Their collection was inspired on what I think are very interesting thoughts on youth culture. According to Cheap Monday, 90s grunge was the last real youth movement. Today, in a world of fast fashion and medialized culture, these movements are picked up commercially almost before they even appear, creating something artificial. So every youth culture from nowadays has commercial interest and brands driving it? Ironically, so has this collection from Cheap Monday called 'Artificial Grunge' (hence the paperclip jewelry).

Mooie armband!
Tegenwoordig lijkt er geen echte stroming meer aan te wijzen binnen de jeugd. Het lijkt ook alsof er weinig dingen zijn waar alle jongeren zich druk om maken, zoals vroeger wel het geval was toen iedereen ging protesteren.

I love this piece (the jewellery, but more the text). You have the gift to put your thoughts into words. I share these thoughts on commercialized culture. A lot of collections contain trends that came from the streets, or could have been DIY-projects. It all seems quite empty to me that you can buy these items (like cut-off shirts, because i bet everyone can do this at home).

I would have never thought that you could make a paperclip into a minimal and beautiful cuff! said...

I want that ring so much *_*

Very interesting Ivania. You have a gift to put it down in a few words, a feeling I had, but I couldn't put a finger to it. Thanks.
For me as a designer these things are interesting to read, still I keep on doing my thing, and not be influenced by trends, just my own interest and dreams I like to create into wearable jewelry.

Keep up the good work. Amazing photography btw.

This is such an interesting though. Almost hypocritical of them. I do love the ring though, I cannot deny that!

I thought this was a DIY initially, and I was wondering where you managed to find a rose gold paperclip. Now I'm just shocked I never thought to try and use those paperclips as jewelry!

Wat een gaaf ding! Had uit mezelf (shame on me) niet gezien dat het een paperclip was, maar daar wordt ie alleen maar leuker van. :)

It's so neat, I love it.

Even in the middle of the grunge era, the baby boomer generation was busy reminding us that it was not a proper youth movement at all. On the other hand, I see youth movements today as deep international undercurrents that cannot be captured by the mainstream precisely because they are moving targets, dodging whenever the mainstream comes close.

Pretty bracelet.
