Efants Perdus jewelry: Gothic intricacies

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” – Charles Darwin

Or, in the simplified, staccato words of jewellery label Enfants Perdus Evolution is life. Stasis is death. It’s that struggle of mankind to overcome the harshness of nature, to survive against the odds, that inspired these intricate pieces. In the world of Enfants Perdus orchids aren’t just flowers but Gothic creatures that seem to crawl their way across sterling silver and gold pieces, spider-like. Triffid-like, even. There’s something inordinately beautiful about the complexity of the brand’s White Milgrim collection, perhaps magnified by the current trends towards minimalism in jewelry that makes the Gothic romanticism stand out all the more.

These are types of pieces that can’t succeed without craftsmanship. The right materials, the right production, are the key to making them true statements where a lesser quality version would fail. It’s that mix of Gothic intricacies and craftsmanship that make Enfants Perdus’ accessories well worth a look.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
