Stine Goya and artist John Kørner have a mutual fascination with colours and the magic they create when combined in new ways. This led to a print collaboration earlier this year which was integrated with Goya’s autumn/winter 2015 collection, and now they have raised the collaboration several notches and created something new: a piece of jewellery art. The neckpiece, made of handcrafted glass, is designed to encircle the neck, with the asymmetrical piece gently flowing toward the collarbone. We really like the organic shape and how fragile the statement piece appears. The shape merges the colours together gently and unpredictably. The piece, called Lanterna, is available in a limited edition of 60 unique pieces, with each one individually numbered and signed.
When the models strolled down the runway in Paris, we saw an urbane and sporty collection in the delicate drapes and fabrics that we have come to expect from Sacai, but with a twist. Sophie Bille Brahe had, together with Chitose Abe, Sacai’s creative director, created a collection of deconstructed jewellery to add a certain touch to this delicate look. The collaboration seemed obvious since Abe had been a great fan of the Danish jewellery brand and can be seen wearing their pieces often.
The jewellery consists of original Sophie Bille Brahe designs that have been deconstructed into pieces that seem broken (on purpose). This can be seen in pieces such as the Croissant Claire earring with the dropped diamond, which is hanging loose on a gold string. We are super-excited about these rather avant-garde pieces, and we can’t keep from jumping for joy when told that they will be available in Sacai stores worldwide.
