Jianhui: Nature’s Child

We were very pleased to hear from our friends at, especially considering they had such kind words for us!

““The most amazing design” said Laura McReddie, editor of Retail Jeweller, “the most beautiful eco design” exclaimed Italian fashion icon Elio Fiorucci of Jianhui’s work. This is just some of the justifiable praise the blue-sky-thinking designer Jianhui has received for his work which is inspired by the nature that captured his childhood imagination.”

ELLE Canada

Noreen Flanagan Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Canada has recently blogged about her new love – us!

“I’m taken by one particular piece—one that is now delicately wrapped around my neck. It’s a crocheted crystal collar from Chinese-born, London-based designer Jianhui (pronounced Janway). I love its slender threads wrapped finely and adorned with glittering crystals.”

The first lady of fashion discovered Jianhui London at the Canadian boutique, Rue Pigalle, which she describes as her “favourite accessories shop in Toronto – maybe her favourite anywhere”. We might just agree!

Passionate about pashmina

The Next PasminaBuilding on the popularity of the Next Pashmina – Wood, a bold necklace design made from hundreds of tiny ultra-light and heat retaining recycled wood blocks, Jianhui London is once again pushing the boundaries of pashmina design.

The new Next Pashmina – Chain, a luxuriously silky thread wrapped necklace, will launch exclusively at International Jewellery London 2012, representing the latest incarnation of a constantly evolving collection.

Jianhui London’s passion for pashmina is certainly infectious. Next Pashmina designs have already caught the eyes of fashion stockists the world over, including buyers from the V&A Museum, London and MoMA NYC and Japan.

Jianhui London can be found at International Jewellery London 2012, Earl’s Court, London at Stand D1 between 2nd – 5th September 2012.


Première Classe

Jianhui at the Trend ForumJust a quick note to let you know about Jianhui London’s exciting weekend trip to Paris. Our trademark collection, ‘The Next Pashmina‘ caused more than a stir, appearing in the inspiring trend forum, the glamorous Who’s Next Catwalk and once again, gracing the front cover of the prestigious Fashion Daily News.

The event also sparked a deluge of orders from around the world including countries as far away as America and Australia, showing that good fashion will always buck the poor economic climate.

Jubilee Celebrations – In Style

Jianhui London Jubilee Celebrations - MilanJubilee celebrations aren’t just limited to the UK this summer.

In tribute to the Queen, 13 designers were selected by the British Consulate General and the UK Trade & Investment to honour Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee – Italian style.

The Next Pashmina by Jianhui London will sit next to works from the very best of British talent including the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Rachel Galley, Alex Monroe and Jenny Packham in an eclectic display of jewellery (fit for a queen!) in iconic Italian design store, La Rinascente until 24 June.

At the launch, The Next Pashmina was spotted among a throng of camera crews and journalists by none other than Vogue Italia editor, Franca Sozzani, who described the collection as “the most exciting design” she’d seen in a long time. Now all we need is a Royal Warrant by order of the Queen!

Celebratory Pimms anyone?

British Designer Leads International Fashion Trend – Introducing Rope.

Jianhui London’s rope collection has become the talk of the International fashion world.

After seeing huge success with The Next Pashmina-Wood, British designer Jianhui London once again leads a new fashion trend with the introduction of his rope collection.

He has just returned from Premiere Classe, one of the World’s most famous fashion shows – where his new collection was the talk of the entire event.

The buzz culminated in Jianhui stealing the covers of both Fashion Daily and Trend Forecast magazine.

The Next Pashmina - RopeThe fashion and design guru explains more:

“I always knew that the world would be excited by rope. I took my collections to the show with an eager spirit and was amazed at the results. It turns out that rope is set to become the next fashion trend, with me leading it!” he says.

Jianhui has two collections of rope available. The first is called ‘Rope’ – a cotton rope which looks particularly good on Men. The second, known as ‘The Next Pashmina-Yangmao’ (Yangmao being the Chinese word for sheep fur) is 99% wool and 1% silk. This can be wrapped as a scarf or used in a myriad of other creative ways.

Colours are important to Jianhui. Hence, each collection is available to suit all visual tastes. The Yangmao range comes in a choice of black, chocolate, purple, navy, grey. Rope is available in green, black or grey.

As Jianhui attests, the craftsmanship is world-class:

“Each woolen tube is hand finished and environmentally friendly dyed with the finest of care. We’re following the same practices as we did with our previous collection, The Next Pashmina-Wood, which also took the fashion world by storm” he adds.

The previous collection certainly was popular. Made from tiny pieces of wood yard’s surplus materials, The Next Pashmina is already gracing some of the world’s most elegant shoulders.
