Jewellery guru Dead Davidson adopted clean structure and the beauty of simplicity as his muse for his latest spring collection.
“Modern architecture is what I was leaning towards, very clean architectural pieces with the subtle hints of gemstone”, said Davidson.
The pieces featured popping colors with the use of enamel in poppy, teal, nude, black and white. With rose gold popping up everywhere this season, Davidson chose to feature this pink hue in his designs. His ‘Armour Cuff’ featured in enRoute Magazine, is a great piece that can be sported by any skin tone.
Davidson says that his goal for this collection was to keep all of his designs timeless. This way, collectors can continuously add pieces without the collection looking dated.
“I want pieces that people can wear and add on to, it’s timeless pieces that they are going to have for years, not so trend driven and season specific.”
Sitting down with the designer adjacent to his collection displayed in Holt Renfrew, he seemed cool and collected. A definite confidence about him, he says his job doesn’t feel like work. When I asked him where he goes to get away from the bustle of Toronto’s energy, he responded with an indefinite answer. Davidson explained that after growing up on a farm in Manitoba, he doesn’t feel the need to escape life in the city.
“I love that lifestyle, I love the go, go, go, but it’s not for everyone.”
After proving that his life is more suited for the fast lane, I wondered what was in store for the designer’s future.
“I think that you need to be continually bringing out new, and you know, changing things so that people want to continue to follow you. I want to continue building my collection in Canada and the rest of the world, bringing this aesthetic to different markets.”
