Claude Simonon x Basic Rights
The collaboration came out of an encounter with BR creative director Freddie. “I was at a photography show and I met Claude’s brother Louis. He was wearing these amazing rings and when I asked him where they came from he explained his brother made them.”
Work began on the concept at first with inspiration taken from material in the Islamic art museum of Cairo and eventually settled on a design which features an 8-point golden star set on a wide square silver face.
“The star is symbolic of the inner North Star, a sort of internal guidance. Something that remains strong and visible even when things feel dark and confusing. There is something in all of us telling us the direction we must go in. If only we’ll listen...”
Each limited edition piece is crafted by hand in Claude’s London studio out of Sterling Silver and 9ct Gold.
