“Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.” (www.afropunk.com)
One of the biggest festivals in New York City is happening this weekend and Andrea Bocchio Jewelry couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it! Making Peruvian inspired jewelry makes us excited to show off our work in such a culturally diverse setting. We are getting ready to meet you all and to join in on the whole experience, especially the live music.
A group of the performers at this year’s Afropunk Festival caught our eye for their style as well as their talent. Of course we naturally paired them with what jewelry or clutches would suit their personalities based on their music and their overall looks.
Leanne La Havas is a folk/soul singer and songwriter originating from London, England. She has hits such as “Forget” and “Is Your Love Big Enough?” that I love and listen to. Above we’ve paired Leanna with our Siniq necklace to go perfectly with her blue pinstripe shirt with the pale pink underneath, as well as the graphic Wiggles clutch to add a pop to her outfit.
SZA personally describes her music as “glitter trap” and we couldn’t love that more. She has a dreamy, electro-soul sound that owns her her place on the same music label as Kendrick Lamar. We love her bright style and feel that the Huron necklace and bracelet would perfectly compliment her style!
Jasmine Solano will be with Melo-X at Afropunk with their style of reggae, hip hop and electronic music all together to form what they call Electric Punnany. Ther nightclub vibe and style have influenced youth, indie and street cultures around NYC. We love Jasmine’s simple and somewhat sporty style, and especially in this picture. We’ve paired her with the elegant Vitim necklace that’s perfect for a summer festival and Tapti bracelet made of agate beads.
We’re looking forward to seeing these women in their prime and looking forward to seeing how you put together your Andrea Bocchio jewelry for the summer Afropunk festival this weekend. Make sure to stop by and say hi to us while you’re there!
