The collection ‘The Only Performance’ is my homage to London – and its dark, hidden depths.
Initially inspired by the film ‘Performance*’, I conjured up a world of bad behaviour; a world inhabited by fallen rock stars, gangsters and creatures of the night. A world that explored sex, power and the boundaries of masculinity.
My research led me from characters such as Mick Jagger and the Kray Twins through the work of artists such as George Bellows, Brassai and Robert Mapplethorpe, to the writings of the Marquis De Sade, amongst others.
It was important for me in this collection that the designs were something of a celebration of the very gold they were made from. I wanted a collection of clean, pure, graphic and strong shapes. Unapologetic designs that gave their wearer the darkly thrilling sensations I had conjured up in my narrative.
This earring design developed from the idea that a shard of gold could flow through and around the ear, in a continuous, unbroken line. I wanted the shape to have both strong, stark, knife-edge lines as well as the feeling of fluidity and volume.
