Powder Hill x The Gentleman Blogger
The Gentleman Blogger, AKA Matthew Zorpas, has joined forces with established accessory brand Powder Hill to create and debut a range of men’s jewellery.
Zorpas, who was voted one of GQ‘s ‘Top 5 New Fashion Icons Of 2013’ and Esquire‘s second ‘Best Dressed Man’, will work alongside Nicola Pulvertaft, who has previously overseen collaborations with the likes of Holland & Holland and Harvey Nichols.
The new Animal Instincts line consists of an array of sterling silver and 18 carat gold plated lapel pins and tie clips. Each features one of four animal heads: lion, fox, hare or monkey (running alongside the similarly themed women’s collection). The styles are encrusted with green diamonds, garnet, and green and pink tourmalines.
Art school graduate Pulvertaft established the brand last year, taking inspiration from signature themes of wildlife, Victorian adornment and country field sports. The result is quirky with an English edge.
The Animal Instincts collection is available online at PowderHill.com, retailing between £150 and £300, with personalised versions available on request.
