Mathematically geometric, crafted from 18k Siam gold and etched with intricate detailing that demands closer inspection, Bangkok-based Patcharavipa’s Spring/Summer 2018 Ginkgo Metrics collection takes its name from the Ginkgo Leaf – paying homage to a single treasured specimen, which was used to imprint its ‘living fossil’ pattern across the collection, symbolising longevity, vitality, hope and peace. 

Preserving the craftsmanship of meticulous Thai expertise and incorporating both Oshibana and Ikebana – the Japanese arts of flower pressing and arranging – as well as original amulet designs from the Ainu Tribe, each piece takes months of delicate handling to create organic contrasts between nature and geometry.
