UNOde50 - A Creative Universe comes to Atlanta

A Spanish brand of handcrafted jewelry whose hallmark is its unique and distinctive design, UNOde50 was founded in the late 1990s by a group of creative artists who resolved to create a fashion jewelry brand that would break all existing molds. Designing pieces in their own unique style, the brand soon became known for its innovative and trendsetting approach. UNOde50 was launched with the original and exclusive philosophy of creating 50 of each design, giving rise to the brand name. After being acquired by arbiter of design, José Azulay, what followed was a revolution in which the techniques and processes of traditional jewelry-making were replaced by a newly cultivated process of creating characteristic jewelry with decidedly original designs.

As part of the commitment, UNO constructs and manufactures its products at the headquarters in Madrid. The element of “Made in Spain,” the personality and Spanish DNA of each UNOde50 piece are guarantees of the quality and assurance transmitted by a work of creativity that is full of vitality, optimism and a zest for life. A brand that doesn’t settle for conform, the collection of iconic pieces continues to grow, accumulating history and passion along the way. In the process of experimentation, the use of new materials and combinations helps advance, improve, evolve, with the same desire to create jewelry that is daring and individual. 

Edgy and before its time, each piece is a work of art, a distinctive piece with a voice that conveys strength and energy. Created, organic designs based on forms found in nature, UNOde50 jewelry is inspired by emotions that trigger unique sensations and take pride in being perfectly imperfect, brave, and able to evoke a suggestive and stimulating universe of feeling. Each of its pieces are unmistakable thanks to the use of a proprietary alloy that respects the artisanal nature of the manufacturing process. In addition to leather, crystals and pearls, the alloy used by the brand is one of its distinguishing features. An iconography that is embodied in the two collections UNOde50 launches each year, the alloy covers organic designs inspired by everyday objects and natural forms.

Not only creating pieces specific for men and women, the Madrid-born jewelry brand known for its bold, creative handcrafted designs, has also recently launched Genderless by UNOde50.  A new, gender neutral collection that symbolizes the strongest unions, embraces gender equality, and reaffirms freedom of expression.  Genderless by UNOde50 is a statement of “Love Has No Rules.” Love should always be celebrated and never judged.  Love is genderless. Unisex pieces have always been a part of UNOde50’s brand DNA. The new collection, consisting of eight curated bracelet sets, provides a sleek modern look for loved ones to express their unity. The bracelet combinations, inspired by UNOde50’s most iconic designs offer unique styles in gold and silver, with select styles juxtaposed with genuine leather. Genderless by UNOde50 celebrates love, empowerment, and being true to oneself. This nonconformist and visionary spirit has always been a part of UNOde50’s core values.

J&M Davidson SS18

For Spring Summer 2018, J&M Davidson takes us on a colorful journey via Mexico City and Istanbul, with a vibrantly-hued palette and bold silhouettes inspired by the cities’ striking landscapes.

The collection transports one effortlessly from city to city, with designs that capture the bohemian spirit of an urban nomad. Subtle details, tactile textures and bold proportions lend the collection a spirited, optimistic attitude.

Vividly saturated colors lifted from the canvases of Diego Rivera, Henri Mattisse and David Hockney embolden romantic peasant blouses and maxi dresses in fuchsia pink and apple green, evoking Mexico’s candy-striped buildings. The yellow floral silk brocade Anatolia coat, inspired by those traditionally worn during the Ottoman Empire, stands out alongside the masculine-meets-feminine twill Piper jacket, natural hemp Hobie duster coat and striped Anatolia coat in ecru and navy blue linen. Paired with the white cotton organdie Rose dress and easy, airy Ariel top, the collection captures the cool blend of androgyny and nonchalant femininity synonymous with J&M Davidson.

The shapes and colors of the Spring Summer 2018 handbag styles reflect the relaxed mood of a modern day vagabond – uncomplicated silhouettes in rich navy, sahara beige and caramel, as well as Mediterranean camellia pink and China blue. The new silhouettes include the Axel – an effortless, everyday suede tote that’s practical and unfussy, with a handy pocket hidden at its base: ideal for a woman on the move. For evening, the Eleonor handbag is something a little more structured while still insouciant – the brass hardware, oblong shape and sturdy frame allow it to make a quiet statement. Smaller but no less smart, the Aime is a vintage-inspired top-handle bag brought up to date with a discreet row of studs – it’s elegant yet carefree, much like the J&M Davidson woman.

With its exotic color palette, effortless charm and bohemian flare, the Spring Summer 2018 collection conjures up a sense of urban escapism.
