REPOSSI CELEBRATES CURVED MINIMALISM IN FINEST GOLD. TRUE TO THE ATELIER’S 1920S BEGINNING IN TURIN, ITALY, ART NOUVEAU AND BAUHAUS CROSS THE CABLES AND INDUSTRIAL GRILLS OF MID CENTURY MODERNISM, AN ARCHITECTURAL PULSE RADIATES REPOSSI’S PRESENT DAY CRAFT. JUST AS MEMORY LINES FOLLOW THE CONTOURED CURVES OF LA LIGNE C COLLECTION, SO DO THE LATERAL BRACELET ARCHES BOW WITH SIMPLICITY OF STILL RETROSPECTION.
Masterfully solid in stature, Louis Vuittons’s earrings hang with a Bauhaus brutalism coined by Le Corbusier’s raw concrete architectural mastery. Gold cast coverts rawness into decadence and presence through sculptural quality holds true.
Repossi’s rings arch to Le Corbusier’s astute interiors and the reference prevails that jewelry follows memory through modern form. The laterally curved ring angles at a level to reflect peaking light and the minimalist form of the 5 ring monotype ring calls back a constructivist decade of utopian ideals.
Diane Kordas designs with a mindfulness of space that levitates white diamonds. Each piece unfolds with a succession of natural shapes beginning with the oval white diamond ring. The cocktail ring unravels into a simple gold cuff of dotted jewels. A chain peaked necklace mimics the awning of a modernist facade. As jewelry captures moments, Diane Kordas’ double looped ring recalls one loop from the past, one for the future, linked by one lateral diamond row that connects the present day chasm.
