Jewelry Designer Kyle Hopkins AW12 Collection
UK- London | Feb 26 2012 | (01:06:16 - EDT)
Kyle Hopkins is at the furthest point from jewelry-without-thought. Every piece is unique and heavy with meaning. He casts imagination and enquiry into his work, starting a story for someone else to finish. So when the jewel reaches its new owner, she just takes over the narrative.
In a mesmerizing debut commercial collection, Kyle Hopkins defies convention and cliché. He does not do so to rebel or to exclude, but to show that jewellery can do more than sparkle. Designed for a wide audience, and priced to be unintimidating, the range will be seen by each customer from a different perspective. And in the work she will find a story of her own.
The jewellery studies people, animals, plants and geometrical shapes. Some pieces have beauty in clean, simple lines. Others show romance in tiny, linked human beings, or hope in a twining flower. Others still are unflinchingly brutal, cast from bestial teeth and claws. What unites them all is depth.
Within each piece, lovers can be dreamt of, memories evoked and personalities defined. Whoever wears Kyle Hopkins must have their story ready, as the questions will come.
