After the launch of their first “Office Supplies” jewelry collection, Virgil Abloh and Jacob & Co. are back with a second wave of luxury items. Inspired once again by the simple object of the paper clip, the duo elevates the notion of banality with a new line sold to order, produced in 18-carat white, yellow or pink gold.
About what the collection means to him, Abloh came to Instagram to explain himself:
“[The collection] is a concept for fine jewelry I developed and have been sitting on for a while now…It’s all cryptic & metaphoric but that’s as much of the concept as the adolescent idea of making a paperclip bracelet in grade school meets the blinding aspirational quality of a Rocafella chain. It’s my whole art practice in one object.”
Jacob & Co. añade: “creating connection between one another is one of the most powerful things in the world. Just like the paper clip earrings, one link connected to another, creating a circle of power that brings you endless strength, confidence and energy.”
