Inspiration

Minx created unique designs using the reference given by the Alexander McQueen design team, reflecting the inspiration for the collection: mother of pearl, shells, water and sea foam. Based on the brief, Marian and Minx co-founder Janice Jordan created a series of designs using an ivory base or a delicate pink base, layered with an organic swirl design in a MinxLusion, Matte Silver, or Matte Gold tracing.

The organic swirls give the impression of sea foam and gentle movement.

“It was such an honor to be part of the Alexander McQueen show,” said Marian. “The level of craftsmanship and the brief of the collection pushed me to explore new techniques and designs. I really enjoy the different challenges that come with each collection and always look forward to the show, as it is truly a unique experience.”
