Sylver & Shackel celebrated its first anniversary at Willis York in Wellington. Its jewellery collection featured in a beautiful installation at the Wellington salon, and Lucire loved its boudoir feel.
Founders Sylvie Poupard-Gould and Joanna Shackel find their materials from vintage finds: they visit auction houses to source, rescuing antique pieces, then repurpose the jewellery, blending precious and non-precious materials into the designs. The designs are timeless, reflected in the promotional photography from Luke Calder (of LCP in Wellington), with models from Kirsty Bunny Management.
Both Poupard-Gould and Shackel have travelled extensively, giving them both an international insight into design and style.
The new offerings are divided into five sub-collections: In-temporal (with vintage components), Les Classiques (timeless design), Collective ID (stamped and branded), Rocco (channelling an inner rock chick), and Ltd. Edition (made-to-order custom pieces).
The event was supported by Broken Shed vodka and San Pellegrino, and fans of the label ensured that Sylver & Shackel did rapid business with its latest collection that evening.
Poupard-Gould has an additional connection to this magazine: she named it in 1997.—Sopheak Seng, Fashion Editor, and Lucire staff
