When designing our new J16 jewelry collection, we adopted the same considerations that we have for our clothes - balancing quality, aesthetics and attainability. We consider every 7115 piece to be an investment that lasts you a lifetime. So it was our aim to go beyond creating accessories that would only align with certain occasions. We wanted to create timeless pieces that add detail, texture and form to your everyday life.
Inspired by the world around us, we looked to the works of notable designers, architects and artists whose philosophies, innovations with shapes and thoughtful processes have transformed bare landscapes into unique and functional everyday environments. We looked at the way designer Dieter Rams proved good design was a marriage of aesthetics, understanding and simplicity. The way masterful architect Frank Gehry experimented with geometric forms to defy expectations. The way renowned sculptor Isamu Noguchi approached a variety of different materials - marble, stainless steel, granite, bronze, cast iron - to create emotionally charged sculptures, gardens, lighting fixtures and furniture. These are just a handful of the ideas and sensibilities that shaped how we thought about crafting jewelry to conform to your everyday movements.
In the same vein, we experimented with our placing our jewelry pieces alongside different shapes, textures and light for our lookbook shoot to turn blank landscapes into energetic environments. We hope that you enjoy exploring all the different ways that our J16 pieces can transform your everyday.
