His work is a statement in black, inspired by Berlin’s one of a kind nightlife culture.

You have been working on different projects from print designs, accessories and garments, using original materials and technologies. Do you consider that it’s important to be a versatile artist?
I find it interesting to work in different mediums and to reinvent my ideas in different materials. I also prefer to think of myself as a product designer who loves fashion!

image

Sustainability is a key feature of your work. At a citizen scale, how could we move toward an efficient sustainable development in your opinion?
Oh, I think about it every second day! It does sound like the basics but recycling should really be a part of everyones daily habits but it ain’t so. Also avoiding plastic bags is such an easy thing to do if one think that it brings benefit.
As a designer I like the idea that I produce as much as people buy from me. I don’t create large amounts of excessive trash to this world and I do take responsibility for it. We hardly create any left overs that can’t be recycled.

image

What’s your biggest influence in your artwork?
Materials and people. My brother inspired me to start making jewellery with his knowledge about aircraft engineering, my dad inspired me to incorporate wood to my collections and my friends inspire me to create things for their niche.

June 13 2017


MEET THE DESIGNER BIJOUX INDISCRETS

Please introduce yourself and your brand!

I am Elsa Viegas, the designer and co-founder of Bijoux Indiscrets.

Bijoux Indiscrets is a trailblazing company in the market of erotic chic products. From the time it was founded in 2006, in Barcelona, the brand has achieved position as a European and worldwide referent in the sector; and it’s currently present in over 40 countries all over the world.

What is the most important consideration when designing a new collection?

From our products, to events, to side-projects, our whole brand is centred around celebrating women and female sexuality. Throughout history, female pleasure has been treated almost as if it doesn’t exist. Women have been denied the right to feel pleasure on our own terms, yet our bodies are designed for it. We want to reclaim our power!

Being a designer and a woman in a woman-founded company gives me a very feminine approach to the development of new collections, and when I design new pieces I’m not only doing it as a designer but also as a critic and user.

image

Your collections convey a sensual feel, seduction, and exude confidence. Who is your muse and ideal woman you design for?

I guess there’s nothing more powerful than a sexy woman, because it is not about how you look but how you feel. Self confidence. Sense of humor. Elegance. Intelligence.

There are so many women I look up to and all for different reasons: Monica Bellucci, Emma Watson, Madonna, Serena Williams…

I love powerful women.

image
image

What dreams and fantasies would you like to fulfil?

I would love to have our products featured on the cover of Vogue, worn by one of these powerful women!

I would also like to see a day when women and men, irrespective of gender, are treated as equals, in all aspects of life (career opportunities, education, wages, sexuality, etc…).

image
image

Can you tell us about any exciting plans for the year ahead?

I love what I do. I love being a designer. And right now my plans are to keep designing accessories full of sensuality that empower women and break established prejudices and taboos, questioning social roles and rules!
