Dominic Jones’ Intergalactic Fall ’13

-------

After producing a particularly ornate Spring ’13 range—filled with intricate, scale-like gilded wares and extended razor-sharp claw rings—jewelry designer Dominic Jones kept it clean for Fall. “I felt it should be a reaction to the previous collection,” he explained. The result was a fusion of tribal adornments and stark futurism realized in white gold. “I wanted this season to be minimalist, almost Scandinavian,” said the designer, noting that the disk shapes of his earrings and necklaces, as well as his Fall talon motifs, came from traditional African jewelry. “I think it actually looks quite sci-fi, though,” he mused.

Indeed, his geometric cuff and jointed, slatted ring have a punk-tinged intergalactic edge, and Jones chose to emphasize this space-age feel in his Fall ’13 film. Styled by Victoria Young (Jones says he appreciates her brutal honesty) and lensed by Alex Sainsbury, the raw short lets Jones’ slick wares shine. But the video, which debuts exclusively below, isn’t the designer’s only cinematic triumph this week—those killer claws from last season are worn by Andrej Pejic in David Bowie’s new music vid, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” which was released yesterday. “It was a dream that I never even could have dreamed, come true,” said Jones. “I’ve been a fan of his since I was a baby.”

Dominic Jones is available at Barneys, The Webster, and on Net-a-Porter.com.

    Please remove this image..What are you thinking of..it is distasteful,offensive, wrong and immoral.The portrail of emancipated painfully thin, ill looking person being “stylish”is so wrong on every level

    This is a very powerfully potently judgmental comment you make here David. I personally know this model, a great cross country runner,an artist and model. She eats very well , and to judge her as emancipated and ill looking is quite frankly libelous and insulting to her. Albeit Dominic Jones jewelry is beautiful as is the model.
