Silver. Handmade. Tribal. These have always been some of the key facets of Hill to Street’s pieces, promising its wearers unique artisan pieces which are street style friendly.
Adding to the collection this Deepavali / Christmas 2020, Hill to Street has collaborated with Malaysian personality, model and yoga teacher – Anuja Ananthan to come up with a pristine collection of pieces paying tribute to the indomitable spirit of the feminine.
We imagined traversing through tribal lands and their art of jewellery. First was the “Land of the Kings”, Rajasthan, the largest state in India – rich in Rajput history endowed with magnificent forts and palaces, known for its prestigious royalty and well known for its tribal jewellery, realm of red sands, golden forts and amber coloured sunsets. Next, the land of the Sahara desert, Morocco- a land of dramatic beauty and ecological diversity; its millennial old Imperial cities, red clay walls, buildings of blue mosaic and bustling medinas of colourful tanneries and craftsmen.
Just like the vastness and beauty birthed to form these lands, the name of the collection Embrace your inner Goddess seeks to celebrate the multi-faceted woman; a woman who can be anything she wants to be even if those things are seemingly opposite. Powerful yet soft, strong yet delicate, creative yet strategic, outspoken yet understanding. Each piece tells a story and becomes richer in history with the wearer.
The collection includes eight pieces altogether, ranging from funky hoops, elegant studs and festive drops, a glamour choker necklace and a cuff bracelet that are handcrafted in sterling silver. It is also the first time Hill to Street has incorporated semi-precious stones, cubic zirconia and ralton with sterling silver, giving the collection a vibrant feel in reflecting the festive spirit of Deepavali and Christmas. The collection seeks to pay tribute to ancient times where stones and metal were more than just an adornment ;instead pieces to be cherished from repetition, symmetry and orderly progression in design; as is the order of the cosmic universe.
On this collection, founder of Hill to Street, Tiffany Teoh said “We designed these pieces with an essence of tribal, ethnic and vintage feel in mind. While being occasion worthy, Embrace your inner Goddess is jewellery for souls who are looking to grace their casual everyday streetwear or traditional outfits with statement pieces.”
A quote from Anuja about the collection, “I have always loved ethnic jewellery especially those from my native country India, which are not easily sourced. The concept of Hill to Street: Embrace your inner Goddess was born out of a passion of sharing my culture with ethnic silver jewellery. We played with stones to add dimension and colour, keeping in mind how one would feel adorning it. Personally, each piece manifests differently for me energy-wise. For e.g. I feel powerful wearing Neelkanth and the hoop earrings, incorporating my birthstone, the peridot, makes me feel like I have a spring in my step every time I put them on!”
This exclusive collection comes in only limited pieces with each piece skilfully handcrafted by our artisans using sterling silver. Intended to give a vintage look to this collection, the silver parts are oxidized with matte finish.
All in all, Hill to Street X Anuja is a collection of extraordinary pieces that are charming yet timeless and an ode to the feminine. To view the full collection, visit www.hilltostreet.com
