When Twin visited Fashion Sunday at Oval Space recently, we fell for Jessie Harris’s jewellery designs. Even more so when she shed light on her most recent collaboration with another Twin favourite, Danielle Foster. Having met last summer, the two designers recognised similarities in each others design ethos, both favouring strong, clean shapes and a minimal, modern aesthetic. “Danielle was really interested in working on some custom bag hardware, which was the starting point and a perfect bridge between our different areas of design,” stated Jessie. “From there we discussed creating a small jewellery collection that followed on from and reflected the shapes of the hardware.”
With a focus on clutch bags with solid brass clasps, in either matte black, mock crock or an inky blue and black leather, the D – ring shape was then echoed on to earring and rings: “We wanted to keep the jewellery element of the collaboration really cohesive and concise which was a really interesting challenge as I’ve never worked on a jewellery collection of only 4 key styles before.” Each piece is available in either yellow gold or silver, adding some diversity and allowing the designs to be worn as single, statement pieces or even stacked and combined for a different look.
Released in Autumn, we predict this collaboration will be a big hit.
