Uber creative and talented accessories designer Anita Quansah is out with her A/W Collection. Anita’s pieces are big, bold and intricately crafted. We love that she keeps it fresh with every collection while still maintaining her brands aesthetic.
“The latest collection is based on two subjects the film Avatar and works by Valentim Quaresma, artist and designer, known for his use of industrial materials in his work.
I wanted to create a collection that has an earthy feel to it, but looks industrial at the same time. Hence the use of semi precious stones and beads fused with hardware such as bolts, nuts, and safety Pins and washers, things used every day by human but used in an unconventional way to create show stopping statement pieces.
Like the film Avatar focusing on the close relationship or interaction between culture and civilization, I touched on this but focusing primarily on the recycled components making them edgier yet feminine at the same time, fusing them with bright hues.”- Anita Quansah
