Gli occhi lo cercano costantemente: il bello. Ma quando bello è anche sinonimo di lusso si arriva alla perfezione. Girovagando su internet ho scoperto il brand parigino Akshay e mi sono rifatta gli occhi: alta pelletteria e materiali preziosi che si combinano e danno vita a bangles di lusso.
The eyes are constantly looking for the beautiful, and when this is luxury synonymous, perfection comes out. On the web I discovered a Parisian brand called Akshay and I look at something pleasant for a change: leather and high-quality materials combine make luxury bangles .
All bangles are handmade by Parisian artisans who working Sterling silver 950/1000 and crocodile, alligator, lizard and stingray skin. That’s right: I told “stingray”, rays cartilaginous fish as manta ray. This particular skin type was used in ancient times in Japan to cover the handle of katana and to adorn the most elegant armor. More after with the Art Deco this work will know his golden moment when this skin was used to cover and decorate furnishings, furniture, chairs, lamps and beauty boxes. The stingray skin is tough and durable, as a shell with particular grain.
Akshay is one of the few brands that uses stingray leather to create her bangles because work-process requires ability, craft precision and technology. For 2014 the collection grow up with Inclose and Fineness lines, added to the Premium Lady and Premium Slave lines. All exclusive Akshay bracelets are customizable and sell from 840 to 1200 €, the store is in Paris and they ship worldwide.
We were talking about beautiful and luxury, with Akshay also talk about elegance, sophistication and tradition that has never lost over the years.
