie as your style icon. Keep it sophisticated.
- Go too girlie by styling your hair in waves. Sleek hair be it in a ponytaill or poker straight will help keep it edgy.
