We Talk All Things Inspiration with Adeline Cacheux

WINTER 2017

Adeline Cacheux keeps art close to her heart. It was Art History that she decided to study when entering the university and it is in art galleries like Marian Goodman and Emmanuel Perrotin where she worked afterwards. However, Adeline, as a sensitive soul, has so much in her life that inspired her that creating something as beautiful as jewellery was a logical step. Every little detail from her everyday life can result in a magical piece for her new collection. We talk all things inspiration with Adeline Cacheux.

A silhouette, an actress, a ready-to-wear collection, a detail on a piece of furniture… Any details that have something to do with shape.

The creative process either starts with a client suggestion of what she would want to have or just the mood I am in. Most of the time, I have a rough idea of the shape I want, an atmosphere… but I hardly draw a collection, it comes with working with the metal directly.

I do not have a specific movement that inspires me. I can love a painting from Douanier Rousseau and love the atmosphere from Rothko’s artwork, then be inspired by the abstractness of a work by Judd.

I am at the moment more into old blues like BB King but I love listening to this track “Doing It to Death” by The Kills, there is something animal yet elegant with this song!

It all started with signet rings I wanted to make and then the collection went on to evolving around the oval shape.

I never had any icons. I just admire women that are independent. In jewellery, I love the work of Suzanne Belperron, for example. I look up to strong female writers or artists.
