Shivanshi G Khanna’ s art accessory canvas stretches all the way to the domes of Florence’ s Cathedral with her leather jewellery
Simple and classic, leather has been and always will be chic.
Although not the norm, jewellery designers who want to stretch the limits of the malleability of gold, silver and copper are veering towards leather.
One such designer is Delhi-based Shivanshi G Khanna, the founder of The House of Muse, an online retailer who markets her designs through social media. She is now all set to launch her new set of neckpieces and handcuffs in pure leather.
Minimalist but classy, her inspirations are eclectic. “When I was in Italy, the domes in the Florence’s Cathedral caught my eye. You can see the reflection of that in my designs,” says the designer who loves fusing not one, but a handful of geometric patterns in her designs.
Talking about leather, the designer says she wants to fuse local fabrics and mirror work with it as well. “I want to go to the interiors of Rajasthan, sit with the local artisans and create something inspiring from that,” she says. An ardent admirer of the work of American luxe jeweller Harry Winston and the minimalist, yet elegant accessories from Tiffany’s, Khanna specialises in edgy neckpieces and hand-cuffs.
Soon, she will be adding earrings to her collection. Her collection will be available in the Jubilee Hills boutique, Talasha, from mid-December.
Those who want to pre-order can do so on Facebook and Instagram as well. The accessories for men will hit stores early next year.
Incidentally, the designer also happens to be actress Raashi Khanna’s sister-in-law. So will the actress soon be seen wearing the accessories from her new line soon? “Yes, of course, I showed the designs to her and she loved them,” says Khanna.
