Lecoanet Hemant jewellery collection, by designer duo Hemant Sagar and Didier Lecoanet, includes an array of necklaces, rings and bracelets
Online PR News – 17-December-2012 – new delhi – This couldn’t have been better timed. Just when the price of gold is looking to break records with a new-found vengeance, designer duo Hemant Sagar and Didier Lecoanet have rolled out their first ever collection of jewellery that doesn’t fuss over precious metals or gemstones. Instead, the Lecoanet-Hemant line of jewellery is feminine with funky elements.
The collection, which includes an array of necklaces, rings and bracelets, is just the thing one can flaunt on an evening soiree or even wear to work; it’s definitely not something you stash away in the locker and pull out for special occasions. Priced under Rs 7,000, it is, as Sagar puts it, “daily luxury.”
With intricate detailing and charms such as hearts, circles and stars, the jewellery also has elements of industrial design and, therefore, isn’t all-out cutesy. It is sure to appeal to women across all age groups. “We have been enamoured by industrial creations and you’ll notice it in cut-outs and multiple chains in the designs. We wanted to steer away from the usual craftsmanship associated with Indian jewellery,” says Sagar.
Buoyed by the response received for their leather accessories collection launched last year, the jewellery collection, explain the designer duo, is a natural extension of their brand and reflects their ‘design sensibilities’. “After the launch of our leather line, we felt that it would be interesting to expand the accessories range from bags to jewellery. We wanted to create pieces which not only reflect our design philosophy but also suit the ever-changing needs of modern women,” says Sagar.
We particularly liked the cocktail rings with the Lecoanet-Hemant “dog” logo that adds a sense of quirkiness to the collection. “Usually women reserve designer pieces for special occasions. With this collection, we want to infuse high fashion in daily use,” says the designer. Though some pieces have gold plating, shades of beige and gold highlight key pieces from the label. We like.
