Farah Nasri, the founder and designer of HKD, has never been one to shy away from standing out. Launched in 2013, her Dubai-based label is recognized as one of the most unique jewelry brands to come out of the Middle East, seamlessly fusing the worlds of art and fashion.
For her latest collection, Nasri was inspired by the French Baroque period, which resulted in an all-red collection made from 3-D-printed resin and, for the first time ever in her brand’s history, Swarovski crystals. “The harsh use of red together with pink and translucent crystals creates a sci-fi twist on the rather romantic floral motif,” the designer explains to Savoir Flair. “A quirky take on Baroque, the collection of ear cuffs, magnetic earrings, interchangeable rings/earrings, and chokers depicts woven lines made into floral and branch-like patterns.”
The new ‘Sci-Fi Baroque’ collection includes seven designs, which will be limited to 30 pieces each. One design in particular, which happens to be Nasri’s favorite, has a philanthropic element to it; “The ‘Red Baroque Choker’ has been produced in collaboration with The Big Heart Foundation, so 25 percent of the necklace’s sales will be dedicated to helping Syrian refugee children as part of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi’s charity.”
