Trick of the Eye
This collection was deeply inspired by the Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid. Zaha Hadid gave architecture a new expressive identity. She was known to constantly push the boundaries of materials and ultimately the form of buildings. Stacey Wang approaches her first women’s collection in a similar way by pushing the limits of leather and leather making techniques. Most regard leather as a flat material. Stacey transforms leather from a 2-dimensional surface into distinct 3-dimensional jewelry. After many years as a men’s leather accessories designer, known for unique and clever bowties, Stacey launches a collection for women in 3-dimensional leather and gold. Applying the art technique trompe l'oeil, the jewelry is quickly finding new fans who love it for the ability to be seen differently from all angles as in architecture.
