I popped in to see the lovely Jane Gowans yesterday afternoon, where she and her equally lovely PR, Kate, refuelled my batteries with a cup of tea and a tasty biscuit. We had a chat about fashion week and Jane’s new collection.
The collection, entitled Captain, was inspired by an old photograph that Jane discovered of her Grandfather in naval uniform. From this image, she created a collection influenced by the tools of his trade, from matchsticks to compass points and rock structures to rope. A simple concept, which has transformed into a stunning collection of hand finished jewellery made from gold vermeil, rose gold, sterling silver and black oxidised silver, dotted here and there with pretty garnet and peridot.
For Scottish fans, Jane Gowans is stocked at Harvey Nichols Edinburgh. London fans – get down to Somerset House now to make an appointment with Jane while she is in town!
