About the Anton Heunis brand
Anton Heunis, jewellery brand, was found in 2004 in Spain. Within just five years it has managed to enter international market and now it is presented in the most exclusive department stores around the world. Every piece of jewellery is handmade in the workshop in the centre of Madrid, where the designer creates and develops his collections. Each piece is not like one another that gives unique character to each product. He refers to the jewellery as "something personal, something intimate and should b e made with love". Monnier Frères is proud to present this unique handmade jewellery brand.
With Bachelor degree in Fine Arts from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, Anton Heunis also gained a Master degree under the supervision of the artist and professor Otto Künzli. However, his inspiration started long time before with his grandmother, who was always covered with beautiful jewellery and enameled hair brushes. Anton Heunis works a lot with semi-precious stones such as Lapis, Agatha, Onyx or Swarovski crystals. Some of the pieces are then gilded with 22 carat gold. “Modern-vintage” has become the trademark look of the Anton Heunis brand that is recognizable by many famous magazines.
Spring Summer 2014 Collection
This season, Anton Heunis is inspired by different eras and places to create accessory lines that each has a strong personality. The "Tsarina" line is inspired from the Russian Empire, and resplendent with its precious jewelry in Swarovski crystals and its golden hues. Anton Heunis then makes a leap in time with his "Gotham City" collection that has a graphic and urban spirit, dark colors and vintage crystals. He then moves on to more exotic destinations, with a first stop in Hong Kong; Anton Heunis is inspired by the movie "In the Mood for Love" for his eponymous line. The cinematic atmosphere of the time period and the colors of this classic movie are revealed through the jewels. Finally, he explores the textures and colors of the Sahara Desert universe to design the "Sahara" line, which is a unique blend of vintage gold, bright colors, quartz and crystals.
