oday’s a big day for self-described accessorizers. Jewelry chests, meet Bevel Trunk Shows! Bring me your weary, done, and over-it adornments. Here come the designs that trickle up to influence personal style trends, and Bevel’s got it all well before they hit mass production.
These days there are so many members-only sites that the mechanic itself is no longer original. (Even Gilt has gone in a more flash sales direction than its original sample sale inspiration.) The distinction between each .com lies completely in the curation and collections they offer. Bevel’s powered by the discerning palette of former Bergdorf, Bloomies, Saks, ShopBop, Elle, and WWD buyers and editors. This ain’t no meet-a-quota assortment.
To kick things off, Bevel’s giving away one exclusive piece every day for its first seven days. The first pièce de résistance hits you smack in the face with color and light:
I’d imagine it’s like wearing Pop Rocks.
Aurelia Cotton and Patrick Culpepper of PepperCotton create these super wearable bracelets with mesh tubing and authentic Swarovski crystals (of course). Take it from a girl who rebelliously wore rainbow shades from a Claire’s outlet in seventh grade when sunglasses weren’t allowed because she just didn’t give a fuck – I have seen PepperCotton’s work in person and I like it!

This is just the beginning of a weekly refresh. Each designer is creating a Bevel-exclusive collection of ten styles in a limited run two hundred pieces, max. Purchases are handmade, and your order arrives within four weeks. In the spirit of convenience: Free shipping and returns for thirty days. In the world of indie commerce, those are rare amenities.
With great merch and a great team, Bevel’s on its way. Check it out, enter to win, and hopefully you’ll get to add PepperCotton to your next #armparty!
