TWC Sicka Than Average Event Sponsored By Sobral

May 15th Sobral was among the sponsors for the Sicka Than Average event at the Time Warner Center. The party was held in celebration of the blog’s third anniversary, as well as the conclusion of Time Warner Center’s “Fashion Blogger Forecast Initiative”, (in which Sicka Than Average was among the three featured blogs). For the occasion, Celia San Miguel, Sicka Than Average founder, wore Sobral’s Cantalago Rio-inspired bangle bracelet ($72) to add a bold pop to her minimalist flesh-toned dress. This fashionable event was hosted at the Stone Rose Lounge in the TWC, where guests swayed to the latest radio jams and perused the array of delicious appetizers, all whist enjoying a beautiful view of central park. A major highlight of the event was a raffle, whose items included a Sobral Pop Art Bangle ($50), and a pair of Sobral Chic Shock Encanto Earring($58).

Lucky Magazine's June-July 2011 Issue Features Sobral Rilma Necklace

The weather is getting hotter, and while the Memorial holiday weekend is over, the good news is that summer is officially here! For me and my girlfriends, summer is synonymous with balmy days, blue skys, and the latest issues of our fashion bibles. This month's June-July issue of one of my favorites, Lucky Magazine, is hot off the press, offering a spread on how to stay stylish, despite summer's the heat and humidity. Sun dresses and summer shifts--practical, yet ever-stylish staples--are displayed in bold colors, matching the joyful attitude of the summer season. These simple silhouettes are the perfect canvas to make a bold statement with accessories. Lucky suggests the Sobral Rilma necklace from the designer’s Naturals collection ($90) as the perfect compliment to a simple indigo shift. This hand-made necklace features seven polished black sections, made of a natural lightweight resin, and strung together on a black cord with an adjustable clasp. Add this piece to your summer wardrobe for a fresh update any number of your favorite dresses and outfits.

Music Innovator Pharrell Williams Styles Plum Magazine Cover Shoot Using Sobral Bangles

Fashion and music merged seamlessly in this month’s May-June issue of the Miami based Plum Magazine when music mogul Pharrell Williams was called in as the creative director for the magazine’s cover. The cover features actress Rachael Roberts dressed in a bright fuchsia bikini and draped in bold Sobral bangles. Each of these items was personally chosen by Pharrell. The concept for the shoot was based off the idea of pixilation. Here the pixilated-effect of the cover’s background is created by cupcakes, chosen because they are the very embodyment the “sensual, sweet, loving and fun” vibe Pharrell was aiming for. The vivid colors of the sweet treats perfectly compliment the Sobral bangles and colorful wardrobe rocked by Rachel Roberts.
