This Luxury Jewellery Collection Is Rubbish

With ironic humor a pervading force in global fashion right now, Hollie Paxton is the latest designer to subvert the status quo with a tongue-in-cheek collection.

“Rubbish” is a jewelry range which “intends to comment on the throwaway culture that’s prevalent in Western society, challenging both the viewer and the wearer to question their relationship with societies gluttonous excess and waste.” Accordingly, Paxton has taken various items of waste refuse — including receipts, candy and gum wrappers — and recast them in precious materials, using labor-intensive processes such as enameling. The end result is a series of bougie adornments fit for any king or queen.
