The Spring/Summer 2017 collection is inspired by the bold and daring spirit of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Hailey has, for a long time, been a fan of Frida’s art and her ﬁerce sense of self. Her individual style and disregard for cultural norms stands as an inspiration for many. She was, and still is, an integral part of Mexico’s cultural identity and her ability to bring truth to art is something greatly admired.
Always dripping in jewels, this collection was created with Frida in mind. It’s bright colour palettte reﬂects her Mexican roots. Colour waves include Amazonite, Lapis, Howlite, and heat-treated Cubic Zirconia in yellows and champagnes.
The collection is created in Hailey’s signature style, working with recycled vintage brass chains from warehouses throughout Canada and the United States and pairing them with the highest quality semi-precioust stones. All stones are hand-cut in India, where Hailey works directly with artisans to create custom stones, exclusive to the Hailey Gerrits collection.
