We worked with Kristian’s team to create sculpted metal couture dresses, decorative features and belts in the collection. The Ancient Greek Griffin plays a huge part of this collection as the majestic guardian of the divine. The body of the lion and the head and wings of an eagle is set into sculptured gold metal pieces adding striking Olympian power to the celestial collection.
