The Arcadia Collection
Arcadia has been mythologized since ancient times as a place where humans live freely in a pocket of idyllic nature. Unlike other utopias, however, Arcadia is real—a small region in Greece. What fascinates me most is that, through artistry and philosophy, the idea of Arcadia has become more powerful than the place itself.
Some things never get old. The idea of Arcadia—beauty, harmony, idealism—is within all of us to this day. It is a plain of spontaneous thought and vivid imagining, colored by the exuberance of life lived naturally. Unbound by coordinates or prescribed style, it is both global and personal, wild or manicured, modern and timeless. Arcadia is what you make it.
For me, Arcadia is joie de vivre—a way of being. With this collection, I wanted to create pieces that captured this: joyful, bright and striking, but natural and classic too. Echoes of classicism can be seen throughout, in fact, but our bohemian-luxe aesthetic has not been forgotten. Even the sustainably sourced pearls, horn and wood are infused with vitality through sculptural shapes and playful formations. After all, what would joie de vivre look like without bursts of color and a dash of the unexpected?
The result is a mixture of jewelry for almost every occasion, from lazy afternoons to late night revelry, unified by the idea that life is beautiful if you let it be.
