To help launch Maia Adams’ upcoming title Fashion Jewelry – Catwalk & Couture, the book’s publisher Laurence King Publishing and colette have sought out a series of jewelers to each contribute a special 1 of 1 jewelry piece for an exhibition. A look into London-based designer Daisuke Sakaguchi’s work is presented here as he looks to a massively iconic fashion figure in Karl Lagerfeld to serve as his inspiration for the following bracelet. Some words from Daisuke himself provide a further overview to his piece. The launch party and event will take place on Saturday, March 6th at colette.
I chose to create it with the concept and theme based on a figure who I find extremely fascinating, he is Karl Lagerfeld. It is an Identity bracelet made of 925 Sterling Silver with a Rhodium plated finish. The sculpted front panel spells “KARL” and the entire bracelet is theatrical, eye catching, intricate and slick to capture and reflect Karl Lagerfeld’s unique style and sophisticated attitude. The back of the front panel is hand engraved with my brand name “THE 27 LIFE” with the hallmark stamp. It also has a specially made spring clasp with my name Daisuke Sakaguchi laser etched on to it with a second hallmark stamp.
