Mercedes Salazar

Here's one that's sure to put a smile on your face, even on the gloomiest of days. The brightly-coloured creations of this Colombian goldsmith are definite conversation starters, featuring almost anything you can think of, from star, flowers, and hearts to watermelons, cacti, and flamingos. The brand works in alliance with artisans from indigenous communities in Colombia, using ancestral techniques of crochet and weaving. The result? Fun and whimsical pieces that both look good and do good.

Acchitto

History is far from dead and gone, at least according to Acchitto. Fendi alums Elena Faccio and Francesca Richiardi delve deep into the past for their designs, drawing inspiration from the likes of the roaring '20s, Victorians, and Venetian Moors. With a strong preference for gold, the assortment of jewellery from Acchitto brings a touch of old-world glamour to the 21st century.

Revé by René

Looking to shake up your eyewear game? Revé by René might be the answer. René Chu built her brand around the idea of adaptability , wherein sunglasses can be customised to suit your mood for the day. Using a clever system of magnets, playful elements like cat ears, unicorn horns, and vampire fangs can be added to or removed from the lightweight metal or acetate frames, depending on whether you want to look classy or quiry. It might sound gauche, but Revé by René manages to pull it off without seeming childish or contrived. 

First seen in the October 2019 issue of L'Officiel Singapore
