Designing and creating has taken on a new meaning this year. Through the sense of collective upheaval, the lens of innovation and experimentation has taken a more abstract edge contradicted by a sense of orderliness in straight, simple lines. Photography & photographs was a point of inspiration. Consumed endlessly during these times, not only as a distraction, but, as a window of discovery.
From the inception of this collection, Dora Maar's surrealist images and photo collages struck a chord. In referencing her work, we have come to realise that what we wear has always revealed our values and aspirations especially in times of upheaval and turbulence. Jewellery has and always will be a potent visual marker of our times.
