What are you inspired by?
Inspired by everything from film to art, literature to architecture, product and furniture, world travel and culture, people that I meet day to day – the list is so endless. Of course most importantly – MUSIC.
Recent projects have included an installation at Dover Street Market, an exclusive erotic collection for the luxury sex emporium Coco de Mer, a show-stopping catwalk piece for Swarovski Runway Rocks and a limited edition shoe heel for iconic London shoe designer Georgina Goodman.
What are your design signatures?
Hannah Martin creates luxurious and decadent collections described as ‘jewellery for men, that girlfriends will steal’. Sharp bold shapes, specific combinations of precious stones and metal, overall I would say sculptural elegance and masculine detail.
How would you describe the Hannah Martin man/woman?
Hot. Of course. We have clients from so many walks of life – so it’s hard to be specific. I would say however that our client is someone who appreciates good design, high level of craftsmanship, British manufacture, and an item that has a story.
