At the heart of the collaboration lays a mutual respect for each other’s work. Christian has developed a passion for fine jewelery and Marion has always been fascinated by the use of shapes and materials, so characteristic of the Belgian designer’s work. A set of similar inspirations could only bring the two former alumni from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts together.
In Christian Wijnants’ AW17 collection, fragments of the Orient result in eccentric and colourful prints. This built the framework for the Parisian jewelry designer’s collection of earrings. Marion Vidal’s style is characterized by an unconventional approach to jewelry. Her creations act as a close dialogue between colour and material, which then merge into distinct geometric figures, a vision that is entirely in touch with Christian Wijnants' view of fashion.
A second capsule collection is already in the works for July 2018.
