“I need a vacation.” After hearing New York women utter this phrase far too often, Lisidolly Estrella-Savaglia, a personal stylist and avid traveler, decided to offer her clients an escape, at least fashionwise, with her designs. For spring, she launched Lyes, her collection of bracelets inspired by her travels to sunny locales such as Bali, Saint-Tropez and Sicily. The python bracelets are boldly embellished with compilations of flora and fauna, including starfish and gem-encrusted butterflies. “I design for the woman who is not afraid to show off,” says Estrella-Savaglia, who uses onyx, coral, precious stones and trinkets to decorate her one-of-a-kind pieces. Each item in the collection, called The Trips, is inspired by and named for a different destination. The reds used in the Santo Domingo bracelet are meant to represent the color of the city’s wet earth, while the black beads on the Sicily bracelet are intended to mimic volcanic ash from Mount Etna. The bracelets retail for $550 and are sold exclusively on charmandchain.com. Clutches and caftans are also in the works.
