This is Yunus Ascott: artist/jewellery designer extraordinaire and one half of the award winning Yunus & Eliza. I met him and his lovely partner Eliza Higginbottom at the Fashion East Mens Installations during London Collections: Men. Their fantastical jewellery and sculptural designs take influence from theatre and mythology to create beautifully innovative pieces. Take a look at their website here to see their work. One of their rings is already on my Christmas wish list…
Yunus’ Poseidon Ring
His charity shop boots are splattered in paint after he and Eliza cast the sculptural figurehead for the Royal Barge, the Spirit of Chartwell for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. What a royal mess!
The sculptural headpieces were on display at the Fashion East Mens Installations
