No matter how completely black the night sky may be, the lights of the cityscape may make it seem as bright as day. This is particularly true of Ginza, one of Tokyo’s most cosmopolitan districts. The Ginza evokes city lights by providing a luminescent neon color palette of neon and pastel pinks and reds against a combination of gold accents and black chains evoking the urban night. Orli says, “When I think of city lights and of looking up at a black sky only to be confronted with blinding brightness, I think of Ginza in Tokyo, which also happens to be a very stylish place, so I guess it’s fitting to evoke this district with a necklace.”
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.
