Today is the official launching of Anne-Marie Chagnon 2017 Spring-Summer Collection.
For over 20 years, Anne-Marie Chagnon has been mixing matter. Inspired by nature with shapes that are distinct, natural, round, and fluid colours that dance and whirl around with such ease, her creations reflects her raw and pure instinct. Without reflection. A visceral instinct emanates where meaning emerges thereafter.
2017 Collection : strong as the wind, embraced by its breath
This season’s collection offers names inspired by the wind. These invisible forces, real and timeless, just like Anne-Marie Chagnon’s jewellery imparts a breezy soft or powerful character depending upon which one is chosen. This collection instills an unswerving sense of power to the women wearing her jewellery. We all possess a sense of meaning and fervour. This force comes from within. The jewellery just transports her, makes her travel.
This year, Anne-Marie brings back a material that disappeared from her creations – PVC. Of European importation, these supple and fluid carbon tinted ribbons give way to countless possibilities for movement and assemblies. Pure lines can then take shape. These smooth lines which at times seem to float evokes the movement of the wind that envelopes.
To sculpt pewter, her favourite material, the artist-jeweller transposes her pictorial processes in acrylic to pieces in the collection. The metal is therefore transformed into a soft, smooth and round element evocative of a flower’s petal.
The resin coloured rocks and unexpected textures reminds us of nature’s vivacity and abruptness. The glass elements are once again loaded with colours shattering the universe of the piece. Ink stains, Sahara rose, sky blue are the colours embellishing the glass and creating shapes, similar to a painting. Textured conical shapes, sometimes colourful, affixed on the black of the PVC or embedded in the silver clutches brings together romantic forces connecting two eras and reuniting two styles.
A collection that is as strong as the wind, embraced by its breath. The 2017 Spring-Summer Collection unique LOOKBOOK opens up this universe.
