Net-a-Porter adds a new jewellery brand to join The Vanguard
It's been five months since Net-a-Porter announced the three latest brands to join The Vanguard, the globally renowned program for emerging designer talent. Now, the luxury e-commerce platform revealed that afrofuturist luxury brand KHIRY FINE is the latest brand to join the platform.
Founded in 2016 by Jameel Mohammed, KHIRY FINE has since been worn by the likes of Michelle Obama, Serena Williams, Janelle Monae, Yara Shahidi and Solange Knowles, and every piece makes a pointed statement about the values of African/American life and culture.
Marking the brand's first collection within the fine jewellery space, KHIRY FINE is available on Net-a-Porter following a mentorship with fellow fine jewellery brand Mateo and the sponsorship from three suppliers, all of whom provided materials to realise the KHIRY FINE collection: Diamonds from Hearts On Fire, Emeralds from Muzo Emerald Colombia and Gold, from a single mine origin source, from The Betts Group.
"Doing this project is indicative that the industry and the world is changing," says Jameel Mohammed, KHIRY FINE Founder and Creative Director. "The other cause for hope, is not merely in the reception we receive as designers but the strength we build together. Mateo has helped to move my business forward by years. This is a moment of empowerment, it's a collaboration of black and non-black creators, that can and will be the site of change. This is where it starts."
KHIRY FINE will exclusively make its debut on Net-a-Porter with a collection comprised of a range of coveted jewellery pieces — a mixture of eclectic styles and sculptural silhouettes, complete in 18-Karat Gold and a variety of precious stones.
