Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
On Saturday, January 14, in Milan David Yurman held its first-ever men’s exhibition with artist Anthony James. The brand’s chief design director Evan Yurman hosted the evening at Chiesa San Paolo Converso celebrating James’ geometric, bright, and reflective sculptures used to display the new jewelry collection.
“Anthony’s work is both striking and thought-provoking at the same time,” said Yurman. “He plays on social constructs and creates pieces that make you think differently about space, time, and shape. His approach to innovation mirrors ours; we both use sculpture and form to tell stories, and to connect with people. These parallels have drawn me to his work, and our exhibition in Milan, a city center of art, design and culture, is a fitting stage to finally bring our two worlds together.”
“The dodecahedron sculpture I’ve created for David Yurman specifically is borne from the idea of infinity and the universe. Looking into the sculpture, one feels the presence of multiple layers of reality almost within grasp, yet fragmented by the reflection of the glass. The dodecahedron form reflects my interest in materially representing a multi-dimensional universe,” said James.
Guests to the exhibition’s opening included Mads Mikkelsen, Massimiliano Locatelli, Tim Blanks, Jay Fielden, Massimiliano Locatelli, and Tamu McPherson.
