Chinese Design Concepts
Akiyo Sakamoto created her brand in Paris and brought it with her when she moved to Shanghai. She creates beautiful, elegant pieces of jewellery from vintage beads, buttons and metal detailings Akiyo sources herself in Europe, mainly France. Each piece has its own character and carries with it Akiyo's sophisticated style. The result are refined, dramatic, unique pieces that are simple yet fascinating.
Slow fashion at its best, La Paruriere demonstrates its respect for process in the care and attention Akiyo gives to the quality of her handmade pieces. The materials are carefully selcted for quality and design and are reclaimed, recycled, vintage. Each piece is designed and composed by Akiyo with each component playing a significant role in the aesthetic effect of the finished piece. These are not mass-produced, generic objects but lovingly created collages that are wearable and distinctive.
The packaging, also designed by Akiyo makes her pieces the perfect gift, if you can bear to give them away.
