The Things We Keep SS16 Collection: RITUAL. Inspired by the fluidity of our movements, processes and surroundings, distilled into deeply personal heirloom jewelry.
The Things We Keep AW15 collection: ALTA MIRA. Inspired by studies of cave paintings during the early stone age, 'Alta Mira' explores how a series of relatively simplistic shapes, figures and forms come together to paint vivid stories of triumph, hardship, joy and despair. On their own, a vague grouping of lines, circles, arcs and other varied shapes, but together they create something universally meaningful, to far outlast their intended generation, to become something greater than the whole of its parts.
The Things We Keep SS15 collection: TOTALITARITY. Inspired by studies of the Bauhaus movement and school of thought, but upturned with an ironic twist; whereas the Bauhaus pioneered design within a mass production culture by sharply departing from adornment, nostalgia or sentimentality, the designs reflected in Totalitarity pares down only to the essentials. Free of any superfluity, the pieces become innately intrinsic, sentimental and timeless, none of which are machine made and all of which will become heirloom pieces, deeply and completely rooted in sentimentality.
The Things We Keep AW14 collection: TREATISE. A set of guiding principles compiled from a shared code of emotions, shapes and intuition inspires heirlooms to be love and shared on a deeply personal level.
