Kattri for Banneya London
Another exciting week here at Banneya London! We’ve steadily been growing our portfolio of designers and with so much success we thought, why stop there? Joining us now, is a sophisticated, contemporary fine jewellery brand – KATTRI. The designer, Amanda Gerbasi is Brazilian and her heritage has heavily inspired the new Corcovado collection she designed exclusively for Banneya London.
Kattri combines an elegant use of minimalist design with the most exquisitely chosen gemstones. Having studied architecture, this has been a constant inspiration. Taking a nature as her inspiration this time, the Corcovado collection is rooted in Amanda’s design ethos, using unique jewellery materials and gemstones combined with fluid organic form.
We are so excited that Amanda has exclusively designed the Corcovado collection for us here at Banneya London, and these edgy, unique designs will look stunning whichever combination you choose! We took some time to speak to Amanda about the Corcovado collection, and why she wanted to partner with Banneya.
Banneya's proposition is great from a designer’s perspective as you can just focus on creating a great collection and nothing more.
BL: Where does the inspiration for your designs come from?
AG: My inspiration came from paying close attention to the world around me. I believe having an inquisitive eye is the key to observing something new and inspirational.
BL: Why did you decide to partner with Banneya London?
AG: I love the concept of the customer being able to customise their pieces online. Finally, the Banneya team – and especially the founders – are an absolute pleasure to deal with.
BL: How would you describe your style?
BL: What inspired you to start designing jewellery?
AG: Because Brazil is one of the world’s largest gemstone suppliers I’ve had a lot of contact with gemstones and jewellery from a early age (both sides of my family are really into gemstone jewellery!). I fell in love with gemstones early and by age 14 I designed my first pair of earrings and ring using aquamarines bought on a family trip to Minas Gerais (great mining state of Brazil).
We are so lucky to have Amanda on board and we are over the moon to be launching this stunning new collection!!! Can’t wait to tell you more news soon! Let us know what you thinking using #BanneyaLondon.
