Australian jewellers Sarah & Sebastian return with a covetable new collection, just in time for your new season wardrobe update
Lovers of delicate, art world-inspired jewellery take note: cult label Sarah & Sebastian has just released a new range of wear-anywhere pieces to its website. The collection, named Sol, was directly inspired by a visit to New York's Dia:Beacon museum by founders Sarah Gittoes and Robert Grynkofki. Taking inspiration from the work of American artists Fred Sandback and Sol Lewitt, creative director Sarah Gittoes was particularly drawn to the way Lewitt used geometric shapes in his art.
"I have always been interested in geometry and its role in art and design," she explains. "Lewitt's work felt like a natural fit to help me express this in the new collection." Geometry certainly plays a central part in the new collection, with circles, ovals, lines and triangles making up the bulk of the gold and sterling silver pieces. While all pieces sit within the minimalist aesthetic of Sarah & Sebastian, Gittoes has introduced a transparent sequin fabric for this collection. "Our aim was to reinvent the concept of luxury by using an unconventional material in a new and innovative way."
Together with the introduction of 3-D metal shapes (realised as beautiful pendants on chokers), the Sol collection pushes Sarah & Sebastian into a bolder direction. Renowned for its delicate, barely-there jewellery, this new range establishes the young label (launched in 2011) as a talent to watch.
Sarah & Sebastian's Sol collection is available now from selected stockists and at sarahandsebastian.com
