The book contains profiles of 33 international jewellers as well as details of their collaborations with fashion designers including Comme des Garçons, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Yves St Laurent.
‘Fashion Jewellery’ by Maia Adams
Lara Bohinc and Erickson Beamon were invited to take part in this exhibition along with Pamela Love, Tom Binns, Parure, Marion Vidal, Scott Wilson, Bless, Yoshido, Florian and Sabrina Dehoff. I was privileged to see the exhibition during Paris Fashion Week.
Lara Bohinc’s piece is called: ‘Love will Tear us Apart’ and, according to Lara, is inspired by " sand dunes and sea creatures, rippling water and sun rays".
Erickson Beamon’s piece was used by Ashley Isham at London Fashion week, "It goes with the huge trend for strong shoulder silhouettes. Accentuated shoulders are big right now and we have a collection that has a very medieval and gladiator type look so it was really combining these two things. Erickson Beamon are famous for very large extravagant bespoke pieces like this, we often make them specifically for catwalk shows or fashion shoots".
