Renowned  South African jewellery designer Kevin Friedman last night brought his A/W collection to the Ubuntu International project show at London Fashion Week. Frankli Wild jewellery depicts a lifelong fascination with the distinctive arts and crafts of South Africa which has proven invaluable as an inspiration for his work. Designer Kevin Friedman has also been involved in meaningful community development projects with local crafters.

 

Adding a sense of adventure to entertaining with an assortment of animal barware. Their fusion of African art and European crystal creats a stir in the cocktail circuit. With his meticulous attention to detail, designer Kevin Friedman  created pieces that are sure to become family heirlooms.

 

Frankli Wild’s jewelry reflected bright South African culture through its use of coloured beads in eye-catching oranges, reds and turquoises. The collection featured large oversized statement pieces. Traditional African beads were combined with shimmering coloured jewels and silver chains to make individual yet wearable pieces that were striking and bold.
