On The Rocks Magazine

Issue 4

Autumn Winter 16

Alex & Lee’s bold, genre-defying jewellery, which drew admirers and collaborators as diverse as Salvador Dalí and Proenza Schouler, stars on the cover of On The Rocks’ new issue, photographed by Charlotte Wales and styled by Clare Byrne. Inside, we present a tribute to the pioneering design duo, key players in the 70s art-to-wear movement, who started their glittering career beachcombing on Fire Island.

Elsewhere in the issue, we travel to New York to visit the exquisite headquarters of James Taffin de Givenchy, whose magical jewels are captured in an atmospheric fashion story photographed by Alexander Neumann and styled by Raquel García. Harriet Quick meets the dapper Frenchman to discuss his unique aesthetic sensibility, and what it was like growing up as part of the Givenchy family. From London, art patron Valeria Napoleone and her twin sister, designer Stefania Pramma, unveil their private jewellery collection, a trove of fabulous pieces designed together since their teens; impeccably chic gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn explains her attraction to the wonderful wearable sculptures of Alexander Calder and Karl Fritsch; Ana Khouri traces a delicate line from her earliest sculptures to her finely wrought jewels; and a maverick trio, including singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart, share their keepsakes and treasures.

The mood of the season is captured in fashion stories by celebrated stylists and image-makers Carmen Borgonovo (On The Rocks’ new Jewellery and Fashion Director), Matthieu Lavanchy, Jenny van Sommers, Coppi Barbieri, Steve Morriss and Annette Masterman, to name a few.

Also in the issue: the late Zaha Hadid’s collaboration with Georg Jensen; ocean-inspired jewellery, courtesy of model and designer Erin Wasson; the romance of lockets; and a guide to the most exciting new exhibitions of jewellery across the world.
