BioHof Dush, a small organic farm located in Switzerland's Domleschg valley, is home to 20 gray suckler cows with their calves, a herd of sheep, a few pigs, and a flock of colorful chickens. So, naturally, it was the perfect location for stylist Victoria Sekrier and photographer Lukas Wassmann to prove the prevailing sentiment of the Spring 2018 collections: this season's most charming accessories and fine jewelry are all about fun. Whether it was juxtaposing the rugged locale with a refined emerald cuff by Swiss jeweler Christophe Berger, or pairing Fendi's signature Peekaboo bag with a particularly savvy Large Münsterländer (that's a dog), the proof is in pictures.
