SIMPLE, ENDURING HOME DESIGN

Emil Dresser - HKD 18,600

 

From Baroque to Bauhaus, the pages of design history have for centuries illustrated a move from elaborate decoration to more pared-back, refined design. And while craft was briefly overlooked during the Industrial Revolution, we’re seeing a jubilant return in many countries to their heritage of skilled joinery.

 

 

This symbiosis of refinement and craft is the hallmark of PINCH. The UK-based furniture and interiors company was established in 2004 by designers Oona Bannon and Russell Pinch, the latter of whom worked under the iconic Terence Conran. The pair sought simply to create furniture they wanted to live with — timeless pieces that reflect their quiet, elegant aesthetic. Each piece is meticulously crafted of only the highest-quality materials, exemplifying their dedication to process.

 

  

Elan Sycamore Cupboard HKD138,100 |  Soren Pendant Light HKD12,900

 

The duo’s collection of cabinetry, beds, chairs and tables all demonstrate a modern aesthetic, with some of the joinery nodding to a more rustic, almost Shaker style. These are complemented with a collection of lighting and mirrors that artfully draw together materials as diverse as copper, tulipwood, linen and banana fibre.

 

PINCH is now available at Lane Crawford Pacific Place Home Store and online at lanecrawford.com.

NEW WAYS TO WEAR ARTISANAL JEWELLERY

This summer, jewellery is all about maximal statements. From stacking up pieces and matching gold with silver to the return of the chain, it’s enjoying a more-is-more moment, and John Hardy has embraced it in the brand’s latest bijouterie offerings.


Stacking jewellery gives a rock ‘n roll edge to any outfit, whether multiple rings on each finger, countless bangles and bracelets or several necklaces layered one on top of the other — and you can show off your most enviable items all at once. The trend works well with finer filigree items for a more delicate look or chunky items for a bold look, and John Hardy’s handcrafted designs for both women and men offer statement bold rings, chains, necklaces and rings that stack perfectly.

Style guides used to advise steering clear of mixing silver and gold, but the new trends throw the rule book out the window. John Hardy’s Lahar collection is full of silver pieces inspired by the brand’s home of Bali and the wild energy of volcanic lava found there. Lahar showcases white and grey wild diamond accents and can be worn with the brand’s signature gold pieces like the Legends Naga collection.


One of this summer’s key items is the chain. Evoking a distinctly 90s streetwear vibe in silver or a 70s vintage gold chunky look, it’s back and packing a stylish punch. John Hardy’s newly released Tiga — a reimagining of the Classic Chain — comes in both silver and gold, from necklace to bracelets and rings, and can be set with diamonds and gemstones. The chains are designed in the brand’s Ubud studio and created by Balinese artisan families.

Sustainability is also in the headlines, and since John Hardy’s launch in 1975 the brand has placed eco-friendly, sustainable luxury design at its heart. Canadian John Hardy founded his studio in Bali based on its jewellery making traditions, working alongside more than 700 local artisans — including many women and people from underprivileged backgrounds, as shown in the video — to create collections renowned for evoking Indonesian culture and legends. The brand plants bamboo seedlings for every item purchased from the Bamboo Collection, its packaging is FSC-certified, and all stones, diamonds and metals are conflict-free and ethically produced, ensuring that each collection is as ethical as it is luxurious.

DREAMS OF INDIGO

For high resolution images and more information, please download here.

 

The ebb and flow of trends have largely left denim alone. What weaves in and out of fashion now, is the cut. The rise. The washes. The shape and flare of the leg. How it’s worn and styled.

 

Trusty and familiar, Acne Studios’ Blå Konst line-up is stacked with beautifully classic cuts. This season’s straight-leg trends towards slim-fitting but not skinny, with enough room to slide a pair of ankle boots on underneath.

 

 

Opt for grunge with Amiri’s hand-sanded, hand-distressed, hand-repaired collection, styled smart with a blazer. And for those who appreciate a touch of craftsmanship, seek out FDMTL’s patchworked pairs, with heritage-driven sashiko-stitched embroidery.

TRENDING: DENIM

For high resolution images and more information, please download here.

 

 

The plain white tee. The little black dress. The classic blue jean. The wear-everywhere pump. Sartorial hall-of-famers may be immune to the circus of trends, but seasonal cuts (i.e. the bootcut pant) and styling variations (i.e. The Canadian tuxedo) are controversial, and come with different, very opinionated camps.

 

To make double denim work for you, start by choosing denim jackets and this season’s favourite straight leg jeans in different washes Acne Studios, Frame Denim, Mother, and J Brand are your best bets for finding that perfect, made-for-you fit.

Jonathan Simkhai (patchworked), Stella McCartney (monogram-washed), and Amiri (hand-distressed) will round up the very last of your indigo dreams.

What better way to celebrate summer than to inject some verve into your space? LA-born, Milan-based fashion editor-turned-designer JJ Martin has given us the template for a happy bedroom or a convivial kitchen, with her brand La DoubleJ’s bold colours, confident prints and classic materials. 

 

 

The brand is leading something of a renaissance, with Martin channelling the spirit of her adopted country and its iconic designer Ettore Sotsass. The Memphis Group founded by the late designer was famed in the 1980s for its approach that drew on diverse strands of modernism to create pieces that indulged in colour and pattern.

 

 

 

La DoubleJ’s take combines a strong, modern colour palette with classic flora and fauna motifs (including some timeless blue-and-white porcelain) as well as modern geometric patterns. Materials are a key element: bedding is breathable cotton, while tableware is classic ceramic and porcelain. For those who like a subtle approach to homewares, La DoubleJ’s pieces make for an occasional striking accent; those up for an all-in approach can paint their homes in vibrant colours and clashing prints.
