Ladybug Vintage, LLC is a finely edited collection of vintage jewelry and accessories. Launched in 2009 by Stuart Dyer, the unique and eclectic collection blends her lifelong passion for vintage treasure hunting with her expertise in the worlds of fashion and design. Focused primarily on the international glamour and country club chic eras of the 60’s and 70’s — whimsy, refinement and insouciance are the hallmarks of the Ladybug Vintage collection. Growing up in Main Line, Philadelphia, Dyer’s aesthetic has always been classic with a twist.
Bold colors and statement jewelry inform both her personal style and the Ladybug Vintage collection. Inspiration comes from icons like Grace Kelly, Lee Radziwill, and Fleur Cowles – women with an innate sense of glamour and daring who could take one special piece – a scarf, a lariat, a gorgeous set of cuff bracelets and create a completely effortless and individual look.
Since launching in 2009, Dyer’s pieces have been worn by fashionable ladies all over the world. Additionally, Ladybug pieces have be acquired by celebrities, archivists at fashion houses (Gucci, Kenzo) and Institutions (Museo Della Montagna, Turin Italy). Dyer’s mission is to present vintage as something special but accessible. Dyer believes that wearing vintage enables a woman to express a bit of her own creativity and not see herself coming and going. Ladybug’s clientele are encouraged to make their own rules and to do so with confidence and flair.
