SCULPTURAL SIMPLICITY

Esteban Cortazar (estebancortazar.com) – USA
Sculptural, delicate, fluid…
The exploration of the curves, angles and lines of the female body is the heart of the Esteban Cortazar’s aesthetic. Native of Colombia, Esteban, who grew up in Miami, is an enfant prodige of female luxury. Graduated from the Design & Architecture Senior High University in Miami, he was named creative director at Ungaro in his early twenties. In 2013 he launched his eponymous brand with a trans-seasonal capsule collection exclusively at Net-a-Porter. Sculptural silhouettes and fluid lines that hug the body characterize athletics-inspired pieces made with satin and stretch cady and a color palette that plays with the tones of grey and ice. A sophisticated elegance for women who are looking to stand out in a delicate and understated way.

Architectural, geometrical, evocative…
The world of Malin Henningsson is dominated by a dramatic and boisterous yet poetic and refined tension. A graduate from the Konstfack University College of Arts Crafts and Design in Stockholm, the Swedish designer established her namesake jewelry line in 2013. Fascinated with African talismans, fish preserved in formalin or old measuring tools, Malin realizes unique and intriguing handmade jewelry pieces in her Stockholm studio. Jocalia aeris is the name of a trans-seasonal debut collection that express her love for details and the mix of unusual materials. Swedish marble, plastic strings and gold plated brass are harmoniously blended into necklaces, bracelets and rings with a delicate and evocative twist.
