AW09 Dark Tales

'Her blood runs like mercury... Her tears like ice set onto her pale skin, her dark eyes multiply the distant moon'

The story of a powerful Samurai Princess who battles with revenge in the nightfall and seeks redemption in the moon, drives this collection. The combination of black hair-like fringing and feminine swirls of beads with dark structured silhouettes are punctuated by shimmering surfaces of hematine and plated metals. Traditional Japanese armour and knots are reinterpreted for contemporary jewellery with new materials like shock-cord elastic to create a sport-luxe edge.
