Designer Melissa Coker of Wren just released the lookbook for her spring 2012 collection, which was inspired by '70s film and Lana del Ray. The label is available in stores around the country, but New York gets an extra bonus in the form of four limited-edition accessories designed by Coker's friend Dana Lorenz of Fenton/Fallon.
Coker and Lorenz both grew up on the North Shore of Chicago, and their capsule collection references the famously preppy area with an aesthetic that's a little bit F. Scott Fitzgerald and a little bit Ferris Bueller. There's a pair of faux pearl earrings ($110), a bracelet ($175), and two charm-festooned necklaces ($195 and $250), all of which will be available at Fenton/Fallon's Lower East Side shop starting in mid-March. Those back in Chicago can still get in on the action, though—the pieces will also be available to order online.
