Who’s Wearing Patty Tobin

Cover Shoot with Mob Wives Star wearing Patty Tobin

Mob Wives star, Ramona Rizzo, will be featured on the cover of the upcoming debut issue of Open Closet Magazine, a new publication for fashionistas that is dedicated to promoting and creating buzz and awareness around talented emerging designers, models, and artists. We had the pleasure of working with fashion editor at large and co-founder of Open Closet Magazine, Avery Johnson, who explains the magazine’s ultimate goal is “to be a leader in showcasing the full spectrum of designers in a way that inspires – a one stop shop for stimulation, information, and beautification!”

We couldn’t be happier to work with Avery and his fabulous team! Check out the first teaser shot from Ramona’s cover shoot (below) where she’s wearing our bali sterling and freshwater pearl bracelet ($225). This style is available online at PattyTobin.com.

Platinum Style Magazine Does Retro Hollywood Glam

Platinum Style Magazine Cover“Retro Hollywood Glam” is the theme of the premier issue of Platinum Style Magazine, a new New-York-centric publication that focuses on the fashion and lifestyle of the chic New York urbanite. We were so excited to get a chance to work with the new online and print publication that launched in June; not only because we had an opportunity to participate in their first ever issue, but because they featured an interview with our favorite local actress-slash-restaurant-entrepreneur, Adriana Moretti.

Adriana is just an all-around fabulous woman — beautiful inside and out. If you have ever been to her and her hubbies’ new restaurant, Incognito, in Chelsea, you’ve no doubt witnessed her wonderfully bubbly presence and wild sense of humor that we at Patty Tobin love so much. We had so much fun draping her for this shoot and hope that both she and Incognito continue to get the recognition they so deserve.

In addition to profiling several fabulous New York women, the magazine is full of special features on New York’s art and culture scene, night life happenings, trendy fashion boutiques (like ours — wink, wink), beauty products and just the “overall fashionable style of the City.” To catch up on the latest issue and see all the fabulous photos from Adriana’s shoot, click here.

Packing tips for weekend getaways: pack a patty tobin necklace and go

Shop Patty Tobin online for this Mother of Pearl Torsade in Stormy Blue and other affordable statement styles.

All you regular weekend getawayers out there probably know all too well how tricky it can be to pack  for that much-anticipated weekend jaunt to the beach or out to the country. Every trip is the same, you tell yourself “you won’t need much,” but as the clothes and the shoes and the toiletries start to make their way into your oh-so-adorable (but oh-so dinky) Longchamps weekender bag, suddenly you realize you either have to drastically cut back on what you’re bringing or lug two bags with you instead of one.

Packing light is a skill, it’s true, but packing light without sacrificing the integrity of your outfits or your fashion sense? Now, that’s pure talent 😉 We asked some of our “best dressed” customers their tricks of the trade for consolidating one’s tiny tote for a weekend away and found that many of them had the same thing to say as Travel + Leisure magazine:

When traveling this summer, all agree, a dynamite “statement necklace” is a “must pack” item!

And where better to find the perfect statement necklace than Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry? There’s no designer out there to compare with Patty’s undeniable style, bold color selection, and unbeatable price-points. You can travel with ease knowing that you have only one lightweight bag to carry and one key accessory to take each of your outfits to the next level. “From black tie to blue jeans,” as we like to say, pair your piece with a little black dress for a Saturday night party in the Hamptons, or wear it with shorts and a tank top to Sunday brunch and shopping with the girls; no matter where you go, we promise you’ll be getting compliments.

Lighten the load when you travel and take Patty Tobin “to go” with you any weekend, to any where, for any occasion. Shop online and receive 10% OFF your entire order now through May 31st! Just enter promo code GETAWAY at checkout.

United Nations Bazaar Gets Glamorous With Patty Tobin Jewels

We are so glad to have been invited to participate in last week’s United Nations Bazaar. The whole event was such a fun experience. Hosted this year at the Kuwait Mission to the United Nations in New York, this annual shopping event is organized to raise money for various humanitarian charities. This year’s Bazaar was dedicated to the refugee victims of Syria, who have been suffering greatly due to their current situation.

Patty Tobin jewelry at the united nations

Ladies loved the color and sparkle of Patty Tobin's beautiful new selection of "gemmy-gem-gem" formal wear to her playful throw-on-and-go summer chains.

The event attracted a wonderfully eclectic mix of vendors to participate in the all-day event that brought together a diverse international crowd. Hundreds crowded in over the course of the day to support an important cause while enjoying delicious international cuisine and fabulous shopping.

Patty Tobin jewelry at the united nations

It was a full house at this year's event with guests crowing through the Kuwait Mission's gorgeous ballroom.

Patty Tobin brought a colorful selection of classic and playful styles that capture this season’s hottest trends: large statement style necklaces, pink pearls, blue, blue, and more blue accessories. Our colorful gemstone chains were one of our hottest items. They come in such great colors like our rich red (carnelian), bright blue (topaz), chocolate brown (smokey topaz), black (onyx), and purple (amethyst). And at $295, these babies are really a steal! Easy to wear long, doubled or layered — a definite “throw-on-and-go” piece.

Patty Tobin brought a diverse selection of designs from her more classic and elegant formal wear to her more playful and and funky statement styles.

Ladies were also loving Patty’s new Hematite Cube Bracelet ($195) with its large crystal-set 18k white vermeil magnetic clasp. The fun part about these is that you can wear them as bracelets, or connect the clasps and wear two or more as a necklace. Gotta love that versatility.

We always love working with the incredible women of the Islamic Heritage Society whose hard work and dedication is truly an inspiration. We look forward to participating in their next philanthropic endeavor!

Patty Tobin brought a beautiful showing of her colorful gemstone and pearl jewelry to ITEM Boutique yesterday for our first in-store trunk show on the Upper East Side. Thanks to our wonderful host and owner of ITEM, Wendy, we had two beautiful models there to strut their stuff in Patty’s gorgeous jewels while guests had a chance to enjoy some wine and shop the collection. It was a great night filled with fun, fashion and fabulous baubles. We can’t wait to partner with Wendy again. Stay tuned for more news and updates about the boutique and our line. Plus, checkout some great pictures from the night on our Facebook page!

New colorful gemstone chains by Patty Tobin

Patty's new gemstone chains were on display at yesterdays showcase. The perfect piece to throw on with any outfit. They come in all different colors, including the vibrant blue topaz, classic smokey topaz, and this firey carnelian (show above from left to right). We also carry this style in onyx and amethyst. And for $295, they're a steal!

Our new gemstone chains (shown above) have been a huge hit since we got them in two weeks ago. They were a big part of yesterday’s showcase with so many different colors and ways to wear. This style is really such an easy piece to throw on and go. Whether you wear it long (about 40″), or doubled-up to fit better with some necklines, or layered with a second chain (my personal favorite) for a fuller statement look. This necklace suits any lady from 18-80, it can easily go day or night and makes for a lovely gift to someone special or even as a little treat to yourself. And at $295 each, they won’t break the bank. No buyers remorse here, we can promise you. These styles will be available for sale on our online store in the coming weeks, but you can always call or stop by our Chelsea boutique on W.17th Street today to get yours before they’re gone!

L'Officiel is the "essential" fashion and beauty read for high-class, educated women.

We’re so pleased to share the recent coverage Patty Tobin received in some major media outlets in Eastern Europe following her debut in Vilnius and Klaipeda in December.  The shows, hosted by renowned Lithuanian jewelry designer, Yurga Lago, were a smashing success with an impressive VIP guest list at both, including a number of celebrities, fashion stylists and industry executives as well as artists, on camera news anchors and fashion press.

The ultimate French fashion magazine, L’Officiel, was in attendance and covered the event featuring photos of Eastern European super model Smilte Bagoziune wearing Patty Tobin. More guest photos included major fashionista and celebrity stylist, Karinai Leontjevai, as well as Saulius Ivanauskas and Nerija Makarkaite, husband and wife co-owners of the exclusive and trendy Vilnius boutique, BOHO Chic.

Not only did this trip mark the entrance of Patty Tobin jewelry to Europe, but it was also the first in a series of conferences organized by the two designers to discuss future ventures in Moscow as well as parts of Western Europe. Yurga and Tobin have been working together for more than a year to cross-promote each other’s brands in their respective markets of Lithuania and New York, but more collaboration is in the works.

The announcement was made at the shows of the designers’ plans to open a New York City showroom together later this year following the launch of Yurga Lago at the Patty Tobin boutique in Chelsea for New York’s biggest annual fashion extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out, in September. Patty will begin carrying Yurga’s collection in our boutique a few weeks prior to Yurga’s official launch on FNO 2012. Lots more in the works, so be sure to stay tuned!

A Hardcore Thank You to Miami’s Chill Concept

Patty Tobin's Wearable Art Collection in Miami

Patty Tobin celebrates the grand opening of Nina Fuentes' brainchild, The Chill Concept, at Miami's Hardcore Art Contemporary Space on Semptember 10, 2011.

Prince Malik (left) and Nina Fuentes (right) joined Patty Tobin (center) at her flagship boutique in Chelsea on Fashion's Night Out to celebrate the second anniversary of her grand opening in New York City.

It was our honor and pleasure to exhibit Patty Tobin at The Chill Concept at the Hardcore Art Contemporary Space in Miami this past season. Nestled right in the heart of Miami’s wonderfully edgy Wynwood Art District, Hardcore has been home to our first art gallery installation of Patty Tobin jewelry.

After kicking off in September with the gallery’s grand opening, we have had the opportunity to introduce Patty Tobin jewelry, not only to local Miami residents, but to international travelers as well. (Needless to say, Art Basel in December was one of our favorite highlights of the season.)

We want to say a special Thank You to Nina Fuentes and all our friends at Hardcore! Nina and her staff couldn’t have been more lovely to work with. Nina, an artist herself, and the creator of The Chill Concept gallery, discovered us rather serendipitously at our New York City flagship store in Chelsea last May while making her usual gallery rounds. Recognizing Patty Tobin jewelry as “wearable art,” Nina instantly saw an opportunity to incorporate us into her concept for the new gallery’s installation. (Read more…)

Nina is without a doubt in the ranks of celebrity women who wear Patty Tobin. We are always so impressed with her sense of style and taste. We can’t wait to exhibit with her again at Hardcore later this year for the 2012-2013 season! An exciting new collection is already in the works, so stay tuned.

PLUS Model Magazine Sparks Controversy with Gutsy Photoshoot

PLUS Model Magazine features Patty Tobin jewelry

PLUS Model Magazine features jewelry by Patty Tobin in it's January 2012 issue that has sparked a media frenzy with it's "Plus Size Bodies: What’s Wrong With Them Anyways?" feature story.

PLUS Model Magazine recent feature, “Plus Size Bodies: What’s Wrong With Them Anyways?” has sparked a major media frenzy over the past week that’s reached around the globe and led to feature stories on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, Entertainment Tonight, Fox News, and dozens of other newspaper and blog websites.

ABC's Diane Sawyer covers PLUS size models story

Our involvement with this issue, of course, started when Patty Tobin jewelry was selected for the January 2012 issue that features plus-size model Katya Zharkova in a gutsy photoshoot that has since been characterized as “explosive” and “thought provoking.”

The question the issue poses is simple: What’s so wrong with plus sized bodies anyways? The answer: nothing.

Entertainment Tonight reports on Plus size bodies controversy

Then why has this story stirred up so much controversy you ask? Because, in addition to the fact that women today are bombarded with countless weight-loss advertisements every single day by a multi-billion dollar industry that preys on the fear of being fat, according to editor-in-chief of PPM Madeline Figueroa-Jones who wrote the hot topic article, the fashion industry has continued to support the dwindling figure of your average American model. Despite the fact that 50% of women in this country today wear a size 14 or larger, the vast majority of models today continue to shrink down to anorexic proportions.

Plus Size Bodies: What's Wrong With Them Anyways?

Frankly, our position on the issue is this: These women are beautiful! They’re healthy, they’re curvy and it’s about time we start addressing the fact that the “full figured” woman who takes care of herself and styles herself is as lovely as her smaller counterpart. Good things not only come in small packages but in larger packages too!  The idea that mainstream perception of “full figure” is synonymous with “fat” or “unhealthy” is ludacris!

Patty Tobin jewelry always makes a statement but has never made a better one than it has here in Katya’s photo shoot.  We often style this pearl lariat down the bare back of a black tie ensemble, but Jacci Jaye takes it to a whole other level by draping it down Katya’s bare back with nothing else but her Christian Louboutin’s.

We are so excited for the follow up story PPM’s February issue will feature on the story behind the shoot. The teasers are out and Patty Tobin jewelry is featured!

For now though, check out the latest installment of “Get The Look” featured by PPM. It highlights the “Luxe Jewels” Katya Zharkova wore for the photoshoot, including our Patty Tobin jewels. “[Donning] nothing but goegeous baubles, bangles and beads” by Patty Tobin and Atelier Minyon, stylist Jacci Jaye shares with readers where they can get the same look. Check out the story online here and look for it in the next issue of PPM out February 1st 2012!

Patty Tobin has always believed that accessories rule when it comes to fashion.   A woman’s outfit may be her canvas, but her true style – that which is most unique to her personality – is found in her accessories: her jewelry, her shoes, her bag, her belt, her scarf. It’s always been our motto that jewelry is the “ultimate fashion accessory” and it seems so appropriate to use it here – where a woman’s size has no baring on her beauty or style whatsoever. Whatever your size, Patty Tobin jewelry is a one-size fits all luxury for every woman.

Loving this bride’s “something blue” from Patty Tobin

January 5, 2012  |  Get The Look, Who's Wearing Patty Tobin

We love working with brides at Patty Tobin and every once in a while we get extra special lucky to work with one who wants to go a little outside the box. A few months ago, then bride to be, Veronica Pecnik, came into our store looking for her wedding jewelry. While most brides stick to the traditional white pearl variety of jewelry, Veronica was looking for something different. She saw our turquoise shard necklace and fell in love. It was to be her “something blue” and let’s just say, after seeing the wedding photos, the girl blue it out of the water on this one. She looked absolutely fabulous in her gorgeous v-neck white satin gown with this one of a kind statement piece. She couldn’t have been happier with how the necklace looked with her dress and we couldn’t have been happier to help make her wedding day that much more special.
