French jewelry brand Dinh Vans has become famous over the years for their simple leather bracelets. Especially in Europe the brand has had a strong run with these. On the other hand it has been a while since we have seen something new and innovative from the brand.
Now Dinh Van worked with Lapo Elkan from the Fiat dynasty, who has also built some brands over the years, including Pantofolo D’Oro and Italia Independent. He also created the Fiat vintage logo, now used on the popular Fiat 500. For Dinh Vans he re-invented the Chinese Pi Collection.
““For Pi Independent, he chooses carbon fiber, renowned for its extreme resistance and lightness. Under the Jeweler’s hand, this black matt material is sublimated into a precious material allying softness and sensuality. dinh van offers its final touch by adding the jewelry carbon, best known as diamond, to this remarkable material, highlighting the elegance and deepness of those creations.
The Pi Independent collection offers carbon-exclusive creations, fusion of innovation and tradition. The famous Pi disk comes in cord bracelets and pendants. Bracelets and cuffs exist in damier carbon for men, and satin carbon for women. A XXL pendant is proposed in limited edition of 7 numbered pieces, Lapo’s lucky number.””
Look out for a release soon at colette.
