When exploring the colourful and ancient Medina of Marrakech, you can see why Talitha Getty, Yves Saint Laurent and other fabulous characters flocked here in the 60s and 70s. Around every corner is a new delight for the senses, intricate architecture, hidden riads and a feeling of continuity of history.
This collection is named after Sirocco, which comes from the warm, dry wind that travels up from Africa and through the Sahara desert. The sirocco winds could be felt while shooting and reflected the idea of freedom, which is a core value at Zoe & Morgan.
The design of this collection focuses on a mix of clean cut geometric textures, graphic lines and symbolic looking shapes, that can be large in size yet remain light and easy to wear.
We have used some of our favourite stones like Chrome Diopside – a beautiful bright green stone that captures an emerald like feel, and Brown Zircon which we love, as it’s the oldest material dated from this planet. In the Middle Ages, this gemstone was believed to help the wearer with sleep, bring riches, honor, and wisdom.
The pieces of this collection were designed to be worn together, or layered with your other treasured Zoe & Morgan jewels.
Morgan travelled across Morocco with a small team to shoot Sirocco, “It was a delight to work with our lovely model and friend Melody Marsh, alongside our long time collaborator Philly Piggot, who styled the shoot. We used all vintage clothing from the 70s, and it was a fun adventure to travel around together to capture some beautiful images”.
