Interview with Mallarino Bijoux

allison earrings

I love pieces from Mallarino Bijoux representing modern & antique feel at the same time
this is the second interview for firstlook magazine
found at an original post here:

퍼스트룩 2번째 인터뷰입니다
한글본은 공식 퍼스트룩 블로그에서
읽어주세요 ^^

caroline bracelet

What does Mallarino Bijoux wants to portray in design?
Is it a realistic view or the dreamy presence?

Mallarino is a mirror of who we are: a mix of both worlds, our jewellery
and our style has the South American exuberance with that touch of
European sophistication. so I would say is more real,
although in both you can find magic.

cecilia studs

Distinctive feature about the line?

The technique!
Filigree use to be the way jewellery was made ever since the Romans,
today is almost impossible to find artisans who can manage
this ancient technique.

cecilia necklace

This season/collection's theme is:

Colombian jungles are breathtaking, a mixture of wildness and extreme delicate beauty,
it's a very inspiring contrast. Our pieces try to reflect that
harmony. That exact point between two opposing forces that combine naturally
to create something magical.

cristina earrings

If one has to choose one jewelry to wear (earrings, ring, necklace,
bracelet, anklet) what would you recommend?

Don't overdo it.
One strong piece and depends on the mood.
I tend to have a soft spot for necklaces.


When did you realize that jewelry was meant to be your start for designing?

The urge to preserve a beautiful tradition.
For centures the art of hand-sewing jewels in Colombia has been passed from
father to son, it demands extraordinary manual skills...
With the arrival of mass/chain production and cheap imports,
this wonderful savior-faire was threatened by the minute.


Do you like to be with people for inspirations or put alone
and just naturally wait until they occur?

Both, inspiration comes unexpected, at the weirdest moments and
can be triggered by anything, a song, a smell,
someone's hands...
