Less is more’ - a notion of simplicity that has been personified to perfection in the second women’s jewellery collection from Mateo. Born from the mind of Matthew ‘Mateo’ Harris, the 80 plus piece strong collection pulls inspiration from the city of New York, his adopted home from the age of 16. It's clean, architectural bars of gold and silver interlink with natural precious stone and diamonds that captivate with minimal effort - a focal point of the Mateo aesthetic.
The purity of each individual piece makes this collection such a dream, there is no exception to detail, yet not a single element is overpowering or overdone. Even with the use of natural, raw materials such as onyx, diamond and malachite, Mateo successfully manages to reign in the extravagance by keeping lines to a minimum. A juxtaposition of purity and power in every sense.
It’s the structural shapes and stackable pieces that make up the collection on so many levels. It can be worn simply in the day to add a subtle touch of freshness with a single necklace, or layered in almost unlimited combinations to create stunning visual look that needs little help from clothing - and based on the look book, the pieces are really all you need to wear to look and feel incredible.
You may not have heard of him yet, but with features mounting up in the likes of publication royalty, you sure will soon.
Mateo has minimal mastered, sorry bank accounts, but this collection is too special to let pass.
This stunning new collection from The Branch incorporates their signature natural style with polished Rosewood and dazzling gems, with slick 70s shaping.
Key pieces include chunky wooden cuffs with showcase semi precious stones cut into an oval and mounted in gold.
The pieces combine raw natural beauty of materials with slick symmetrical shaping to create unique evening wear accessories. The sophisticated style and elegant finishing compliments delicate twisted rope and polished Rosewood, to give the pieces a taste of their Indonesian heritage.
Through its craftsmanship and mythology, John Hardy’s exquisite Naga collection brings us the spirit of the East straight from the grass roofed design centre in Bali. The collection awakens the legend of the Balinese dragon; the recurrence of scallop shaped scales on thick sterling silver and blood red ruby eyes breathes life into the ancient myth, whilst fluid curves give the dragons the appearance of flight. Blazing gemstones are encircled by the fiery dragons and haloed by diamonds on the collection’s large rings, oozing oriental mystery. According to the legend the dragon symbolises good luck and prosperity; it’s clear that any girl who wears this jewellery is certainly very lucky!
