Adam described every detail of this dazzling collaboration, shot in eight different locations and produced along with a team of fifty people during one marathon of a day. We had a stimulating conversation about fashion, street style, photography and the evolution of the Spanish label, which brings a minimal touch to upcoming winter. An enriching encounter where he shared his vision on fine jewelry, the fashion industry, his concept of beauty, the magic of ugliness and his exciting point of view on the big fashion weeks.
An allure of exclusiveness is the signature of Aristocrazy's new collection, showing a clear evolution from the original jewelry concept launched in 2010: a more refined line with a less casual and more sophisticated series of essentials, but equally compelling. The Spanish label has evolved towards a kind of simplicity that enables us to define our own style through timeless pieces, high-quality materials and fashion inspiration.
The new collection is a flash of stylish avant-garde pieces which use geometry as the main theme, whilst four different selections which find perfection in simplicity: Confetti is fun and colourful, an easy breezy touch to enjoy the upcoming autumn. Fun is young and fresh, showing different shapes of cloves and horseshoes, and is also one of the most approachable lines. Nimes is modern and original in the use of different threads which represent the woven of denim fabric. Metrie plays with geometry in pure straight and curved lines designed to highlight the shimmer of natural stones so you can hit the next Christmas Party in yellow and pink gold. Essentials reveals the classic side of the label in a series of pieces that will persist over the years and trends, and Diamonds, includes the most exclusive and iconic pieces in eighteen carat gold and diamonds. A smaller and more selected collection, that Adam Katz has captured with the same delicate spirit.
Born in San Francisco, Adam grew up in Washington, and had his first camera at the age of fifteen or sixteen. His father was a photographer and his mother is a fashion designer so he gradually became interested in this visually stimulating environment. It wasn’t until 2007 that he started to take photos of people “I was helping a friend with a video in a bar, he was a very good looking guy, I had my camera with me and he thought it was a really nice photo…” His international vocation is very strong, as Adam is based in Amsterdam and thinking of moving again “maybe to Copenhagen, we’ll see, I’m American and it’s difficult to get a visa, but I don’t spend anytime anywhere, I’m always travelling.”
