Belgian jewelry brand Wouters & Hendrix, created in 1984, invites Stephanie D’heygere to design a seven-piece-capsule collection centered entirely around the Wouters & Hendrix’s iconic Chapters ring.
D’heygere’s ingenious approach—putting the fun in function—to designing jewelry is applied to Chapters. Through D’heygere’s twisted vision the collaboration results in a seven silver earrings and ear cuffs; some of which effortlessly morph into a bracelet, a ring, or a necklace. All the pieces are crafted in Wouters & Hendrix’s atelier in Antwerp.
For their campaign, the two Belgian entities chose six iconic and inspirational Belgians from six different fields of expertise to be captured by photographer, Anne-Sophie Guillet:
Inge Grognard, make-up artist heavily involved in and admired by the Antwerp 6, wears the Chain Pendant/Hoop as a hoop.
Glenn Martens, creative director of Y/Project and Diesel, wears the Chain Ear Cuff, the Side Chain Hoops and the Chain Pendant/Hoop (worn as a necklace).
Elodie Ouédraogo, an Olympic gold-medal-winning sprinter, wears the Triple Chain Hoops and the Chain Ear Cuff.
Victor Polster, dancer and actor who stars as the trans ballerina in the 2018 movie Girl, wears the Chain Ear Cuff and the Twisted Chain Hoops.
Els Pynoo, the singer of Vive la Fête, sports the Chain Ring/Ear Cuff (worn as an ear cuff) as well as the Chain Bangles/Hoops (worn as a hoop) and the Chain Ear Cuff.
Charline Tyberghein, a celebrated surrealist painter, wears the Triple Chain Hoops, the Chain Pendant/Hoop (worn as hoop) as well as the Chain Ring/Ear Cuff (worn as an ear cuff).
