Playful design codes abound in the latest collaboration between Miu Miu and artists Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, who have drawn on their 2015 sculpture series, A Thief Caught in the Act, for a new collection of whimsical adornments.
The duo have reimagined the mischievous motifs from their previous work to create a jewellery collection titled ‘A Remedy’, which casts resin pills and animals in sweet sorbet shades; in the artists’ hands, the flamboyantly drawn silhouettes of earrings and necklaces are translated into childlike forms.
The resulting offbeat pieces offer a new look to traditional fine jewellery, imbuing animals and flowers with an impish impression when juxtaposed against a rainbow of boldly coloured pills.
Polished, assembled and decorated by hand, their gleaming outlines make for a chic bridge between the art and jewellery worlds.
