Roselinde, on the creative process and her muses, following her collaboration with the FW20 fashion show Brown: The No Colour


Yolancris discussed creative process and sources of inspiration with Ros Jiménez, creative director of the jewelry and accessories brand from Tenerife Roselinde, following her second collaboration with the Firm. After her capsule collection for the FW19 fashion show All the springs of a winter, we talked about the new fashion show at the epicenter of fashion, the Hôtel Ritz Paris.

Yolancris – The FW20 Brown: The No Colour collection presents a symphony of shades of brown, from chestnut, intense coffee, ocher, beige, gold, mahogany or copper.

Ros Jiménez – For the FW20 collection I wanted to look for the contrast of colours with the earth tones of chosen by Yolanda Pérez, creative director of Yolancris, for Brown: The No Colour, as well as play with XL sizes and asymmetry. Asymmetric coordinated lines that align Yolancris’ and Roselinde’s universe.

It is not the first time that you collaborate with the Firm.

It’s a challenge, and personally it is very motivating. The first time Yolanda Pérez asked me for some proposals, I was not sure I would fit what she was looking for. To my surprise, I perfectly captured her idea and what she seeks to show in her exquisite garments. I think we share a somewhat groundbreaking aesthetic vision, highlighting the unique and unrepeatable style and essence of each woman. It is comforting to find someone who shares this vision and it is curious to see how we translate it into our designs.

When you have to create for Yolanda Pérez, you do not design your jewelry from a finished collection. On the contrary, both Yolancris and Roselinde’s collections, are created in parallel.

My jewelry draws on the guidelines and development of Yolanda Pérez’s collections. She tells me the concept and range of colours that will predominate, as well as the type of accessories she has in mind. From there I propose shapes and materials.

For Brown: The No Colour I wanted to use materials that transmitted sensuality such as feathers, and the femininity provided by pearls and mother of pearl, combined with raffia, a component present in the FW20 collection. All this within the framework of a handmade manufacturing system, consisting of threading each earring with rockery and pearls, practically sewing the components of each piece.

The value of craft and local production is also very present in Roselinde.

The production of Roselinde is handmade in our workshop in Tenerife betting on sustainability. Never two of our pieces are exactly the same. I myself design the prototypes assembling and disassembling the pieces until I hit the final one.

Sustainability, as well as the vision of femininity and subtlety of today’s woman of Yolancris and Roselinde, are in tune. Part of your imagery is in tune too, seeking for inspiration in the decade of the 60s.

The soundtrack of our designs is the chanson française of the 60s. In Roselinde’s universe there is some influence of the music and trends of this decade. On the other hand, the same way that Art Nouveau, landscape of Barcelona, ​​is a constant in Yolanda Pérez’s work, the climate and Canarian landscape are also a clear influence for me as a designer. The light and colours of our homeland is reflected in all our creations, it is part of the Firm’s DNA. All this combination of colour, shapes and materials fits Yolanda’s vision.
