Usually design collaborations takes months if not years to get off the ground, but Nicole Miller’s partnership with Indego Africa was such a natural fit, it only took a week to design eight bracelets! Indego Africa works to empower women in Rwanda by selling their handmade accessories and returning profits to the women. Nicole came up with the concept for the line of bracelets, and the artisans in Rwanda co-designed them based on her vision. “I love to combine colors and pieces unexpectedly and wear several different types of jewelry pulled together for a different look,” Nicole says. She recommends wearing the bracelets during the day, to the office and on weekends. “They’re more casual and look best in sets of three.”

The Nicole Miller Indego Africa bracelets costs $20 for a set of three bangles and will be available at the Nicole Miller SoHo store (212-219-1825) starting on Thursday night.
