An ode to Rome.
Feeling inspired upon the return from a birthday trip to Rome, Lucy Williams (blogger, writer and stylist) was stirred to create a collection based around the city’s antiquities and treasured artefacts. Together Lucy and Marisa joined forces for the second time to create a collection depicting Roman iconography.
The collection features a selection of pendant necklaces inspired by coins and talismans with cultural motifs from ancient Rome. The coins echo the detailed, symbolic execution of Roman jewellery, whilst the fresh interpretation brings amulet status symbols into the 21st century for the modern woman.
The collection is set to launch Wednesday 4th October 2017
It’s been over two years now since Lucy and I first met, our ideas colliding over cocktails, and during this time our aesthetics have grown to be even more in tune, whilst our understanding of how each other works has deepened. So if anything, we are even more excited about the launch of this new ‘Roman Collection’ because collaborating together has been such an exciting journey. We both bring different ideas to the table which I feel really complement each other and fuse together to create something special. This collection is a complete departure from the first, but can still be worn together and compliment the original pieces. It throws together a story linking Lucy’s style, Missoma’s design and finish and leaves the wearer to interpret it in their own way; it’s the perfect blend of concept, creation and curation.

The Lucy Williams x Missoma Collaboration Story
The Roman Collection is part two of the Lucy Williams x Missoma collaboration story. In 2015 Lucy and Marisa joined forces to create the Lucy Williams x Missoma tribal collection featuring the now iconic Large Horn and Mini Fang Necklaces. Pieces which, two years on are still an every-day staple on every it-girl from the UK to Australia and beyond. Two years on, Missoma is set to launch Lucy Williams x Missoma: The Roman Collection in October 2017, launching exclusively on missoma.com on 4th October.
