Cynthia Fong has been a friend of Swelle for a few years now; you may remember her from the Designer Series, a feature in which the then Central Saint Martins student shared her projects from their knitwear program and displayed a flair for avant-garde forms and intricate textures. Most recently, she worked for James Long in London, the young British knitwear designer and current fashion editor favourite, contributing to his AW 2013-14 mens and womenswear collections. Way to go, Cynthia!
We'll be seeing more of Cynthia's graduate and post-grad designs which are nothing short of stunning (as the look from her menswear grad show below illustrates), but today I wanted to introduce you to her jewellery collection which she has created as a side project under the label Cyn Tung Fong. She tells me it's something a bit different to indulge in after long days of knitting, though we can see her love of playing with colour combinations and mixing different textures is reflected in these vibrant accessory pieces.
The collection includes neckpieces, bracelets, cuffs, and earrings which feature beading and charms in glass, metal, crystal and acrylic, and is currently available at her shops on Etsy and ASOS with prices ranging from £3 to £45, so there's something for everybody. Have a look!
