A hint of Picasso. Hasla’s newest collection, Faces, has a positive “post-covid” feeling. The jewelry pieces are inspired by expressionism, and especially by Picasso’s representation of people. The designer, Anne Hasla, has worked with the words “Love”, “Equality” and “Nature”. She has experimented with drawing and painting and has arrived at various characters that represent these universal words. Anne has collaborated with an animator, who has made 3D versions of her drawings. The result gives the jewelry depth, while at the same time preserving the hand-drawn impression.
“Through my work on Faces, creativity has been given free rein. In the idea phase, I liberated myself from the idea of jewelry and focussed on the conceptual aspect of the collection. I made drawings and paintings and arrived at characters with the motif I wanted for the jewelry. We then modeled them into 3D objects, which have become artistic medallions.”
Hasla has a continuously increasing focus on collection size and tries to reduce volumes, while at the same time keeping complete collections. In the creation phase, this is often difficult, but as a designer and brand, it is important to take on this responsibility.
Faces comprise the medallions “Lovers”, “Equal” and “Hug A Tree”, including simple hoops and lighter earrings. The collection also includes ear cuffs and various chains that complement and reflect elements from the design on the medallions.
