by Elizabeth Marr SOURCE Fashionlvr

Tricks just aren't for kids. ChrisHabana makes magic resurrecting Gothic iconography and filtering it through a pop lens. The New York based designer's jewelry collection is playful yet subversive, featuring signature cross, spike, and triangle charms. The self-titled line has become notorious for never taking things too seriously.

The new Chris Habana Spring 2011 jewelry collection is filled with subversive jewelry inspired by goth iconography and pop culture. The kind of jewelry you wear when you’re not buying into the “diamonds are girl’s best friends” mantra. Jewelry for the cool kids.

Dubbed Mon Amour, Mon Ennemi, Habana’s new Spring 2011 collection is a beautiful balance between darkness and romanticism. The lookbook that was photographed by Dom Smith and styled by Cameron Cooper captures that notion and shows that edgy people need love too.

Chris Habana started his unisex line of jewelry in 2004 and has come very far since then. Over the years he was featured in highly regarded publications like V Magazine, Vogue Italia, The New York Times and Nylon and more recently collaborated on an A-OK collection with Oak. As you see even with commercial success he stays on the edgy side.

His jewelry can be purchased where all the cool people shop – ShopBop (, Oak (, Seven New York ( and Ssense (
