Back when ladies were called ladies and nobles lived in castles, knights walked around in suits made of chains. Armor has come a long way since then, but the aesthetic of a wide swatch of chains remains in the urban consciousness. The Armor provides a low, bold, elegant drape and a rich variety of juxtapositions: black and silver, lightweight chains both thick and thin, neon and pastel hues, matte and shimmering finishes, and an ancient concept with an urban vibe. Orli says, “The Armor makes a bold statement. It’s light, but it’s large and bright and cool and so much the opposite of itself.”
Cities tend to invite love-hate relationships. On the one hand, urban centers can be large, impersonal, overwhelming, rough, hectic, crowded, and cold. On the other hand, they can also be hubs of cultural activity and human accomplishment. Inherently opposite and exciting, the metropolises of the world both awe and confound, deconstructing preconceived notions of city life and constructing new ones simultaneously. Using durable, lightweight metals in a variety of shades juxtaposed with natural imagery and bright and organic color palettes, Deconstruct presents an interpretation of cityscapes and urban style.
