“UNTIL BOTH YOUR HANDS CLOSED ON MY CHEST, LIKE A PAIR OF WINGS ENDING THEIR FLIGHT.“ – Pablo Neruda –
A hand’s touch at Ermite Fashion represents that haptic embrace from one’s heart and romantic comfort hiding among memories. Fashion and accessories designer Veronica Antonucci presents “Your Hands“ AW 17/18 collection, materialising that reassuring everyday presence in the form of the recycled 925 silver unisex “Hand Brooch“ for coats and jackets, “Hand Collar Pins“ and “Hand Chain Cufflinks.“ Through the modernisation of old and traditional techniques, the designer manipulates high quality metals as delicately as knit and lace, preserving yet pushing the limits of Swiss craftsmanship. Opening the doors to surrealism, “Your Hands“ collection calls the wearer to confidently sign the canvas that the world of today represents, easily integrating itself to his/her own philosophy of style. Its unique mission: to make it shine brighter. Embodying the soul of a second-hand amulet, this Swiss handmade contemporary jewellery echoes Pablo Neruda’s dream world both in time and place. Through the marriage of her Italian roots and immigration history to Switzerland, Veronica wishes “Your Hands“ to accompany her client along his/her inner journey.
Sourcing the highest quality of recycled silver, the collection is casted in Germany and handmade finished in Switzerland, observing an ethical process of production. In a world where fast always wins first, it is dear to the designer’s heart to convey a slow-living lifestyle through her pieces, allowing everyone in quest for self-accomplishment to appreciate time again, while spreading environmental awareness in their circle. With a fashion design background at the F+F School of Art and Design in Zurich, Veronica designs with durability in mind and turns past aesthetics into present desire and self-confidence into a jewel for life. Her creations adorn one’s wrists and chest in the name of integrity and the real. The hand opens the door for new symbols to extend the collection in the near future.
“Your Hands“ collection will be sold exclusively in selected shops, where the customer will be personally introduced to the brand and its individual philosophy; the e-commerce platform of Ermite Fashion will offer another alternative to purchase Veronica’s designs. “Your Hands“ will make its first entrance in the fashion arena next December 2017 at home in Switzerland at the Zermatt Fashion Weekend pop up store for young designers. Last but not least, 2% of the sold pieces in 2018 will be donated to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS), an international and non-profit marine wildlife conservation organisation. Born at the Ionian Sea, it is dear to Veronica to help preserving the environment of her childhood.
