Don’t forget:
Lord Coconut’s inaugural exhibition titled APPARENT MOTION will be held as part of Look.Stop.Shop in the State of Design Festival 2011

Pop into the store between 21st and 31st July and see the exhibition of experimental jewellery by leading Melbourne jewellers and designers at Lord Coconut – Melbourne’s newest jewellery retail store and gallery space for men.

Local jewellers and designers have been challenged to create jewellery pieces for men which explore the concept of ‘kinetic movement’. In response to this ‘kinetic movement’ the jewellers/designers were asked to address: Can kinetic jewellery be designed for men? How will men wear this jewellery? Will men wear the jewellery? How far can jewellers push what is acceptable for men?
