Behind the scenes with Pluma

We were very pleased to have Pluma accessories to shoot on this year's World Swimsuit trip to the Maldives. Brendan Cannon is the Creative Director of Pluma, a collection of chic and elegant accessories produced in Italy by some of the premier luxury artisans in the world.

“Before meeting with the manufacturers to start the design process, I explored Italy to visually ‘inhale’ the balance of color and scale, from the natural landscape to the architecture to even local street style. Italy has long been the birthplace of the most luxurious fashion brands and trends, so I wanted to pay homage to that,” Cannon’s designs reflect the multi-faceted lives and sophistication of women who covet and wear luxury accessories. The precise combinations of luxurious elements like brass with molded resin, high-grade leather, enamel, high-quality plastics and nautical rope gives an elegant sensuality, allowing the jewelry to become a wardrobe staple.

Pluma debuted as a capsule collection that was shown alongside designer Jason Wu’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The ‘Oro’ suite, collaboration between Cannon and Wu, featured the brand’s signature gold links, brass, black enamel and molded resin. Pluma officially launched with a full collection for the Spring 2014 season. Pluma has attracted the attention of celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Kate Beckinsale, Lily Collins, Jessica Paré and Julianne Hough, among others.
