New ways of wearing a brooch

Positioned in unusual places, the brooches from Hermès and Jieun Kim corkscrew, gather and smock the fabric in a somewhat poetic way. By way of anecdote, Jieun Kim produced the small golden metal hand in 2015 for the “Unpinned” exhibition at the Foundling Museum, a former orphanage in London. Infinitely touching, “it represents the hand of a child desperately clinging to her mother’s clothes,” says the young designer.
