According to the sibling design duo of Yaz and Emel Kurhan of Yazbukey, “Every girl has a little bit of Marilyn inside her.” The sisters’ conviction that we’re all secret MM fans led to what may be be the funniest accessory of the upcoming season: the Plexiglas Sunburnt Marilyn necklace. “If we’re not amused at the end of it all, then what’s the point?” asks Istanbul-based Emel of the creation. Emel and her older sister, Paris-based Yaz, have been making a splash in Europe for several seasons now. While the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes collection of colorful brooches, bangles, necklaces, headbands, and bags will no doubt turn a few heads, we’re also looking forward to Yazbukey’s soon-to-be launched fine jewelry line, which is inspired by ancient Celtic emblems. “It’s not Van Cleef & Arpels,” says Emel of the sterling silver, gold, and enamel pieces, “but we love jewelry and we just want people to be able to afford what we’re doing.”
