Tiffany’s prospective bankruptcy – if LVHM pulls out of deal – should fill contemporary jewellery artists/designers’ hearts with fright and angst.
The questions is_ CAN they evaluate, what this development mean in the frame of a highly volatile and covid-unsafe luxury market? This is the reason we publish SM*CK Magazine: Not to fill pages with wishful thinking, but to help designers understand what a market is and how it works. Our next issue focuses on Schmuck 2021, and includes features by jewellery VIPS and critics that will bombshell assumptions of “business as usual”.
We also plan a workshop on basic economics, politics and communication in early 2021, for not just good work will be needed to navigate the dark waters of the new year.
