We sat down with our 'Chief', designer and owner of The Boyscouts Zelda Beauchampet, to talk about her latest collaboration with Ceizer. Together they came up with the Limited Edition The Boyscouts x Ceizer collection, which will launch this Friday the 15th of June, online & in-store. Zelda: "It can be really well behaved, for example ‘OUI, PERFECT and PEACE’, or more daring: ‘SEX, YOU&ME and LOVE’. Up to you to play with..."
How did the collaboration between you and Ceizer come about?
"I was really moved by Ceizer’s work after I discovered his art. I got inspired and excited about everything I saw that I immediately started to think about a possible collab. And so it began…"
What attracts you to his work?
"I really like his choice of words and how he manages to turn them into iconic, playful images."
How does it complement the collection?
"Ceizer’s artwork is a perfect addition to our jewelry, especially because our latest collection FOLD / UNFOLD is blank, sleek and minimal. It’s really fun when you both create a whole new design which you couldn’t think of by yourself."
How was the design process?
"When I spoke to Ceizer in Paris, I already had a bigger picture in my mind. Ceizer liked my ideas and started to think of which designs he would like to use. He gave us so many options and stories that we both agreed on making three necklaces with not one but two engravements. One on the front and one on the back."
What is the collection all about?
"This limited edition revolves around the theme of love at first sight. Each artwork/necklace tells its own little story. With the necklaces you’re able to create your story by wearing them together or separately. It can be really well behaved, for example ‘OUI, PERFECT and PEACE’, or more daring: ‘SEX, YOU&ME and LOVE’. But there are more twists to it. LOVE can also be EVOL ;-)."
Which necklace is your favorite?
"First, I liked the OUI/SEX piece the most. But now the EVOL/PEACE design is my fave. It’s such an iconic work by Ceizer, which makes it a statement piece for me."
You’ve collaborated with other creatives like LOUIS REITH. What makes it so interesting to collaborate with other artists?
"I personally love to collaborate with other disciplines. We make jewelry, but it’s cool when someone else looks at our work from a whole different perspective. This way I try to give our products a new dimension. It also energizes and inspires me for new projects and collections."
Speaking of new projects, what else can we expect in the near future?
"Next to our upcoming AW18 collection, I can’t give any details yet. But there are definitely cool things going on… keep an eye out!"
