Necklaces are huge this season. Not just figuratively, but literally too - with chunky styles in various metals and materials dominating the necks of women everywhere.   If you have yet to find your perfect piece, look no further than the lust-worthy wearables of Roarke - New York.

Newly founded in 2009, this novel brand has already garnered much industry attention and been spotted on celebrities like Ivanka Trump and Mary-Louise Parker. With such unique, "notice-me" necklaces, it won't be long before Roarke is on the lips (and necks) of every fashionphile from NYC to LA...

...Which is exactly what founders Mignonne Gavigan and Laetitia Stanfield are hoping. Educated at the Sorbonne - Paris, and Parsons - New York, Mignonne worked for various fashion houses including Asprey and Marc Jacobs, before designing her own collection. Inspired by vintage gowns, Mignonne uses elaborately beaded chiffon to form irregular shapes - creating a fresh, modern take on couture extravagance.

Laetitia, the other half of Roarke, has a trained eye for trend spotting and quality design. A former buyer for Bergdorf Goodman, Laetitia was immediately drawn to Mignonne's unique creations, and used her strong industry savvy skills to bring Roarke to life.

Roarke's signature style "Le Charlot" is the ultimate statement necklace, giving texture and luxury to even the simplest outfit. Available in a rainbow of colors this weighty, beaded bib drapes as perfectly over the neckline of your favorite t-shirt as it does a bare collarbone.

But Le Charlot is not the only notable item in the collection, which includes several chic collars, wrapped bracelets and even headbands - guaranteed to get a nod from even the toughest fashion critics.

But don't just take my word for it - visit their brand new website for a full range of styles, and even styling suggestions!
