THE GOLD STAN­DARD

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - THE CUT -

Shaun Leane spent seven years train­ing as a gold­smith in Hat­ton Gar­den be­fore col­lab­o­rat­ing with his friend Alexan­der Mcqueen. Their part­ner­ship lasted 17 years, and more than 30 of Leane’s pieces ap­peared at the block­buster Sav­age Beauty ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brat­ing Mcqueen at the V&A in 2015. Leane’s new col­lec­tion, En­twined Pe­tal, is what he de­scribes as a ‘gothic fairy tale take on flo­ral jew­ellery’, with each piece avail­able in white, yel­low or rose gold. His sig ature is his ‘line’ and it is patently ob­vi­ous in this range: sin­u­ous yet el­e­gant – and widely pas­tiched. Leane, how­ever, re­mains the orig­i­nal, and the best.
