In partnership with Kirstin Ash
For their latest collection, Kirstin Ash blends evolving silhouettes with playful nostalgia. Titled Dive In, the range implores wearers to follow their instincts, be bold and live without hesitation through a cohesive range of refined pieces.
Throughout Dive In, organic textures unique to the brand are peppered with freshwater pearls and sunshine motifs. At the crux of the collection is the ripple shape setting found across all accessories in varying formations. Pieces are delicately crafted for the modern woman, a lover of the sun-kissed moments in life who feels at home by the sea, with rays shining down on her skin and a subtle ocean breeze in the air.
Dainty pearl earrings set in 18k gold-plated designs evoke a sense of whimsy and maintain a connection with the ocean through their unique shape. Delicate chain necklaces with single pendants feature alongside beaded pearl or tiger’s eye alternatives, cultivating a statement look. Bracelets complementing the pieces convey a graceful sensibility, ideal for layering and pairing with matching items.
A hallmark of the ethereal aesthetic of sunset lovers, stackable rings in gold and silver are designed to be mixed-and-matched or worn as standalone pieces, with layered jewellery continuing to be a prominent trend across the accessories landscape. Signet rings emblazoned with the setting sun feature alongside warped plain and minimalistic bands.
Creative director of the eponymous brand, founded more than 10 years ago with her brother Nick, Kirstin Ash, said Dive In is wholeheartedly rooted in the ideas of freedom and chasing dreams which may seem far out of reach. “For me, this collection was about a state of mind, capturing the essence of being on the edge of freedom,” explained Ash. “[It’s about] letting go and taking a chance to chase that feeling.”
Known for their paired-back aesthetics, Kirstin Ash collections are fundamentally tied to a foundational story, with this story conveyed through the details of every piece conceived. The brand places a conscious design practice and the longevity of jewellery as a priority, with all pieces made to last and become a staple accessory.
Captured on film by photographer Brydie Mack, Dive In’s guiding themes are prominent throughout the collection with the exploration of freedom and the relationship between the organic and the refined ever-present across jewellery conceived and brought to fruition in the range. Every piece holds meaning and has been crafted with purpose.
