The revitalization of the Copacabana beachfront was a striking feature of Burle-Marx’s work, because of that the world-renowned contours could not be left out of our collection.
Although the pattern was not created by the artist – but had already existed in Portugal under the name of Mar Largo – it was in the architect’s hands that the lines gained worldwide recognition . For the sidewalk it was not a simple structural reform, but a welcome to the plurality of the environment and the expression of a fluid perspective. It was as if Burle-Marx had contributed to the symbolic construction of the city of Rio by the fact that he refused to create a tropical oasis, or even falling into the European cultural tradition, but his rational intention was to extol the city’s natural beauty through modern contours.
We have brought the form in a non-caricatured way manifested into a three-dimensional object resulting in an organic sculpture to be worn on the wrist . Creating contemporary Brazilianness.
Borned through inner reflection, the 6th Collection was the fruit of personal balance research during a time of social distance, therefore the new collection is a countermovement. The 7th Collection comes from the desire of escapism and the urgent need to be in contact with nature.
In this Collection the intention of free movement, the use of color and self-determination were expressed .
Turning to the aesthetics of the 7th Collection, it has nostalgic eyes in the Brazilian Modernism movement. Especially the works of the architect and landscaper Roberto Burle-Marx. He defined himself as an esthete and plastic artist who used unconventional materials for his creations, for instance natural topography, vegetation and minerals. As a botanical enthusiast, Burle-Marx brought status to native species once seen as unwanted.
Burle-Marx’s vision is very much aligned with our work in the brand: artistic creations that escape from conventional materials such as canvas, brushes and paints and which value the Brazilian raw materials.
The form of the jewelry in the Collection was inspired by Brazilian Modernism, through abstraction, organicism and tropicalism. Thus, a non-caricature Brazilianness and an optimism in colors and contours is seen.
