Abstract art is worn by the neck with the new bijoux by Lora Nikolova ♦ ︎
Thinking to Vasilij Vasil’evič Kandinskij, the tutelary figure of abstractionism, is too much. But looking at Lora Nikolova’s bijoux, lying on a white surface, an analogy with non-figurative art is immediate. The autumn-winter 2017/18 collection by the Bulgarian-born designer, now stable in Milan, where he studied art at the Brera Academy, however, also has another inspiration: free hand designs and graphic sketches. She explains that the goal is not just to create a network in which the elements of the bijou are positioned, but to propose a pattern made through the wire and beads (bugle beads) that creates a game of different thicknesses. A design that resembles an abstract composition, in fact.
Small and light jewelry, that we seen in Homi (fair in Milan), have also colorful tassels. A new entry is the mono-earrings. The materials are not important: what matters is a very original, very balanced, very colorful composition.
