It's rare that we see a garment again once it's been shipped halfway around the world, but Australian jewelry designer Linda van Niekerk had ordered her Lithos Jacket to wear to her opening at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, and after the exhibition she dropped by the studio to see (and try on) more of the collection in person. Her gorgeous designs in natural wood and metals blend the geometric with the organic, and she'd chosen the collarless leather jacket for its simplicity, to complement her statement jewelry. Next we'll be furnishing her with an Ascent Top and custom Tectonic Dress… can't wait to see how she pulls those together! For now, leaving you with Linda's stunning, sculptural Forest Shadow ring:
