Elements got a facelift! Gone are the days of the classic cluster that defined this collection.
This season I combined the aesthetics of classic Baroque designs and American Indian art. It’s another combination that I’ve never seen before. When an editor asked what I was designing for Spring and I mentioned the inspiration for the Elements Collection, she looked at me cross eyed. She couldn’t understand how these two sensibilities would marry.
There are lots of details. For instance, the custom cut stones, the two-tone encrusted metal, and the figure references of the eagle, all make the line stand out in an unexpected way. And it continues to straddle between the “Bohemian Girl” and a “Classic 1960’s Gal”.
