Qeelin has launched a new series, the Wulu Legend, with designs that drew inspiration from the Silk Road. Wulu’s iconic aesthetics pay tribute to the origins of the brand, and serves to tie ancient oriental wisdom with modern aesthetics.
The progress of aesthetic interpretation often derives from the original concept and the fusion of the new ideas. In today’s highly globalized world, Chinese and Western cultures are complimenting each other in its own unique and distinctive ways at the same time. Dennis Chan, Founder and Creative Director of Qeelin, once again set off from Dunhuang, the city that inspired the brand’s conception.
There he journeyed on the oldest section of the legendary Silk Road, in order to experience the interaction and integration of Chinese and Western civilizations over the past millennia. With renewed inspiration, he incorporated the exotic features of the Silk Road to the Qeelin’s classic Wulu series, and provided a new self-expression in the multi-cultural landscape from the gourd designs Qeelin is famed for; and with that, the Wulu Legend series was born.
The Wulu Legend series is divided into designs for daily use and special occasions. For daily use – Commercial Set – the pieces are inlaid with 18K rose gold and diamonds with rubies as embellishments; the ones for special occasions – Couture Set–it features classic Wulu silhouettes to symbolize happiness and longevity. The ruby in the centre forms a pattern that depicts a rich Western Silk Road style. The surface of the jewellery is all inlaid with diamonds, shining brightly to showcase a sense of modernity and prosperity. It is also a new way for millennial to express themselves.
