Here's a look at some of my favorite labels: 

 

Soffer Ari Collection

The Soffer Ari Collection, designed by Ari Soffer of Beverly Hills, includes more than 500 pieces illustrating the progression of design styles and techniques in Ari Soffer's creations.  It includes exceptional jewelry-sets, as well as an outstanding collection of pendants, rings, and belt buckles.  Besides fleur and crosses, are romantic pieces like the From Within heart design.  There are other creations both decorative and functional: accessories for men and women such as the luggage and computer bags, precious photo albums and customized premium denim and leather desk weights.  All items are proudly made in the USA.

Check out the heavy celbrity traffic his label got:

Jessica Pastor for Avril Lavigne- Jessica was thrilled to find the photo album that Avril was searching for to place her cherished wedding photos into.  Ari's customized photo albums are hand made and take over 2 months to complete and retail for just under $7,000 and only available by special order.

Paul Oakenfold chose the Don't Fuck Around Bloody Miles Buckle in 22K Yellow Gold, Emeralds and Pave Diamonds.  He also was a fan of the Dainty OG Cross Envelop Ring with Don't Fuck Around Skull in 18K Yellow gold and Pave Diamonds.  And also a favorite item-- the new Don't Fuck Around Knuckles in Silver, with 2K of Emeralds and 1/2K in Diamonds.  'I have a tendency to lose my most expensive pieces that I like the most ' like these pieces [by Ari Soffer]' said Paul.   He definitely has fine taste in jewelry.

Fergie and her stylist pulled the heavy bracelet's to match her 60's gown for the Grammy's... Tried on the XL version of the Perfect Collateral SA Cross Bracelet with Sapphires and Diamonds galore. 'Fergie loves heavy chains especially to contrast with the femininity of the dress'.

Robert Trujilo from legendary rock icon band Metallica went wild for Ari's jewelry, particularly the new line of luggage pieces including the SA Leather Mailed Fist Bags (also a favorite of Randy Jackson in the Camo Leather and Taboo of Black Eyed Peas loved the bag and matching leather pants in Camo Leather which retailed at $7000).  Retail price is $3,173.  

Akon is a huge fan of S.A. Leather he just wore it for his photo shoot in YRB magazine.  His favorites are the buckles -- that range from $1,040 to $83,000.   Below is the Limited Edition XL Machine USA Buckle and was produced in limited number (100 total) and retails for $1,015 just the buckle.

 Ashley from the Pussycat Dolls loved the white gold bracelet w/ diamonds and pink sapphires, and LOVES skulls as posted by MTV.com today.  She chose the Razor Blade Black Pendant in 18K White Gold and Pave Diamonds that retails for $11,273 (see image below) and on her wrist the Dainty Don't Fuck Around Bracelet with 10 Pave Diamonds including 2 skulls on Clasp with Diamonds and retails for $17,887.

Paula Abdul loved the Diamonds and borrowed some for the weekend. Her favorites were the various diamond earrings including the Tiny SA Earrings with Dainty Cocaine Eyes Dangle and Diamonds in 18K Gold which retail for $3,180. Other favorites include the Don't Fuck Around Bracelet in 18K Yellow Gold and Pave Diamonds with Emerald Eyes, retailing for $46,171.  Also the Tiny Fleur Earrings with E.C.

Kyri

Kyri Kyriacou with his creations

Kyri Kyriacou is Britain's "King of Frocks" thanks to his unrivalled Ready-to-Wear Collection, Couture Service and celebrity fan base.  Kyri's designs are synonymous with unfettered glamour, over the top sex appeal and captivating curves. He has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame thanks to the high esteem in which he is held by a bevy of A-List celebrities and trendsetters alike.  His amped up designs infamously bring the kind of attention every woman wants when she steps onto the red carpet.  Kyri operates out of a showroom in Belgravia, London where he meets with his customers individually to create their ideal gown.  His signature look is one of unadulterated feminine allure.  Sleek pencil skirts, waist-accentuating tops and corsets, and plunging necklines are some of Kyri's favorite tricks. His is a style that harkens back to the days of legendary Hollywood Glamour.  His designs exude a fascination and adoration for the shape of a woman's body, and one cannot help but feel scandalously sensual when wrapped in a Kyri.

Camilla Designs

   
 
That need for freedom relates back to the 'Camilla' concept of style,' she says. 'At the same time as being glamorous I must feel comfortable, relaxed and free no matter what the occasion'
'I started by making quality garments for myself using off cuts of the very best fabrics.' Swathed in metres of Dolce & Gabbana or Roberto Cavalli, styled into the most glamorous of caftans, Camilla found the designs she had initially created for her own convenience and comfort in acting rehearsal were a sensation with the world's women 'When I was floating around the streets people were continually stopping me, asking me where I had bought them,' says Camilla.
'There were so many signs that I was on to something special.'

Australia's internationally famous actresses Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman own a Camilla.

Ted Baker

The 'No Ordinary Designer Label' story:
Having launched as a shirt specialist of some repute in Glasgow Ted Baker quickly became the place to buy some of the very best contemporary men's shirting around.

From the beginning Ted has had a very clear, unswerving, focus on quality, attention to detail and a quirky sense of humour, so much so in fact that the first stores used to provide a laundry service for every shirt purchased something that gained the quickly growing brand the title of 'No Ordinary Designer Label'. Everything produced under the Ted Baker name has his personality woven into its very heart.

As you would expect from Ted, the approach to marketing the brand remains the same as it was from day one ' primarily by word of mouth and out of the ordinary marketing. What other brand would give away Paxo stuffing at Christmas, a can of chocolate bunny hotpot for Easter, or even special world-cup 2006 football cards, Roy of the Rovers style? Ted remains one of the only brands to be built into an international designer label without an advertising campaign.

As Ted chooses not to advertise, he must do everything he can to support the collections in a more consistent, different and fun manner.
This season sees Ted take heed of both visually eclectic and historically inspirational culture. Gothic Soldiers, Urban Prep and Homespun Ranchers set the tone, within a fully outfitted collection of casual and formal-wear, to suit the fashion-forward gentleman.
