New Arrivals - Melanie Georgacopoulos "Essence" Collection
London based Melanie Georgacopoulos is a visionary designer and her creations are extremely chic and elegant. Her passion for jewellery flows from her early experiences and international background; as a young girl being taken around museums she marvelled at the timelessness of ancient greek jewellery. Melanie's childhood influences would soon turn into ideas about how to redefine culturally invested symbols of power and wealth through jewellery design itself. Melanie’s combined passions for multi dimensional form, metal and the pearl found a unique voice, engaging directly with sculpture, architecture and fashion helped form her designs.
Melanie first started designing for small companies as well as internationally renown brands, before giving first expression to her now trademark concept: challenging ideas about classic pearl jewellery. She set up her own company in 2010. Since then her pieces have been featured in numerous fashion magazines and sold worldwide. She continues to develop her original concept in her main M/G line alongside other high profile international collaborations. In 2012 she began working with the world renowned Japanese jeweller Tasaki and more recently she has been pushing design boundaries to further acclaim, adding diamonds to the pearls of her M/G Couture collection.
INTRODUCING THE NEW COLLECTION...
“Essence” was created to celebrate the beauty of existence even in the smallest of sizes, the perfection of form and shape that is present in all of nature’s creations. Everything seems to have a natural order, very much like a row of perfectly round pearls succeeding each other and creating complete harmony as they flow around the body.
The aim of this work was to create a line of pieces that would become part of the wearer's everyday life. Such easy to wear pieces can be a more challenging endeavour, as they have to be functional, almost invisible, yet, original. As a result, this new line has a rather different expression from our usual dramatic catwalk creations, nevertheless it unquestionably represents the “essence” of what M/G is striving for, minimal, elegant, stylish and assertive design.
