TREND FOCUS: WRAP-AROUND DETAIL

Deep V-necks are the perfect way to showcase our new long length chains (find them here). That’s why, here at Muru, one of our favourite up-and-coming trends of AW14 is the wrap-around top. This trend creates a super-stylish, sophisticated deep neckline that’s just crying out for a simple, stylish necklace. We love the subtle look – it’s definitely one of our go-to looks for autumn/winter, especially with party season fast approaching! For those who like a more unique look, why not layer up a few of your favourites to create your... Read More

TREND FOCUS: BOHEMIAN STYLE

  Boho-style is always a popular trend during the summer months, but it can also work well for autumn with a few tweaks. Think blanket cardigans, fringes, fedora hats and layering. For this trend, Vanessa Hudgens is our go-to girl. Slouchy jumpers and flowing maxi skirts are a perfect way to make this trend work for AW14. Our dreamcatcher necklaces are an ideal accompaniment to this look. Choose a single chain for a subtle, simple look, or layer up your favourites for effortless bohemian chic!

INSPIRED BY… THE HORN

The horn is a talisman of protection. It is an ancient Italian amulet worn to repel the evil eye or malocchio. In Italian, the horn is referred to as cornuto, corno or cornicello and literally means ‘little horn’. Traditionally the horn would’ve been pinned to babies’ clothing straight after birth. The malocchio was supposed to harm pregnant women, nursing mothers and their babies. Although it’s main form is as a necklace, during the latter half of the 20th century, the horn was hung in cars as a good luck charm.... Read More

TREND FOCUS: HIGH NECK JUMPERS

Autumn is now definitely upon us so it’s time to get practical with our fashion choices. Thankfully one of this season’s hottest trends is the classic high/roll/turtle neck jumper. We love that these super-cosy knits will now earn us big fashion points – if it’s good enough for Rita Ora then it’s good enough for us! Black is always a classic, but go for berry shades or fresh white for an updated look. Hugely versatile, the turtle neck is perfect with high-waisted trousers, casual jeans, an A-line skirt – you name... Read More

INSPIRED BY… THE DRAGON’S EYE

The dragon’s eye talisman is a well-known, universal amulet of protection. It is an ancient Germanic symbol said to protect anyone who recited the incantation to it. The symbol is depicted in Rudolph Koch’s Book Of Signs; a collection of old world symbols. It consists of an equilateral or isosceles triangle, (meaning threat) with a Y shape, (meaning the choice between good & evil) encased within it, touching each corner of the shape. The three equal parts that are created are thought to represent love, power and wisdom. Therefore the symbol is... Read More

INSPIRED BY… THE EVIL EYE

Like the Hamsa Hand, the Evil Eye is the Talisman for Protection. The symbol is one of the most ancient in history, dating back to the age of classical antiquity. The eye was believed to represent an evil or malicious stare that was able to cause misfortune to the receiver. It was thought that being on the receiving end of the stare was enough to cause illness or death. To protect against the stare, people wore the evil eye as a talisman to protect against evil forces. The hamsa is... Read More
