Toronto, ON (May 27, 2016) — Sophie Grégoire Trudeau once again impressed fashion followers with her all Canadian-designed looks while accompanying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for their visit this week to Japan for the G7 summit. Canadian jewellery designer Dean Davidson, recently nominated for the CAFA nominee for Accessory Designer of the Year, created a custom pair of earrings for Grégoire Trudeau inspired by a traditional Japanese hand-fan which she wore on Thursday.
The earrings adorned with specially cut green onyx stones were designed after Davidson was approached by Grégoire Trudeau’s stylist and friend Jessica Mulroney about collaborating on creating a custom pair of earrings specifically for the Japan visit.
Davidson explained it was important to carefully consider Japanese culture when designing the earrings: “Sophie has incredible style and is thoughtful in her fashion choices so we made an effort to honour Japanese culture in a tasteful and elegant way. This design is a beautiful nod to the iconic Japanese symbol while remaining contemporary, current and true to the Dean Davidson aesthetic.”
Grégoire Trudeau continues to bring Canadian fashion to the international stage and Davidson says it’s a pleasure to see his work showcased: “Sophie’s influence is growing quickly and it’s always an honour to have my designs worn by someone so kind and graceful.”
Since launching his eponymous jewellery line in 2007, Davidson has become an internationally celebrated designer with his creations consistently gracing the pages of renowned publications like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and InStyle. Based in Toronto, in addition to now being available on Gilt.com, his unique designs can be found in over 250 select boutiques across the globe and seen on such high-profile clients such as Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Olivia Wilde and Demi Lovato. Davison was recently nominated for Accessory Designer of the Year at the 2016 CAFA Awards.
Every piece of Davidson’s jewellery holds its own story, designed to make the wearer feel confident and unique. Whether it’s masculine shapes paired with feminine textures, or architectural lines and contrasting fluid gemstones, the common thread found throughout Davidson’s creations embody an unexpected combination of minimalism with maximum impact.
All of Davidson’s pieces are cast out of high quality brass and then plated in 22KT gold, rhodium or 22KT rose gold. His unique and signature brushed finish gives a timeless and luxurious quality to his designs. Every season he chooses a different selection of gemstones to further enhance the collection. The gemstones are all custom cut and polished in India and complement his forward-thinking aesthetic. Davidson’s clean and tasteful designs are chic and versatile, geometric and fluid, and most importantly, current and enduring.
