Lulu Frost's Spring '12 presentation was a beach-inspired oasis complete with models relaxing on lounge chairs and slick surfboards — painted by Sam Brigham — hanging from the ceiling. The whimsical line, which was inspired by Lisa Salzer's childhood days spent on the beaches of Montauk and the classic '60s surf flick, Endless Summer, highlighted natural, natural stones juxtaposed with a series of modern twists. Raw stripes of suede were intertwined in chain bracelets, oversized raw-cute stones were paired with gold spikes, and hand-shaped brass beads were adhered to angular bangles. Salzer also showed an amazing array of ornate ankle bracelets, some of which were connected to a toe ring and others that wrapped all the way up to the knee. Pretty awesome. We're already predicting this as a major Spring trend. Check out more highlights from the collection below, then peruse the slideshow to see more.
