Natasha Zinko X DUO
Natasha Zinko is a London based jewelry and ready-to-wear designer. She is a graduate of Central St Martin’s, where she studied Jewelry Design. One of the most talked-about young labels in London, the brand has undergone an impressive trajectory – what began with Zinko designing pieces ad-hoc in response to requests from close friends now sees the collections carried globally in the finest luxury stores. Zinko’s free-spirited, whimsical ready-to-wear collections honours the codes of the finest craftsmanship and are created entirely in her London atelier. Playful use of color, volume and proportions is key. Zinko’s talent for highlighting the female form in unexpected ways sees boldly sculptural pieces executed in luxurious fabrics. Her fine jewelry is a play on symbols, familiar or proverbial, but given a new translation. Icons such as skulls and skeletons, crosses, angel wings, cobwebs, hearts, and the evil eye; to name a few; are reworked on gold and precious stones.
