Unveiling Our Spring 2024 Collection: Inspiring Origins, Colorful Creations, and a Collection Launch

Crafting the Glazed Glass Collection: A Fusion of Inspiration

In the inception of the Glazed Glass Collection, inspiration sparked from a myriad of sources, converging into one cohesive vision. This creative journey was illuminated by two distinct colors: a delicate sheer pink and a vibrant fuchsia, both drawn from the Helmut Lang Spring 2024 palette. These hues were reimagined, transformed into a luminous translucent finish, evoking the essence of the spring season.

The addition of an orange-red shade was inspired by the translucent quality found in flowers, reminiscent of the natural stain left by balsam blossoms. Entranced by the gel-like texture, which imparted a plumping effect and a lustrous sheen akin to glass, it became evident that the final aesthetic resembled that of glazed glass—an artistic motif that begged further exploration.

In delving deeper into the realm of glass artistry, memories of my visit to the Chihuly Garden Glass exhibit by the renowned artist Dale Chihuly in Seattle flooded my mind. I recalled the splendorous array of colors and the breathtaking beauty of the glass sculptures. It was an experience that left a profound impression on me.

Inspired by this encounter, the Glazed Glass Collection embodies the essence of colored glazed glass—translucent, glossy, and mesmerizing. Each shade is meticulously crafted to evoke the spirit of creativity and invites wearers to indulge in a transformative beauty experience.

Concept of creating images

In shaping the concepts for our photo shoot, our design team and I used colored translucent disks and glass objects to communicate our ideas. To bring this vision to life, we gathered custom-cut acrylic disks in both round and square shapes, translucent cellophane sheets, and colorful chopsticks to add vibrancy to the compositions. We also sourced various glass objects to complement the overall aesthetic.

We cut the colored cellophane sheets into irregular shapes. These sheets were strategically positioned on the model's hands to add depth and visual interest to the images, aiming to convey the most captivating BTS moments and produce visually striking images.
