We admit it, we’re suckers for a cool presentation. And we love how bold graphics, and a gorgeously styled model can add to a brand’s narrative. So particularly enjoyed the lookbook from Little Rooms’ newest collection: Yesterday’s Tomorrow.

Yesterday’s Tomorrow, by Los Angeles native Ester Delug of Little Rooms Jewelry, is a mix of styles, from the Art Deco revival of the Technological ’60s, to the era’s fascination with UFO’s and the like.

Celestial symbolism inspired by popular retro futuristic literature of that era is seen throughout the collection. Pieces featuring a nod to  Voyager’s Golden Records (still orbiting in space and created in case of alien contact), are translated into a dangling disc charms etched with the records’ same markings.

The 24-piece Yesterday’s Tomorrow collection is a “visitation into a past of exuberance, glamour and the faith in social and technological progress.” There also nods to flying objects, including UFO’s with dangling “rays”. Metals and jewels are equally important, and signet and stacking rings are meant to be worn in multiples.

Delug created Little Rooms in 2007, taking a break then re-launching in 2016. The brand’s name comes from Delug’s childhood hobby of creating intricate dollhouses from cardboard. She started her jewelry career assistant designing licensed jewelry for such brands as Disney and later became Creative Director at fine jewelry house Jacquie Aiche.

Today, Delug cites her biggest inspirations as architecture, science fiction, and vintage animation.Little Rooms - Yesterday's Tomorrow
