Introducing : Fauvel Footwear SS 2017

Fauvel_600
Fauvel Flat Sandal in Specchio, Handmade in France

Morgane Fauvel is a French-born designer and shoemaker based in Paris. A graduate of the Atelier Chardon Sarvard in 2011, she proceeded to complete her formation in shoes with Robert Clergerie.

From this solid foundation she has now launched her debut footwear line, Fauvel. 100% hand made in Paris and produced in-house, the label champions a strong philosophy in technical and aesthetic innovation.

The collection aims to achieve a balance between tradition and innovation whilst maintaining Fauvel’s own personal touch; adding a feminine element to artisanal shoemaking.

‘I would like to design and fabricate a capsule collection each season. Producing a small run allows a strong focus on high quality fabrication and also preserves exclusivity in production. Entirely made by hand in my workshop the design and production is united in the same space and allows freedom in design and research.

I propose minimal shoes, combining attention to detail and technical originality. The shoes are distinctly classic with masculine traits, which follow artisanal construction techniques in production. The collection intentionally avoids a pure appearance through the play on colour and finish. But I am trying to avoid a clean and intellectual appearance, by also using colors and texture.’

Introducing : HANNAHK Jewelry SS 2017

Hannahk_sails_necklace
HANNAHK Sails Necklace (brass chain, silver solder)

HANNAHK is a jewelry collection centered around the material exploration of brass chain and silver solder. Each piece uses an original process yielding different shape variations, kinetic details, and visual geometries. The colourful patinas, which are a byproduct of the process vary, making each one an original work.

The brass, sterling silver, and silver solder will tarnish over time as your body chemistry reacts with the metal. Pieces may be gently cleaned by submerging in hot apple cider vinegar and washing with soap and water.

Hannah Keefe studied jewelry and metalsmithing at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
