Christopher St James - Glamour is back!






















Christopher St James' shop is an Aladdin's cave of the most outrageously beautiful and spangly accessories I have had the pleasure to see for a while. The designs are wonderfully bold, if you want to be subtle don't wear them! These costume jewels are there to be seen, your body a mere vehicle to adorn. One thing is for sure you will look fabulous and get noticed.
I was expecting the prices of his collection to be very expensive but they are credit crunch sensitive and affordable.
Christopher has a work shop in Paris and works for many of the top couturiers creating designs for their catwalk shows. He also produces jewels for the film industry.  The list of film credits is long,  Evita, Shakespeare in Love, Elizabeth, Sex in The City, Marie Antoinette, Ugly Betty, The Duchess, Young Victoria, The Tudors, Moulin Rouge to name a few. Dita Von Teese is a fan too and and has bought many pieces.
Christopher St James carries the largest and best selection of original Lea Stein pieces, and supplies many shops and dealers. Lea Stein is a french designer who started in the 1960s, Christopher St James is well known to collectors as the place to find her vintage pieces.
Find the shop in Covent Garden, 14 Cecil Court WC2N 4HE
