Inspired by a spread of earrings in an antique shop window, the Gilt reimagines old-world style in the context of the bright, geometric Art Deco aesthetic. Incorporating the metallic gold accents of the Gilded Age and the geometric glamor of the Art Deco movement, Orli has created vibrant elegance. Orli says, “This color combination of crackling rose and blush rose, combined with gilded accents, is very complementary. These earrings have an unmistakable antique-shop feel with a modern accent because of the sharp geometric edges.”
Orli likes beautiful things, and in this, she suspects that she is not alone. In fact, she suspects that you may agree. After all, form often follows function, but within form, there are multitudinous opportunities to amplify aesthetic appeal. Enter the movements of applied art, an all-encompassing approach to art and creativity that reaches far beyond the fine arts to touch industrial design and everyday objects with aesthetic design. Using fluid draping, clear and strong colors both bright and soft, and Orli’s characteristically deft blending of vintage and modern styling, Aesthete pieces are inspired by four such movements: Bauhaus, Art Neouveau, Art Deco, and Arts and Crafts.
