Interview: Geometric Jewelry Designer Odélie Chan

This is an interview with up-and-coming jewelry brand designer Odélie Chan.

French-based designer Odélie Chan is a talented up-and coming artist creating both unique and short-run production jewelry that draws on colorful and bold patterns. You've gotta keep an eye on her constantly evolving work, which is delving into new realms of shapes, colors, geometry and gold. Her eccentric and unusual designs caught our eye and are clearly designed to be worn by the unique and one-of-a-kind queen. We had a little chat with Odélie below.


Poundo: Who is Odelie Chan?

Odélie: A supa handmade jewelry designer,living in Paris and doing her best to make her daily experience colorful.

P: What is your favorite animal print?

O: Probably the leopard print.

P: Can I call you "bubu"?

O: [Laughs] it sounds cute!

P: What is cool?

O: You, me,US!

P: Bubu, could you tell Prêt-à-Poundo a secret that all the fashion world doesn't know about you?

O: I've got 99 problems but creativity ain't one!

P: What are the jewelry trends for A/W 13?

O: I would say extravagant, oversized, imaginative, sophisticated and feminine — a combination of metals, leathers, crystals, and deep colors.

P: Which accessory, trend, print or outfit can you not stand at all?

O: I think it depends on how the elements are combined, i personally like to mix different kind of prints and oversized accessories.I must admit that i'm not really into the "black" theme — skulls and crosses — a little bit too grim for me.

P: If I say Prêt-À-Poundo, you say?

O: A pop of colors, a good way to stay informed about what's going on in the fashion industry.

P: Describe Odelie Chan in one word.

O: Awake.
