There is beauty in the design and engineering of a machine, just as there is beauty in art. It may be a different kind of beauty, but it’s beauty nonetheless. A motorcycle, as a beauteous accomplishment of engineers and designers, deserves a complement. Bold and brash, the Accelerator calls on sparkling crystal and spikes to provide an elegant edge. Orli says, “You could go from Ducati to decorous in five seconds flat with this one.”
Like many of us, Orli has always harbored a fascination with motorcycles. The experience of riding a motorcycle has captured the popular imagination for decades. It encompasses the freedom of movement on the open road and the ability to take in the sights and smells of nature at your own pace. The lone rider on a vast expanse of highway, contemplating the natural world and feeling the profound openness of immense space, is an intriguing and inspiring image. As biker jargon, ironside refers to the parts and detailing comprising the top half of a motorcycle. Orli’s Ironside takes iconic features of motorcycle style, including spikes, chains, and suedes, and presents an elegant collection of chopper-inspired work drawing its aesthetic from the ostentatious costume jewelry of the Eighties, when bigger was always better.
