Brokenfab & Fabienne Morel's
Disco Band Necklace
Are you with the band? Wear this beaded flat "rope" as a necklace, around your forehead or wrap it around a wrist.
Designer Fabienne Morel let the beat guide her for the Disco Beading Collection of her handcrafted line Brokenfab: the soulful dance-inducing music, style and fashion of the underground in her native Switzerland, in London and where ever like-minded individuals get up and go to the sounds of Future Soul, Synth, Broken Beats, Detroit Techno, Electro and more.
Part of the appeal in Fabienne's work is the apparent contradictions: the hand-beaded geometry; the ancient crafting of beading among African and Native American cultures and the contemporary interpretation by a Swiss electro music enthusiast. When she’s not dashing to her yoga class (Rose always seems to be catching her coming or going), Fabienne follows the muse as flavored by a love of Frank Stella and Ettore Sottsass, disco and electro music. Using Rocailles seed beads, Fabienne painstakingly crafts each piece by hand, her way of thumbing her nose at market methods of production.
