The capsule collection by Daniela Villegas dedicated to bees, metaphor of the female universe ♦ ︎
To be or not to be? The dilemma of Hamlet, played by Daniela Villegas, becomes: to bee or not to bee? The right answer is the second: the bee has successfully turned into a capsule collection, Sisterhood. The bees are buzzing and, after all, they are part of that miniature universe, that of insects, which is so exciting for the Mexican designer based in Los Angeles. Queen Bee includes bees wearing crowns to represent the theme of power, but also a sisterhood, because the bees are very supportive of each other. Not only that: the bees have, beyond their decorative effect, a primacy in productivity, in wisdom, in spirituality, humility, modesty, and so on.
The jewels of Daniela Villegas dedicated to the bees are in 18-carat yellow gold, in some cases with a drop of multicolored jasper, reminiscent of the classic yellow and black stripes that characterize the body of insects. To complete the jewels are South Sea pearls and citrines. The capsule collection has had a sudden success on Moda Operandi. But it is worth looking at it. Alessia Mongrando
