Think « Central Indian ceremonial jewels, Middle-Eastern ornamentation and byzantine gold and gemstone embellishments of gold and stones ».
That’s how South African designer Katherine Pichulik describes her latest range of jewellery and clothing, which imparts some sacred feminine wisdom for the modern woman.
Entrepreneur and designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik creates contemporary jewellery pieces inspired by African tribes and bold, brave women. Her new range for Spring/Summer 2017 takes her aesthetic to the North of the continent and is more eastward looking than previous PICHULIK collections.
Straying away from the PICHULIK traits that her pieces have become so well known for; vibrant blues, reds and yellows; this collection consists of a more muted palette as is evidenced in the visuals as well as the materials used which consist of organic materials like coral, shell & horn – where no two pieces are the same.
« This collection is incredibly feminine and the colours are softer because of the desert influences. I guess it’s because I am also in love at the moment and my general take on things is softer and gentler. We really wanted to pare the pieces down to the brand’s essence, which has always been considered materials, sensitive and attentive craftsmanship, and ancient wisdom, » adds Pichulik.
This SS17 collection also launches a new collaboration with Espadril, and a clothing range by designer Nadya von Stein that focusses on comfort and elegance.
