When Danish jewellery designer Sophie Bille Brahe first met sacai’s Creative Director Chitose Abe at London’s Dover Street Market, both women were instantly drawn to one another, deciding to pair their cult brands together to create something extraordinary. The fruits of their collaboration are now available in a one-off jewellery capsule collection, exclusive to Lane Crawford.
Making its runway debut at sacai’s Spring Summer 2016 show in Paris, the collection reflects the predisposition that both designers have in taking familiar materials into unfamiliar realms. The crescent-shaped earrings are accented with diamonds and adorned with delicate gold-chain fringing attached to pure freshwater pearls. This creates a gentle, rippling movement and, like Abe’s designs, makes the pieces feel distinctly contemporary and conceptual. At once delicate and yet tough, the Sophie Bille Brahe and sacai union is truly a match made in pearl.
