12 Mar SOUTH | Vivid Colours and Patterns in Henriette Botha’s AW15 Collection
Inspired by the vivid colours and patterns of Central America, Henriette Botha‘s new jewellery collection, SOUTH, balances boldness and exquisite detail. Her statement pieces are infused with elements of delicacy, with each item handcrafted to create a wearable artwork. The collection is a mixture of luxe textures and striking contrasts, intended to lift the mood with a burst of colour in the traditional winter palette.
With this intention, Henriette looked to countries with warm climates, using prints and patterns from Brazil and strong, stylistic elements from Mexico and balancing these with the vibrant colours of Sicily. Wanting to move away from the sombre mood winter usually implies, she uses warm wintry hues such as deep red and purple and injects bright yellow and turquoise. The beading is enhanced with playful tassels and metallic touches. With elaborate, sculptural pieces complemented by simple, elegant earrings and bracelets, SOUTH is a diverse range that combines bold statements with crafted intricacy.
