Zoe Bradley’s Magical wrapping for Christmas with Fine Jewellery: Box Sets shot for December British Vogue. November 06, 2015 09:30
The new issue of British Vogue, whose front cover is graced by model of the moment Karlie Kloss, is packed full of festive cheer from the best parties to the most colourful and sparkling accessories. And talking about all things sparkly and shiny, as you might expect with the countdown to Christmas, we would ask you to take a peek at page 256 - entitled Box Sets, its our 6 page editorial shoot showcasing the best high jewellery.
It was a striking collaboration working alongside British female photographer Lacey, whose clients include Louis Vuitton, Dior, NARS, Kate Spade and Bloomingdales. Her eye for graphic detail and composition is a perfect collaboration with Zoe’s clean-cut modern style.
Vogue’s Jewellery Editor, Carol Woolton was responsible for editing the finest pieces of jewellery from the world’s best high-end jewellery brands.
Zoe was responsible for designing and creating the intricate and refined colour palette of paper sets. When asked to collaborate with Lacey on this issue Zoe and Lacey discussed concepts of states of wrapping and unwrapping, with a magical feel. A recent trip to Japan inspired Zoe to explore the ‘Art or wrapping.’ Exploring Japanese wrapping styles and a very subtle palette of flesh tone, ivory, silver, gold, and teal with a hint of red. All the wrapping was created and hand sculpted by Zoe and her team from there studio. Modern geometric patterned ribbons, spools, and hundreds of intricate bows were created to adorn every miniature present and box in the paired back colour palette in order to highlight the details and forms. A highlight is the feather quill pen, which is intricately laser cut from a metallic finished paper, which has a wonderful luminous quality.
The soft and muted feminine colour palette works well against the bold shot of teal and red colour background. It also let’s the intricate pieces of fine jewellery shine out.
