Pieces of jewelry found of the ancient Egyptian queen's possession have fascinated females for thousands of years, and the Totomoto 2011 lookbook is surely a reference to the fashionable Cleopatra. With cuffs, rings, earrings and necklaces executed to a magnificent contemporary taste, designer Cynthia Ellis stirs up any remaining accessory envy to lie dormant in the tomb.

The opulent gilded embellishments take the forms of snakes, beetles, butterflies and flowers, inspired by parched deserts that situationally make such adornments look like truly luxurious belongings. The intricate gilded objects need no assistance to stand out, but the raw coastal setting of the campaign and the whitewashed linen clothing on the model ensure that, in the Totomoto 2011 lookbook, the spotlight is on the accessories.
