C W Sellors has unveiled House Style, a new collection which celebrates five centuries of fashion at Chatsworth House.
Inspired by five centuries of fashion at Chatsworth House, the new collection draws upon the striking jewellery owned and worn by family over the generations; from exotic headdresses to glittering diamond tiaras and the renowned insect brooches which belonged to Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire, the last of the celebrated Mitford sisters.
“It has been a privilege to create this jewellery range inspired by some of Chatsworth’s hidden gems,” says Chris Sellors, the company’s founder and managing director. “In doing so we share our affection and esteem for this incredible stately home and the past and present generations of the family who live there.”
The seventy-four piece House Style collection has been fashioned into distinct design styles which reflect the glamour, elegance and history encapsulated by Chatsworth. The Diamond Palmette range is based on the famous Devonshire Lotus and Plamette diamond tiara, while the Chatelaine collection transforms another treasure on display at the exhibition into a series of sterling silver pendants. Elsewhere, the Chatsworth Heritage range turns the House Style logo into a pendant and brooch, and Inspired by a Duchess brings to life insect motifs.
Pieces have been designed by founder and managing director, Chris Sellors, and his daughter, Hot 100 Trendsetter Rebecca Sellors. The duo worked closely with Lady Burlington, married to the Duke and Duchess’s elder son, William to make the exhibition pieces.
