Dion Lee x Jordan Askill Collaboration:
Dion Lee and Jordan Askill release a limited edition jewelry capsule, first seen on the runway during Dion Lee’s Fall 2018 show in New York, available exclusively at Latest Revival.
Dion Lee x Jordan Askill merges Lee’s technical yet sensual aesthetic with Askill’s conceptual and sculptural approach to jewelry. Referencing an archival piece, the collection centers around an encaged rose bud — opening to reveal a cabochon in Amethyst, Citrine, or Garnet — suspended on a double industrial link chain in two different style links.
‘The pieces Jordan created for my Fall collection beautifully combine a dark sensuality with sculptural forms and unique materiality’ — Dion Lee
‘During our collaboration, Dion and I were able to devise a new language for these precious pieces, inspired by his deeply beautiful collection’ — Jordan Askill
