Aalto works with French jewellery designer, Sébastien Joffrey Monfort to accessorise the Spring/Summer 2019 show

The Aalto woman for Spring/Summer 2019 is a strong and confident work force in the office. Co-founder and designer, Tuomas Merikoski tells WWD, "We're really looking at the perspective of the business woman. She's powerful, and she's the CEO or in that kind of environment, with that kind of attitude—the powerfulness of women has a lot of influence today." Her accessories of choice—a hands-free ear piece to pick up calls on the go, and a slim, metallic choker to decorate her neckline in Aalto's relaxed powersuits. The jewellery were in fact designed by French designer, Sébastien Joffrey Monfort. The neck adornments are delicate and slender, contrast to the the strong, firm character dreamed up by Tuomas Merikoski. Bare and industrial yet simple and sophisticated—the key here being balance (and also the secret to career success). The only question now is, gold or silver finish?
