T. Charles Style’s latest collection is called Tribal instinct. They are mostly a dynamic mix of metals and beads carefully fused together to create beautiful accessories for the style conscious lady. Tribal patterns are a hot trend for spring and were featured in many spring 2012 fashion shows during fashion weeks. I even wrote a post on how to create a tribal look recently.
This year’s pieces feature many colours perfect for spring such as gold, red, brown, yellow, orange with one or two pieces in blue and pink. It’s a nice alternative to the typical pastels and florals we are used to seeing this time of year because it transitions easily into summer. Many of the items are made with wood, seed beads and metal. The Mirembe, Sisi and Achan earrings are a favourite because they can be incorporated into boho style. Any of the necklaces would look pretty around the neckline but the Akhila necklace definitely caught my attention the most.
Owner of the line, Taj Charles says, “I love the colour and craftsmanship of African tribes and I really wanted to bring that out in this collection, hence the name Tribal Instinct.” At under $20 for most, the full line is available for purchase on their website and are both nickel and lead safe.
