Modern jewel

Beauty


Ruby reds, sapphire blues and amethyst purples are usually reserved for the most retro of fashion moments, but Rita Liefhebber wasn’t thinking throwback when she created her jewel-toned fall clothing collection. Unveiled last March at Jonathan + Olivia on Ossington, her lineup of hand-dyed blouses in rich velvet and silk took the traditionally precious palette in an entirely contemporary direction. Liefhebber’s new approach to gemstone hues inspired this fall beauty look, plus a shopping list of autumn makeup (see page 14) that’s just as classic and fresh.
