Marylène Madou x Jochen Leën 28 January 2019 – Posted in: Stories
Jochen Leën is a rare gem collector, member of the Diamond Bourse Antwerp and a very impressive jewellery designer. Each one of his objects is dedicated to modern craftsmanship and outstanding quality. A combination between top-grade gemstones and wearable contemporary art. When meeting with Marylène, the idea for an exclusive foulard, which to her is still historically the embodiment of luxury in a textile object, came to life. Inspired by the breathtaking colors in each gem stone, Marylène digitally drew each object, combining these drawings of jewellery with textures from raw stones and marble surfaces, which Jochen often uses to present his objects. The result is a limited edition series of three silk scarves.
