Gamin is a New York- based jewelry studio that distills cultural history into meaningful pieces with the capacity to age beautifully, bringing an original interpretation to traditional form and toeing the line between masculine and feminine designs.
The SS17 collection draws from metalwork of the Byzantine Empire and the unique ways in which these artifacts have aged. This unexpectedly modern structure influenced the exploration of faceted details and new designs for woven leather, resulting in a collection with a crisp and geometric foundation, but still strongly tied to the influence of both the maker and the wearer’s hand.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
