This season, we pay homage to the past with our Regal Tales and Grains of Life collections evoking themes of the Renaissance. However, we also look to the future with PANDORA Reflexions, which showcases a new era of style.
We speak with PANDORA VP Creative Directors, Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli, about what inspired the latest designs.
A NEW ERA OF STYLE
Explain the concept behind the new PANDORA Reflexions bracelet.
"The bracelet is part of our new PANDORA Reflexions collection. It’s a new kind of bracelet that reflects the femininity and personality of its wearer. The bracelet is customisable with charms. Thanks to its timeless, sleek design, the PANDORA Reflexions bracelet sits beautifully on the wrist.”
What inspired you to design the PANDORA Reflexions bracelet?
"We wanted to offer women something that truly reflects them; their personal narrative, creativity and personality. Something that inspires them and other women. The bracelet’s clean aesthetic allows more room for playfulness and expression, and the fluid lines and clean look of the bracelet reflect modern femininity.”
What are the standout jewellery trends this season?
"Playing with contrasts is definitely one of the biggest jewellery trends for this season: mixing and matching old and new, minimalist and ornate pieces, dainty and chunky jewellery.”
How should women wear the pieces from the new collection? "Mix and match contrasting metals, different styles and sizes of jewellery, or stack and layer them. Thanks to the high level of detail, the pieces stand out on their own, whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist.”
Inspired by the influential female figures of the Renaissance – a time where femininity began to become immortalised in paint and marble by artists like Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Botticelli – our new collection draws inspiration from the strong and inspirational female leaders of that era.
The Renaissance was a time when women began to take their role in history. Icons of style and power – like Elizabeth I of England and Caterina de' Medici, Queen of France – started to define the idea of regal femininity through their attire and adornments. Jewellery was also a vital part of self-expression.
Our new collection combines inspiration from these female Renaissance figures and our own modern fairy tales to create a captivating story. Empower yourself with a sense of regal enchantment and embody the queen that you are inside.
What has inspired your new collection and why?
"We were very much inspired by the Renaissance, which has fascinated us for a long time. There are many parallels between the Renaissance and women’s empowerment.”
Are there any new techniques or innovations that you have introduced?
"The new collection is all about intricate details that require high-level jewellery crafting skills, from hidden and hanging elements to delicate tapestry-inspired patterns and engravings.”
Do you have a source of inspiration that you constantly keep coming back to?
"The mood board, the colour card and how women wear jewellery are the three most important things that inspire us. We are also inspired by bygone muses and what we see in art and literature, exhibitions, culture and even the people on the street and how they dress.
What are the season’s standout colours?
"The season’s colour palette consists of metallic hues and purple—the ultimate regal colour.”
