Discovery Monday: Jordan Askil
I fell in love with Jordan Askil’s incredible jewellery at LFW’s Rock Vault and wish I had a spare £6,000 to lavish on his more intricate pieces.
Jordan studied in Sydney before working for Dior and Ksubi…and then setting up his own label. I love his efforts to work with ethical stones and the sculptural qualities of his pieces. His AW12 collection is inspired by: “Sun and rainbows on a cold day behind the clouds; shapes emerging out of water; being able to collect.”
I was in awe of the horse cuffs, which reminded me of ancient jewellery, as well as the huge sculptural bird necklaces. I can’t imagine they would be terribly comfortable to wear but I think the discomfort would be worth it!
