Spring/Summer 2017

This past year, I was lucky enough to enjoy two trips to Mexico: the first with my guy to beautiful Tulum, and the second with him and my parents to Nuevo Vallarta and Sayulita. I'm always reminded of the colourful way in which people express themselves in this beautiful country. Architecture, clothing, art - everything is bright, bold, and daring. 

For a long time now, I've had a sort of fascination with Frida Kahlo and her art. I'm incredibly inspired by (and slightly jealous of) her sense of self and individuality. Especially in the 1940s-50s when women were often silenced in popular culture, Kahlo was an incredible female historical voice, and she also had impeccable taste in jewelry. I wanted to create a collection with her bold spirit in mind that is inspired by her culture and country. 

Here's some of the inspo images that have been floating around my studio throughout the creation process. Looking forward to sharing the finished products with all of you soon!
