Introducing world-renowned DJ Harley Viera-Newton, Swarovski Squad member and street-style fashionista
The epitome of devil-may-care cool, model and DJ Harley Viera-Newton was born in London and raised in Los Angeles, and spent her 20s in New York studying at NYU. Signed with Jay Z’s label Roc Nation, Harley can be found spinning at international fashion weeks and festivals such as Coachella. With a style praised from catwalks to streets around the globe, Harvey boasts cover girl status on magazines such as Vogue, Nylon, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Purple, Jalouse and more.
“I already sort of have a history with Swarovski,” says Harley. “I created a line of handbags with Judith Leiber using Swarovski crystals. I’ve actually DJed at a few CFDA events in collaboration with Swarovski, so there is definitely a relationship there.”
Harley goes for the asymmetric look, pairing the Fantastic ear jacket with a simple earring. “It’s my favourite jewellery trend,” says Harley. “With jewellery, you have to be really confident. If you’re wearing a huge earring, then wear a huge earring. It’s all about confidence as far as statement jewellery is concerned.” Harley completes the look with the Fantastic ring and Vittore ring, noting “I like to let a few pieces shine. It doesn’t always have to be a statement piece, it can just be a little subtle beautiful ring. It’s nice to just let one or two pieces speak on their own.”
“I feel like Swarovski can be very glam but also very cutting edge and suitable for every day , which is great,” shares Harley. “If you wear something you feel great in and that makes you feel comfortable – then you’re all set to take on the day.”
