Before the soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, Afghanistan lay the heart of the Hippie Trail. Thousands of hippies came through Afghanistan, drawn by its reputation for mythic beauty, age-old craftsmanship, famous hospitality (and perhaps its native cannabis too…). Pichard’s joyous collection evokes the nostalgia of that time.
Amelie Pichard is one of France’s most exciting independent designs. She has collaborated with everyone from Pamela Anderson to Opening Ceremony. Pichard’s creative process revolves around playing with cliches. Her designs are unorthodox yet wearable, vintage but unmistakable urban.
All the pieces in this collection were handcrafted by jewellers in the old city of Kabul. One of these is Monawar Shah. Having trained first in Kabul, and then in India, Monawar has recently set up his own workshop on the site of an old silver bazaar in Kabul’s historic district of Murad Khani.
