‘This is the ultimate gift from me to you’
In the 1933 novel “Lost Horizon” by British author James Hilton, Shangri-La is defined as a mythical paradise. It is a utopia in the Himalayas where joy reigns and where people thrive beyond life expectancy. Since the book’s publication, people around the world have been inspired by it, creating unique spaces that promise a glimpse of what the Lost Land could be like.
But for international Filipino fashion designer Josie Natori, Shangri-La is more than just a place to see, but a delicious sensation, a perfection to experience. And she translated it into an exquisite line of fine jewelry.
Rightly titled ‘Shangri-La’, the collection includes specially designed pieces that celebrate the charm and beauty of linear and minimalist designs. As the Natori brand describes it, the collection “embraces balance and harmony, relaxed and refined, modern and traditional, and eastern and western,” ultimately producing a line that has something for the diverse gender of women.
Reflecting its themes, its clever design elements – brush strokes, elliptical Yin-Yang, and Yin-Yang – which are achieved by bending gold and studded with diamond studs for sparkle. The design elements of the collection also come to life with the help of Tiffany Huang, print designer at Natori.
“I am delighted to launch our ‘Shangri-La’ jewelry collection today,” Josie posted on Instagram. “It has been a labor of love. [It is] inspired by Yin-Yang and the brushstroke, embodying the essence of Natori. I am really obsessed with every piece. This is the ultimate gift from me to you!
