Here is finally a project I wanted to share with you for a long time! It all began back in Berlin during Fashion Week in January (do you remember?) where Bernard and I met up to discuss our project as well as him handing me over the jewelry pieces he had brought with him from New York. Bernard started making jewelry a bit over three years ago. All the jewelry is hand crafted in New York City and out of sterling silver and genuine leather. The pieces are simple yet a statement and they go with every outfit! Ever since I received them I have been wearing them a lot, whether it was with a casual or an elegant look, they always seem to match perfectly.
Up until now I found it really challenging to find good jewelry for men! A lot of them look sort of childish, are poor quality or too casual, but Bernard James’ designs are sophisticated, versatile and quality-wise amazing. Definitively make sure to check out his jewelry.
For this shooting we envisioned a simplicity in terms of clothing that would allow you to see the force of each of the jewelry pieces. We were inspired by the Saint Laurent jewelry campaign and kept most of the pictures in black and white.
Let’s stay in touch!
