Linden Cook X Dina Broadhurst: This Collab Is A Must-See
What do you get when Australian artist and visionary Dina Broadhurst partners with cult Australian jewellery brand Linden Cook? Read on...
One is revered for one-of-a-kind artwork, the other for handmade jewellery collections where no two pieces are ever the same. So what happens when they join forces? Just ask Linden Cook and Dina Broadhurst, who have partnered on this collaboration to celebrate Linden Cook's Collection 3.0. A fellow advocate for the exploration of untamed and natural beauty, Australian artist and visionary, Dina, photographed the campaign for Collection 3.0, and also created 4 bespoke artworks influenced by the brand’s latest offering.
And what an offering it is! Designed and handmade out of Melbourne by Linden Cook and her eldest daughter and business partner Georgie Amad, the 32-piece collection debuts new patchwork styles that were developed in the final production stages using offcuts from styles within the collection rather than on paper.
In a bold nod to the brand's enduring love affair with imperfections, character, mystery and sensuality, the sculptural statement pieces and multi-functional patchwork pieces explore raw textural finishes, carefully moulded and shaped in order to retain their already unique and beautiful imperfections. This idea of expression of individuality is further exemplified by the many pieces in the range designed with elements that can be added or subtracted by the wearer.
Of the collaborative partnership Dina says, “Partnering with Linden Cook was an effortless fusion of a vision that embraced natural beauty and the rawness of female emotions and natural materials. Being able to explore the subtitles of the feminine during an intimate day, uncovering light and shade, reflection and inner quiet, confidence, freedom and form. Discovering how one woman's beauty can be dissected to stand for all. Capturing the human body in intimate detail alongside an alluring collection of jewels, each mirroring the other, the facets and faces we all have, the layers we build, the stories we share and the moments that shape us. That beauty is not in perfection, but in expression and acceptance."
