‘Vincent’ is a tale about a darkly suave, dangerously sophisticated, Russian gangster – ruling London’s underworld with his enigmatic, fiery power. Vincent is an oligarch of the underground, the indisputable ruler of his own dark kingdom.
I imagine Vincent to be impeccably dressed, a gentleman through and through. You would perhaps just see the back of his perfectly tailored coat as he sped off down a dark alleyway, his hand-made boots clattering on the pavement.
The ‘facet’ motif appears throughout this collection, in many guises. The graphic lines and architectural sculpture were drawn from my explorations of Russian monumentalist architecture, 50’s Soviet propaganda graphics and post-modern Russian artists such as Malevich, amongst others.
What tied these references together for me were the brutalist lines, and clean graphic forms – they have incredible understated power. I wanted to capture this in a sculptural form within the jewels themselves. The aim was to create pieces that would uphold the strength of Vincent himself – a small nod to a life lived in dangerous decadence.
