We already professed our love for Sabine’s creations in our Moi Moi Moi issue, back when she was still known as Sabine Ghanem, the Lebanese-Egyptian designer based in London. Same initials, different name: Sabine G. becomes Sabine Getty and launches a flamboyant first collection to celebrate the brand’s new identity. Inspired by the Memphis group, the Italian architectural movement whose work revolves around geometry and bold colors, “Memphis 2016” is a flash of yellow, pink, green and blue in modern zig-zag shapes or flowing waves. All pieces – rings, chokers, bracelets in harmonious arrangements of gold and topaz – are crafted by Italian artisans based near Florence.
We especially love the playful tone of the collection’s pictures, a fictional Sabine Getty family where the blonde baby wears a choker as a crown, a made-up gentleman hangs an delicate earring from his lobe and Sabine herself poses with her creations. A dash of color to beat the February blues!
