Founder of London-based jewelry label Alan Crocetti is trying to broaden the men's jewelry market. Central Saint Martins’s graduate combines traditional motifs with contemporary design in his collections. At the same time, Alan believes that the jewelry industry is a bit stuck in the past.

 

The new capsule is actually a reprise of pieces from Crocetti’s first, second, and third collections: “Back then I wasn’t really able to produce [the designs], it was the beginning of my career so I was still figuring myself out,” the designer tells. “And I just thought, it was those pieces that brought me to where I am right now, so they deserved to be launched again. They’re vital for the identity of the brand.” 

The most spectacular item in his new collection is a nose plaster. Transformation from pain into glamor - what could be better?

 

“The nose plaster was the first piece that I designed in 2014”, Crocetti tells. “It’s about the fractured man, about fractured souls. He’s trying to get out of the toxic masculinity that somehow has always pulled men back. That’s where the plaster comes from – us trying to fix ourselves.”

 

Alan Crocetti admits that he never created his brand in order to violate standards. “My message is this: be true to yourself, be proud to wear, and wear what you want. There is nothing more powerful than self-love.”
