PHOTOGRAPHY POWER COUPLE INEZ & VINOODH CELEBRATE THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL UNION WITH A SPECIAL COLLABORATION FOR TENTHOUSANDTHINGS


If you thought you had seen pretty much everything from Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, think again. This September marks the inseparable duo’s debut jewelry collection for TENTHOUSANDTHINGS. 

The idea stemmed from a philanthropic endeavor with the brand’s founders, David Rees and Ron Anderson, that took place last year. After shooting a portrait series for V81 entitled Let Love Adorn You, featuring luminaries Susan Sarandon, Liya Kebede, Olivier Theyskens, and other friends in one-of-a-kind pieces auctioned for charity, Vinoodh felt inspired to create a necklace on his own for Inez.

“We really loved it, and then we started thinking about all the possibilities,” says Inez of the initial design, a black oxidized silver necklace featuring intertwined replicas of their wedding rings and a star pendant. Next they created a series of 10 variants, and then an eleventh version incorporating different stones into the collection. Ultimately, the project evolved into a 200-piece range which will be sold at Barneys New York and Net-a-Porter.com. “For us, it comes from our togetherness and our son, Charles Star, who turns 10 this year. It’s about the special bond between people, either in their love life or their work,” says Inez.

To showcase their gems, the pair photographed groups who embody this connection, including Misshapes’ Greg Krelenstein, Leigh Lezark, and Geordon Nicol. “These pieces have a real sense of the artists who created them that I feel very connected to,” says Krelenstein. 

“They have a very intense working relationship and they symbolize a part of New York that I love,” says Inez of the trio, who will release their first compilation this fall. “It was so exciting to see how they felt in the jewelry and to be on the other side—we have never shot our own product before. Now we understand how the designers feel!”
