In the early 20th century, an art movement called Suprematism saw artists rebelling against tradition in search of art’s core essentials. The result was the eventual use of the barest motifs, such as rectangles and circles against monochrome backgrounds. This ethos, and the appreciation of vivid colors and architectural lines, is behind Monaco-based jewelry line Crystalline. Launched by two friends, Elena Kosenkova and Kira Pokhiton, who met whilst working at Tatler and Vogue respectively, this is a jewelry line that doesn’t fuss around. Their pieces are instantly recognizable, both sleek and sculpted, futuristic and avant garde. Hand-crafted in Italy, each piece is a miniature artwork. This season the duo were inspired by Kazimir Malevich, and focused the collection on earrings and brooches alone. Truly pared back essentials.
