Since nothing starts a conversation like an interesting pair of earrings or a piece of clothing that pushing boundaries, I thought I would share three designers I discovered only recently and I just can not stop thinking about them. I love finding brands that the Instagram masses aren’t necessarily clued into yet; I am a huge advocate for embracing the fresh and the new.

Without further ado; here they are.

Paul & Yakov

Brothers Petr and Yury of the emerging Moscow-based label Paul & Yakov are focused on creating an idealized image of the Soviet Union. Super contemporary pieces that favor a tailored street edge. One to watch, that’s for sure.

Brisbane jeweller Matilda Sinclair established her label Tilly Jewellery in July 2014.

Matilda studied at the Brisbane Institute of Art completing a number of courses including beginner, medium and advanced silversmithing, stone setting and casting.

Tilly Jewellery focuses on a minimal approach to wearable, great quality, timeless fine silver jewellery.

All pieces from Tilly Jewellery are hand made by Matilda herself in her Brisbane studio.
