It’s not your usual combo, but when Tiffany & Co. teams up with contemporary artist Daniel Arsham and adds Pokémon to the mix, you know something extraordinary is on the horizon. Are you ready for the Tiffany & Arsham Studio & Pokémon Capsule Collection?
Design Beyond Screens
The marriage of anime’s striking visuals, fantastical storytelling, and distinctive aesthetics with the world of high-end fashion is not entirely new. Just as Gucci’s flora campaign, the dynamic crossover of Jujutsu Kaisen with Dolce & Gabbana, the enchanting collaboration of Sailor Moon with Jimmy Choo, and the fusion of Loewe’s creativity with Studio Ghibli’s ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ have demonstrated, anime is not merely confined to screens—it has gracefully stepped into the luxurious domain of fashion.
Designers worldwide are captivated by the boundless creativity embedded in anime, leading to a surge in anime-inspired designs. Whether it’s the sophisticated elegance of Gucci or the avant-garde expression of Loewe, anime’s imprint on fashion is undeniable.
As the Tiffany & Co. Pokémon Capsule Collection prepares to make its mark, it joins the ranks of those who recognize the transformative power of anime in the luxury fashion-verse. This collaboration prompts us to question not only the boundaries of style but also the evolving dynamics between traditional luxury and the vibrant, animated narratives that captivate audiences worldwide.
Arsham’s Artistry Meets Pokémon Magic
So, do you consider yourself someone who appreciates the finer things in life? Meet Daniel Arsham, the mastermind behind the avant-garde “Future Relics” aesthetic. He’s the guy who takes everyday objects and transforms them into archaeological wonders from a fantasy future. Think Pokémon artefacts with a touch of timeless elegance, all inspired by Arsham’s exhibition in Japan, “A Ripple in Time.” It’s a creative narrative that’s about to level up your style game.
But hold up, it’s not just about the art; it’s about the vibe. Arsham spills the beans, “With my latest project with Tiffany, we’ve recontextualized Pokémon—a nod to my 2022 A Ripple in Time project in Tokyo—to orchestrate a new narrative. With Pokémon and Tiffany, itself, there’s a sense of cultural permanence about each.” Translation: It’s not just a collection; it’s a statement.
Elegance Meets Collectability
Now, let’s talk about the stars of the show—the Pokémon lineup. Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Jigglypuff, Cubone, and Mew are not just creatures; they’re elevated to wearable art. Picture an oxidized sterling silver pendant with diamond accents, each showcasing your favourite Pokémon. And for the Pikachu fans rocking that iconic yellow vibe, there are 18K yellow gold necklaces with diamond accents in two sizes. It’s not just jewellery but a collector’s dream.
A Collector’s Delight
You know it’s legit when the packaging is as enchanting as the pieces. The oxidized sterling silver designs come in the iconic Tiffany & Arsham Studio & Pokémon Blue Box. And for the gold Pikachu pendants? They get their special home in a Tiffany Blue® Poké Ball. It’s not just about wearing it; it’s also about the whole experience.
