Alan Anderson and Renata Kaveh came together for the first time this summer to create a memorable gallery of images that highlighted the extraordinary jewellery of new collections.
All elements — the setting, the colours, the poses — were inspired by French artist and fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. Renowned for cutting edge photography and regarded as one of THE great fashion photographers, his work dominated Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar in the late 1950s and early 1960s. His 1960s Italian dolce vita style was not considered traditional fashion photography at the time.
Equally, inspiration came from Hitchcock’s blondes — Grace Kelly, Tippy Hedren — came into play with model selection and poses.
Black Alaskan Diamonds; Angel skin coral (1950s Czech), Ruby and diamond — 1950s Austrian machine-cut rubies (available on-line); 1950s unfoiled Austrian clear crystal is art deco in design; 1950s Czech turquoise with 1960s Swarovski light smoked topaz.
