New Label Alert - Correy & Lyon Contemporary Fine Jewellery

Correy & Lyon is a newly launched jewellery label that was conceived one snow filled winter in Berlin. Inspired by the effortlessly cool aura that the city emits and draped heavily in the lure of flea market gold digging that is synonymous with the culture and holds a nostalgic place in my heart. Focusing on fine costume jewellery made from sterling silver 925 and gold plated in 14k gold. Correy & Lyon have been very well received in the designer’s native country of Australia, with 2014 seeing the label expand into the international market.
Designer Kristy Correy has always been more than just a little obsessed with creativity, and looking back at her career the evidence is plain to see. Her journey through the world of fashion and design has taken her from humble beginnings in a small collective studio in the suburbs of Perth to the luxury retail market in Europe. After starting her own fashion label back in 2006 she went on to open a boutique as a platform for emerging Australian designers, co-founded a not-for-profit arts organisation aimed at bringing creative life back to a forgotten part of Perth and worked for a university nurturing creative talent. In 2010 Kristy moved overseas and into luxury retail, most recently residing in Berlin as the menswear buyer for a luxury retail concept store. Now dividing her time between Australia and Europe, Kristy has gone back to her design roots and is currently launching the jewellery label Correy & Lyon.
