Sandi Burrows Designs Protest Jewelry for Every Generation

Published

on

Stepping inside Sandi Burrows’s Upper East Side studio, every jewel tells a story–both figuratively and literally. A heart-shaped brooch reads “anger into action” while globe-shaped pins are splashed with “nothing matters more,” a direct reference to global climate change. Stacked bangles reading “resist” line a table with pink “smash the patriarchy” pendants and “civil rights are birthrights” medallions. These pieces, and more, are all part of Burrows’s Passionate Protest collection, which she launched in 2020.

Burrows has been an industry fixture for over half a century, and has worked as an in-house jeweler with Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, and Ralph Lauren. In 1974, she started designing pieces for her namesake line, which over time has included fine jewelry, custom commissions, and now Passionate Protest. It comes at a lower price point and has attracted a cult following among people who align themselves with activism, at least, on the Upper East Side, where pieces are sold at the boutique Blue Tree, NYC. “The great thing about New York is anything goes right?” she says. “I was not intimidated in any way, or afraid, to put bold things out there because there will be a customer for it.”

Passionate Protest pieces are designed to be layered up and worn with personality. Take, for example, how the designer herself wears multiple versions of the pendants as a charm necklace and also attaches them to her bags, for instance, which definitely garners curious stares on the subway, according to her. There’s a variety of different gender pendants that can also be strung on chains and draped on top of each other alongside necklaces that read “massacre misogyny” for a multi-layered messaging effect.

“Trump got elected, and I was just bitching and bitching and bitching to my son until he said to me, ‘mommy, just shut up or do something about it.’” Burrows started with themes of humanitarianism, environmentalism, and above all else voting, before getting laser focused on the aspects of toxic masculinity and patriarchy that she says are at the root of many of these issues.

Goth Bride Megan Fox Just Debuted a Blonde Lob and Blunt Bangs

While she may have gone blonde (again), she’s still the same Megan Fox. On January 28, the future goth bride shared a photo of a small shrine dedicated to her relationship with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly, writing, “The pendulum says you guys gotta start conceptualizing the more nuanced levels of trolling.” The reason for her pointed message remains unclear.

Fox and MGK are no strangers to manifestation and rituals. In January 2022, Fox told her followers she drank Kelly’s blood after the pair got engaged. “Just as in every lifetime before this one and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes… And then we drank each other’s blood,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

“Yeah. So I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood,” Fox later told Glamour UK. “It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.”

Best Fashion Instagrams of the Week: Kylie Jenner, Timothée Chalamet, and Rosalía

Published

on

Is the point-and-shoot aesthetic making a comeback? Because this week, It girls such as Dua Lipa, Rosalía, and Bella Hadid uploaded photos bathed in the gloriously unforgiving whitewash of shoddy flash photography. Hailey Bieber even took things one step further and shared a mirror selfie where the beams of flash bisect her face. The whole thing feels like a harbinger of a Myspace-era comeback of fun, bad-on-purpose photography.

Meanwhile, there were plenty of more obvious and concrete trends to be found on the celebrity section of Instagram. Troye Sivan showed off his delightful spin on “womenswear as menswear” with a Loewe appliquéd cable-knit wool sweater. The fashion crowd continues to embrace the punk-flavored power of a Chopova skirt. Addison Rae added to the ever-growing list of knockout vintage Y2K, donning a wrap skirt from Roberto Cavalli’s spring 2000 collection. And Timothée Chalamet loves Haider Ackermann (just like the rest of us). 

All in all, it was a pretty good week on Myspace—erm, I mean Instagram! 

Below, check out some of the most memorable posts of the week.

At Valentino Couture, Beauty Got a Club Kid Makeover

Published

Legendary hairstylist Guido Palau, meanwhile, conjured a smörgåsbord of different looks: natural hair, slicked-back hair, two-tone hair, a bleached peach buzz cut, and a shocking pink mohawk. “None of the looks were really extreme because the clothes were so beautiful and crazy and quite exaggerated,” says Guido. “I wanted to keep it cool and kind of real. You know, when you’re at a club, there’s one girl with her hair pulled back and a guy with a great haircut, and then girls with texture. It just reflects today, really. But at night.”
