Dinosaur Designs’ Creative Directors Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy have looked to the night sky for inspiration for their new collection.
Luna explores the different shades and light of the moon with a moody palette that veers from dark, mysterious volcanic ash through to chalky white with luminous accents of silver. Spherical, crater-like forms echo through the jewellery and homewares.
Central to the Luna jewellery collection are dramatic, oversized circular earrings; from giant, translucent hoops to suspended orbs enhanced by speckled black and white castings. New sterling silver Watermoon pendants and round silver Luna earrings make an elegant yet bold statement. The homewares comprise of classic pieces such as the Beetle Bowl, Temple Platter and Mother of Pearl Dish which have been rendered in the Luna palette, from deep basalt to luminous marbled white with soft hints of luna sand.
Still life and fashion photographer Saskia Wilson captured the collection, photographing the pieces to resemble space objects sent into orbit, with graphic formations creating a mysterious, galactic moonscape. Evelina Milward features in the shoot wearing the Luna jewellery collection.
Luna is now available from The Strand Melbourne boutique.
