Elke Kramer is a name synonymous with style. Her jewellery is immediately recognisable, the kind of pieces that garner unrestrained compliments and green-eyed admiration from random strangers every time you wear them. Her latest collection, Colour of the Wind, is unique in the truest sense of the word.
The autumn/winter collection is inspired by Bauhaus colour theorists and the way colour and shapes can convey and evoke visual poetry. Mechanical and organic influences are married in a celebration of colour and shape.
The collection is composed primarily of resin and metal. The colour palette scans white through to deep green and ruby red. Think oversized bracelets that look like mechanical cogs crossed with the petals of a flower – geometric but soft.
There are necklaces composed of miniature, architecturally sound, brass and white resin lanterns dangling on regal, snowy ropes. Her rings are tiny pieces of wearable art, from resin baubles and art deco puzzles to cylinder-rod cages. Luxurious digitally printed silk and cotton scarves in brilliant floral and geometrical patterns complete the collection.
The campaign was shot by Christopher Morris.
The collection will be available online and in selected boutiques nationwide from March 2011.
