Tell us something about you and how did the Sak Label project come about.
Sak Label consists of me Klara Hedener, a Swede resident in Barcelona, and Alejandra Solar a Mexican designer currently living in Luxembourg. We met while studying Artistic Jewellery at Escola Massana and during the long hours spent in the workshop while finishing our final projects, the idea for the project came to life.
Can you describe your latest collection?
For our first collection “Chains & Pearls” we found inspiration in essential jewellery pieces. We reinterpreted and transformed heritage motifs such as pearl necklaces, chain colliers and baroque pendants into 2 dimensional shapes. Our intention is to create jewelry that play with tradition and modernity.
Which materials do you use and like to experiment with?
We have so far used brass and steel and worked with different kinds of finishes in gold or silver plating and colored lacquer. I love natural materials such as leather, stone and wood and would definitely consider mixing materials in coming collections.
Who wears Sak Label? And how would you like to see your jewelry worn?
I think our client is looking for something in between classical jewelry and accessories. We put a great deal of work into every piece and the quality of the finish. Our philosophy is to create unique jewelry with playful and modern aesthetics, jewelry to be worn everyday and for special occasions.
What’s your most treasured piece of jewelry that you own? And the favourite piece in your closet?
Most treasured piece of jewelry is without a doubt a 19th century turquoise pendant that I inherited from my grandmother. It opens up and on the inside are pictures of my great grandfather and grandmother. Favorite pieces in my closet changes quite often, but for the moment I have to say that I’m still in love with an oversize croco & leather clutch that I found at a thrift shop in NY.
What do you think style is about? And how would you describe your personal style?
I think style is all about personality. Finding inspiration in fashion and making you own personal interpretation. My style is a mix of a few designer items, second hand finds, high street bargains and gems found in my mothers closet.
If style was a place it would be…
I will have to be predictable: Paris
and if it was a person? Who’s your style icon?
I can’t say that I have any celeb style icon. I’ve had a few friends who were blessed with the talent of always looking effortlessly fabulous whatever they put on. I guess those talented few are my icons.
What’s in your ipod?
My ipod broke but on it was a sad collection of old house to keep me company while I go running, and a little bit of everything from Lykke Li to Caribou and The XX.
You are from Sweden, you live in Barcellona and when I met you you were In NY. Do you travel a lot? How do you like that?
I love traveling and grab every chance I get to do so. My boyfriend travels a lot in his work and whenever I get the chance, I go with him. We both like the idea of spending a few months every year in a new city. Changing your routine and getting some new inspiration can only be a positive thing.
And finally, if I came to Barcellona where should I go shopping? And what is an absolute must-do there?
For good shopping in Barcelona I would have to say Snö, a swedish design shop turned web shop, that also sell Sak Label. Other than that there is Paco Rueda in C/ Jaume I, and Doshaburi close by in C/ Lledó. In general Barcelona is not amazing when it comes to shopping. What is great about Barcelona is its charm and climate. Having a “café con leche” in a terrace in La Ribera in the middle of winter or going for a morning run as the sun rises over La Barceloneta.
