STEPHEN WEBSTER SPRING 2020 VERTIGO COLLECTION FILM
The collection plays with extreme perspective, twisting reality and shaping the illusion of depth.

The Stephen Webster Spring 2020 Vertigo collection features strong angular lines incorporating materials such as enamel, titanium and gold, challenging the concept of altered perspective.
“Whilst planning our Spring Summer 2020 Campaign, I had a clear image of Patti Smith on the cover of Horses. Inspired by the artist, and what that picture captured at the time and continues to do to this day; uncluttered rock ‘n’ roll, a rebel who stood for something. The subsequent campaign, shot on the last day before lockdown, manages to capture some of the current climate where the noise has stopped and the creativity will once again begin,” said Stephen Webster.
The collection is inspired by radical, modern architecture and the visual iconography related to the Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name. The jewelry range is graphic and combines color with strong angular lines.
Progressive and eye-catching, the Stephen Webster Spring 2020 Vertigo collection echoes the futuristic chevron-shaped façade of the New Horizons building in Melbourne, Australia, which inspired some of these designs. Vertigo pushes boundaries and is as daring with materials as it is with shape. Included are titanium, 18ct white and yellow gold, round and baguette-cut diamonds as well as dark blue and Arctic white enamel.
