EXCLUSIVE: SEB BROWN X PHEBE SCHMIDT
Two of our ultimate favourites have come together to create a mind blowing lookbook turned piece of art. And if collaborations were born in heaven, this one would be their God.
Jewellery designer Seb Brown and photographer Phebe Schmidt teamed up for this bold, still-life-esque creation, featuring a whole bunch of Seb's newest jewels.
This body of work was hugely influenced by Seb's recent trip to the Himalayan mountains which lead him to use some dope raw materials and the juxtaposition of Phebe's hyper-realistic photography is the perfect combination.
"I know this is a little hypocritical as my work is made from a natural element pulled from the ground, but I also wanted to highlight the beauty in the materiality of silver. I’ve been playing with different coloured hand-tinted resins and coming up with lots of great colours in varying shades of pearl."
The process of shooting these incredible jewels was a natural collaboration which obviously lead to amazing results.
"I think Phebe and I are both quite experimental and we would often just drop some rings on the floor and shoot them how they fell."
What's next? Who knows but it's going to be damn good - that's for sure.
