Beatrice Holiday Goes Rock ‘N Roll

Posted: Jan 10 2013

Alisun Franson is a rock n’roll reinventionalist.  Known for her bicycle inspired eco-friendly and innovative line, Beatrice Holiday, Franson’s latest collection, “GILT RIDDEN” is for the fresh, fierce, femme fatale.

Featuring an array of accessories that flaunt Franson’s jaw-dropping ability to transform old into new, the collection was named using a chic play on words that spoke to the origins of her creative medium. Transforming upcycled bicycle materials into a new stunning set of jewelry pieces, Franson drew inspiration for “Gilt Ridden” from a familiarity with the inner tubing of a bike wheel. This is a material that she considers to be innate within her design work. Fusing the recycled inner tube with the edgy cool metal of a bike chain, the result culminated in a collection of accessories that is sure to snazz up any outfit by adding a dose of seriously badass attitude.

Collecting materials used from local bike shops, the collection is an intricate interplay of metal and tubing. Conceptualized as a wearable, but avante-garde collection, she plays and manipulates the two opposing mediums. Franson designed specifically with the fearless fashionista in mind.
