When it comes to contemporary pieces of jewellery, you won’t be surprised to discover that it’s either the unimpaired sense of simplicity, or the fearless creativity to originate the loudest fashion statements in the end. But where simplicity makes use of a quiet elegance to eventually subdue, the experimental road isn’t afraid of baring it all out, perhaps in a strident manner, reflecting the image of a reality undisguised.
A leading figure in the Budapest jewellery design scene, Reka Lorincz is one of the few artists to offer an elaborate interpretation of today’s world though her unique and highly interesting accessories. Striving to make the invisible visible and to convey emotion in each one of her incredible designs, she dares morph her conceptual pieces into critical social commentaries that women can relate to and eventually wear.
“The Flowers of Evil” collection deals critically with the new consumption habits, using manipulated credit cards juxtaposed to precious crystals, pearls, gold, turquoise and even copper, to create what is fashion-as-art’s ultimate power expression. Echoing the complexity of dependence, Reka Lorincz’s brooches and necklaces can easily serve to add up to, or even replace the trendy slogans and messages printed across clothes with something different, something even more ingenious.
Stylish and quirky, but mostly unapologetic when it comes to addressing our modern society with a critic, instead of a praise, Reka Lorincz’s “The Flowers of Evil” collection contemplates our relation to money, and in doing so it alters the flaw by turning it into a thing of utter beauty.
