British designer Julien Macdonald is gearing up to launch his first ever jewellery collection on November 23rd. Speaking on the direction he chose for the new designs, Julien has revealed that his jewellery will be more wearable than his catwalk clothing collections and can even look great casually. He explained: ''My pieces aren't shy. It is full-on, cocktail, red-carpet glamour. You don't necessarily wear them to the supermarket on a Saturday morning with the kids, but with my jewellery they probably will. A Julien Macdonald customer doesn't sit in the corner of a room, she is the room - she's the host.''

Commenting on his inspiration, Julien has said that he loves wild cats and was amazed by them while on safari, so there is an animalistic element to his pieces. He also went for a maximalist, full-on aesthetic: ''I love safari and I've been a few times. I take a lot of inspiration from it because you're so close to all the wild cats, so I wanted to incorporate that, but my kind of animal - she's more bionic. The pieces are very modern because I like jewellery pieces that you can talk about. I don't see the point in jewellery being tiny and small. I like over-the-top things.''

Julien previously worked at Givenchy but now only works for his only label and he admits he likes it that way: ''I've been asked a few times would I consider things but I've turned the offers down because I like working for myself. Fashion's a difficult game because everyone wants to be cool in fashion; being glamorous and cool is very difficult to pull off.''
