Although Leila Kashanipour has made a name for herself in the jewelry world with her unique LeiVanKash line, which this season features Persian motifs with a modern twist, she pivots in a more minimal direction for Fall/Winter 2015. In this gallery, Savoir Flair introduces you to Kashanipour’s new ‘Oculus’ collection, which trades on the Persian evil-eye talisman, believed to protect the wearer from evil spirits.
By relying on abstract designs and minimalist settings featuring oversized faux pearls and 22kt gold plating, the new collection makes for a noticeable evolution of the brand’s aesthetic. “This collection is somewhat a link between my two main lines; it has the cleaner lines and aesthetics of the ‘L’Etoile de Botteh’ collection, but the scale and visual characteristics of the ‘Classics’,” Kashanipour explains in an exclusive interview with Savoir Flair.
