The Pyrrha x Paul Smith jewelry collection is inspired by Smith’s iconic coat of arms
VANCOUVER, March 1, 2018 / – Building on its 10-year retail relationship, Pyrrha has teamed up with celebrated designer, Paul Smith to introduce a very personal and unique brand collaboration.
The Pyrrha x Paul Smith collection is based on the whimsical imagery of the brand’s crest, designed by Sir Paul Smith in 2000.
“We have a deep appreciation for the quality of Paul Smith’s work, and to collaborate with such a creative force in the industry was extremely rewarding for us,” said Pyrrha designer, Wade Papin. “It was exciting to have the opportunity to apply Pyrrha’s aesthetic to the original imagery. Paul always says that ‘you can find inspiration in everything,’ and we definitely subscribe to that philosophy.”
A jacket with six arms, a rabbit for good luck, and Smith’s famous motto, ‘Never Assume’ are featured prominently in the capsule collection. Each piece is handcrafted in reclaimed sterling silver at the Pyrrha Studio in Vancouver, Canada.
The Pyrrha x Paul Smith collection is now available online at www.paulsmith.com and in select Paul Smith stores in London, Hamburg, New York, LA and Las Vegas. Prices start at $230.
Pyrrha designers, Danielle and Wade Papin have been creating jewelry in their Vancouver studio since 1995. Handcrafted using authentic wax seals and imagery from the Victorian era, each Pyrrha talisman is designed to inspire the wearer with its symbolic meaning culled from heraldry. The complete line of Pyrrha jewelry encompasses a selection of necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and charms, and each piece is cast in reclaimed precious metals using time honored, old world techniques. Pyrrha can be found at leading boutiques around the world and the brand’s flagship store in Los Angeles.
