It’s no secret, I love detective stories. I thrive on Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade, The Continental Op and Roderick Alleyn, and summer brings out the yen even more. Irresponsible beach reading, and all that. My fixation has led me to launch a new series of jewelry, Noir, using light and shadow as design concepts. Watch for it, it’s coming… Besides, some detective fiction novels are exquisite works of literature in their own right: The Maltese Falcon, Mystic River, The Long Goodbye, etc., etc. And even if they’re trash, the lure of light vs. dark is irresistable. This week, for love of the gumshoes, some accessories that prove you can still be sexy, even on a stakeout.
