London designer Anabela Chan, after fashion and architecture is great with jewelery ♦ ︎
Anabela Chan is a origin chinese designer who works in London. She defined herself as “slightly rebellious,” even though her jewels were consecrated with a burst of awards. And it’s no surprise that they are worn by stars like Lady Gaga and Rita Ora. She comes from a family of three generations dealing with cinema.
Perhaps for this reason her jewels are so spectacular: she grew up between London and Paris, attended the Royal College of Art and Gemmological Association of Great Britain, a school that has made her discover an innate talent in choosing the precious stones she uses for her jewels. As in the best traditions, Anabela start from stones to build pieces of great visual impact. She also loves the architecture (she has worked with archistar Lord Richard Rogers) and has a passion for art, as well she is a expert in prints. To better understand Anabela Chan’s attitudes, one can add that she also had a period of her life in fashion and she worked with designer Alexander McQueen in London for seven years before returning to jewelry to launch his Maison in 2013. In short, his work is the result of an explosive mix of experiences, abilities, aptitudes. You find it in its boutique at Piccadilly’s Ham Yard Hotel. Giulia Netrese
