AK Vintage Illuminations Collection

AK Vintage Illuminations Collection
The Spring '13 collection of gorgeous jewelry by local designer, Anna Korte, for her label, AK Vintage, is her best work to date. When I met with her last summer to write our Fall order, she had just started developing the pieces, and she hinted that they would be very Lille-appropriate—boy, isn't that the truth! Inspired by the poet Arthur Rimbaud, the Illuminations collection has a distinctly art deco vibe, with pared down, graphic silhouettes that recall the orientalism craze of the teens and 20s that permeated so many different forms of modernist art—most fondly, for me, in the themes and costumes worn by modern dance pioneers like Martha Graham, Ruth St. Denis and other Denishawn Dancers, as well as the Ballets Russes. Here we are, nearly 100 years later, and these shapes and concepts are more relevant than ever! If you enjoy this aesthetic as much as I do, act quickly, because these pieces are sure to fly out the door.
