French jewelry designers Matthieu Mouton and Nicolas Collet aim to tell stories with MoutonCollet, their eponymous line of necklaces, lariats, cufflinks and bracelets.

Their new collection, Bords de Mer, is inspired by fantasies of the sea. “The story results from an imaginary adventure which we had during a walk on the beaches of the North Sea,” state the designers. “Totally alone, a gray sky, a thick fog and intense wind, we were caught dreaming about cavalry.” Mouton and Collet feel that these types of stories unleash their inner creativity as designers. “We are anarchists of the imagination. The creativity, the emotion, and [the] violence [of stories] is a way of asserting a freedom of expression total and inescapable.”

The resulting pieces capture the essence of these imagined adventures by using naval motifs and rugged materials, such as brushed silver, gourmette chain and black and blue enamels.
