Loquet launches line inspired by Charlie Mackesy
Loquet London has announced the launch of its ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’ collection inspired by the illustrations of Charlie Mackesy.
Loquet has designed a collection of charms, each of which depict Mackesy’s much-loved characters of the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse, an animated short film.
The collection will be sold exclusively from the Loquet London website and Loquet’s Elizabeth Street boutique.
The charms are crafted from solid gold with enamel detailing. They will retail for £260.
Sheherazade Goldsmith, founder of Loquet London, said: “Charlie’s film, much like his books, is a beautiful work of art, a celebration of animation in its purest form, but more importantly it’s a story about what matters most to all of us. We could not be more thrilled to have created miniature charms of his protagonists, each one embedded with the language of his wonderful books of hope, love, kindness and friendship.
“A collaboration which brings together the world of art and jewellery with meaning. The collection consists of 9 charms made in 18kt gold, crafted with a variety of fine techniques using enamel, a mix of coloured golds and precious stones.”
The film that inspired this collection has been nominated for best animated short film at the Oscars.
