Asal by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for Gehna
As many of you from my social media would know already, ASAL by designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla hosted their first jewellery preview with Gehna Jewellers in our capital city Delhi on Friday 21st April ,4-7 pm at the ASAL Store DLF Emporio Mall, Delhi.
I got the chance to interact with the man of the hour, Sandeep Khosla about the line so stay tuned till the end for a quick video tête-à -tête with him.
With an illustrious heritage of over 30 years of crafting iconic jewellery, Gehna Jewellers has always set itself firmly at the helm of prodigal innovations. Boasting of adroit collaborations, the jewellery label has time and again set a resounding precedent in the jewellery making industry, creating benchmarks at every step on the way. Another such step is the splendid collaboration between Gehna and ASAL by Abu Sandeep, the label by iconic designers Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla.
Renowned for their inimitable eye for beauty, an exacting attention to detail and a focus on eternal style, this season the powerhouse duo join forces with Gehna Jewellers to present a transcendent collection, ASAL by Abu Sandeep for Gehna. Staying true to their aesthetic, Elegance is the last word, and what could be more exquisitely elegant than polkis, which form the core of this breathtaking collection.
Much like their work in fashion, traditional jewellery concepts of necklace sets, earrings, bangles and rings have been entirely reimagined through their artistic eye. Old world charm reinvented for the 21st century. Stand out pieces include the 'between the finger' ring, which is set to become the statement piece of the season! An absolute feast for the senses, ASAL by Abu Sandeep and Gehna have come together to create a treasure trove of jewellery to be coveted by those who seek to possess the Fine and Fabulous.
The collection is inspired by two iconic Indian flowers, the Lotus and Mogra or Indian Jasmine. The delicacy of floral motifs mirrors those ASAL uses extensively in their embroidery, the layered, three-dimesnsional beauty of petals with the heady fragrance that is Mogra spells utter romance. Polki is a passion and the duo wanted to pay homage to it in their own unique way. This is deliciously fresh, detail-centric jewellery.
ASAL by Abu Sandeep is an absolutely contemporary expression of the classical. It is informed by India's unsurpassed legacy of Luxury, be it Art, Craft, Architecture or Adornment, but it is a brand new avatar of that tradition. This collaboration with Gehna is that same Spirit unleashed in the form of Jewels that are decidedly Now and Forever. Beauty must possess Timelessness
Bearing testimony to this landmark association is Mr. Sunil Datwani, whose vision has led the jewellery house to a 30-year-old bejewelled legacy. Always in the pursuit of excellence, Mr. Datwani has transformed the jewellery label into a platform that flourishes on dynamic alliances and creative endeavours.
