My inspiration came from the ‘Fortune Alley’ brief, the mysterious yet sophisticated girl that delves into the opium dens of 1930’s Hong Kong; and my recent trip to Asia, where no matter what your socio-economic status is, there’s elaborate shrines everywhere. The overall look was also chosen to keep in line with the Mimco brand image. The story is portrayed through a mix of different metals; tassel earrings, daisy yellow and gold snake cuffs adorned with crystals, a dragon ring, and a necklace in the shape of a Calabash. Ancient Asian medicine practises used the Calabash to store medicine, in this case a secret carrier of opium to continue the mystery; all capturing the decadence of capitalism meets communism.
