All The Pretty Horses
Sydney-born designer Jordon Askill has cut his teeth with some impressive mentors: He interned for Alexander McQueen, designed for Ksubi, then apprenticed at Dior Homme for a three-year spell, winning a clutch of awards along the way. Now he’s branched out on his own with a whimsical line of jewelry that includes a sculpture or two thrown in for good measure. Fitting then, that the equally whimsical Dover Street Market, as well as Paris’ one-and-only goth couturier, Rick Owens, will stock Askill’s work, starting during each city’s respective fashion week. On offer will be rings, pendants, and cuffs shaped like altar-boy faces, soaring birds, and gothic roses. And specifically for Dover Street Market, Askill has created a one-off sculpture of horses galloping in an archlike shape, aptly entitled the Horse Wave, that calls to mind the Ten Commandments scene where the Egyptian army’s horses get swept up during the parting of the Red Sea. Biblical, slightly weird, and very fresh, don’t expect it to stay in stock long, as a throng of devout fashion pilgrims will certainly be heading to Dover Street Market this week to snap up finds like this.
