These were also important questions posed at Wempe at the beginning of the creation phase of Cosmora BY KIM, and they accompanied the production of a haute joaillerie ring collection that was a complex undertaking even by the highest Wempe standards. Thirteen fascinating cities and regions provided the inspiration for the unique project Cosmora BY KIM.
It’s been quite a while since BY KIM advanced to the status of an independent brand. The jewellery from the diverse BY KIM lines combines the artistic power of Creative Director Catherine Plouchard with the farsighted vision of Kim-Eva Wempe and the extraordinary skills of the expert goldsmiths in the Wempe studio. And in the gallery of unique pieces that is Cosmora BY KIM, all of these participants have once again outdone themselves.
Every one of the world’s metropolitan regions has its own special appeal. In addition to the architecture, climate, fl ora and fauna, there are sensual attractions and subtle nuances such as culinary specialities, the city’s tempo and mentality — or simply a certain something in the air that captivates the visitor from the very first moment and sometimes doesn’t let go for a lifetime. This is what inspired Catherine Plouchard to go on an artistic journey around the globe.
