Mysticism of ancient legends and surrealism of modern sci – fi odyssey are the keys that encapsulate the poetry, romance and futurism bewitched in Bjorg Jewellery. This is very unique and exceptional line not only because of its eco friendly approach or dedication to craftsmanship tradition. The concept that balances between fine and raw is the key to the mystery of Bjorg jewels. Surrealistic inspirations infused with Charles Darwin’s point of view and ancient truths of mythology summarize nomadic approach and industrial touch of accessories. That is probably because of the origins, creative background in art and inspirational life of the creator of the Bjorg Jewellery Bjorg Nordli Mathisen. As the supporter of nomadic lifestyle and everlasting traveling he searches for creative stimulus around the world. From the origin of Bjorg Jewellery in 2004 Bjorg releases two conceptual collections per year. The latest line for 2012 entitled “Not all those who wander are lost” sounds like a proverb of wisdom whispered by the ancient prophets. You may feel these insubstantial powers through stunning lookbook conveying dreamlike scenarios of Misty Mountains where the time stopped in one point keeping the presence of Dark Knights and Beautiful Maidens captured in Arthurian Legends. The jewels reveal deep admiration for precious stones with iridescent colours, horsehair and feathers, claws, wings, chains and intricacy of spine construction and relic pieces.
Sylvio Giardina is a very creative designer who successfully joins the concept of synergy in fashion and art. His renowned signature originates from the form of visual art implemented on the ensemble. As he proved before (see FW collection) the clothes has innovative feel, sculptural forms, always chic and elegant. Sylvio Giardiana is one of those designers that experiment, invents and reinvents the costume structure with amazing results giving a fresh point of view into the definition of elegance and style. Every single design resembles a journey into imaginative creations outlining captivating idea, fresh touch and unconventional use of fabrication.
As the sneak peak of the collection, the dress defined an infusion of traditional bridal concept with slightly deconstructed yet feminine feel of the line.
The main inspiration of the collection is based on the idea of veil and cloud resulting in constant flexibility and introduction of new aesthetics for the female silhouettes. There is a visible treatment of the ensemble like a sculpture piece. Enriched with a summer palette of white, black, orange, copper, light blue and green the garment has a specific fluidity and subtle dynamism of shapes that redefine a female body. It is some kind of futuristic elegance interlaced into improved traditional lines. The practicality of softness and sinuous volumes release a freedom of movement through apparels making the collection very wearable. The crucial core of the collection is to highlight the sphericity of the female silhouette for the purpose of body comfort. This specific amenity results from the use of the unconventional mix of fabrication – polytene foam and jersey forming quite futuristic idea of the renewed classical construction. There is also an impact of luxury with the drops of Swarovski crystals embellished on the garment. As the collection enhances freedom of body movement, military uniforms inspire the significant pieces.
