  • Odalisque Magazine Interviews Sophie Bille Brahe - Jardin de Rêve collection

    Written by Jahwanna Berglund

    Fine jewellery designer, Sophie Bille Brahe announces the exclusive Jardin de Rêve Collection, created for global fashion luxury destination Mytheresa. The collection is launched in October 2022 on www.mytheresa.com.

    For the exclusive collection, Sophie Bille Brahe was inspired by “Stealing Beauty”, the sensual drama by Italian film director Bernardo Bertolucci. The movie conveys a romantic feeling that says more than meets the eye, there is something deeply mysterious about it. With Jardin de Rêve, Sophie was drawn to Italy, it’s the summer in the 90s, and she sees a young girl, a flower dress floating in the morning breeze, the touch of the wet, dewy grass on her bare feet.

    Jardin de Rêve is the first collection that combines pearls and diamonds. The Danish designer went all on romance, playing with the volume and the gravity of the earrings. Bille Brahe immersed herself in an upside-down world, where the volume is at the bottom - a lapse in time to explore oneself; magical things await.

    The collection encompasses six styles – and the Jardin de Rêve is the centre piece. The chandelier-style pair of earrings features smooth freshwater pearls combined with 1,29ct of round white diamonds. The exclusive capsule offers a new take on Sophie Bille Brahe’s iconic styles as well as refined originals.

    J: Please tell us a bit more about the collection and the inspiration behind it. 

    S: Jardin de Rêve is an exclusive collection of 6 styles created for Mytheresa. I was deeply inspired by Stealing Beauty, a movie by Bertolucci set in Italy. Italy has always been a great source of inspiration for me, and this movie shows the best of it. It’s very romantic but also mysterious and sensual, it’s about finding oneself in the warm summer of Italy.


    J: Do you have any personal connections to Italy? 

    S:I have family in Rome and a good friend who lives in Sicily. As far as I can recall, I’ve always visited Italy and enjoyed it. It gives me a felling like nowhere else in the world, the food, the landscapes, the culture. I always find inspiration there.
     

    J: What has been the most challenging part in creating this collection and how was it to collaborate with Mytheresa? 

    S: Jardin de Rêve is my first collection featuring styles combining pearls and diamonds. I played a lot with the volume and the gravity for this collection and had to make sure it was harmonious in the end.
    Mytheresa is a long-standing partner and it’s always such a pleasure to work with them. I have the freedom to be creative and unconventional, which is the best condition when you design jewellery. 


    J: The brand was founded in 2011 and has since then been seen on various style icons and celebrities like Lykke Li, Rihanna and Pernille Tiesbek to name a few. What have been some of your biggest milestones so far and what keeps you motivated? 

    S: When I see women with a pair of earrings or a necklace I designed, it’s the best reward there is and that’s what keeps me motivated.
    For my SS23 collection, Magical Thinking, I’ve been lucky enough to work with actress and model Dree Hemingway, which has been a dream of mine for a very long time. I feel truly fortunate that my job brings me so much joy and challenges.


    J: Who do you see wearing your pieces and what does jewellery mean to you?

    S: I started making jewellery for myself and my friends, even before created my company. Today, I still find my inspiration in these people so dear to me and I think that the women wearing my designs are similar to them. They have an asserted style, they are very feminine and they’re looking for a different way of wearing fine jewellery with a little twist.
    I want my jewellery to become a part of who you are. A pair of earrings or a ring can carry so much history, it’s often used to mark a significant moment in your life like a birth, a wedding or an anniversary and you can pass down these emotions for generations to come. I think it’s very unique.

    Odalisque Magazine Interviews - Wilma Lidén and Edvin Ryding Part 2

    Written by Jahwanna Berglund

    J:How do you handle life before, during and after a recording and do you feel chemically out of balance after life on set?

    W & E: You 100% feel out of balance after shooting.

    E: I would describe it similar to coming home from a summer camp when you were a kid
    and you felt super lonely and just wanted to get back to all your friends, but at the same time it felt so good to be back home.
    W: Post production depression is a thing for real. I would describe the time after as relatively dark. Every role is a new personal journey and you go through so many emotional states both before - during and after shooting. Everyday is packed with new challenges, new people and at the same time you push yourself to be at your absolute best. Going back to your normal everyday  life from this emotional rollercoaster takes time. But most of all, you miss all the energy and the focus from being on set.

    E: It’s really something you learn to become better at, but I don't think it will ever be completely easy,  except if you're not going from one production directly into a new one. You put all your trust in the hand of the director and you're so vulnerable during this time too.
    It's a lot of preparation to find your way of portraying your role and I would say it takes as long as the preparation does to separate yourself completely from the whole scenario. After wrapping it's a lot of post production like the editing and sound mixing where you get to see what you actually have been up to. 

    W: Absolutely! You start to reflect a lot afterwards about what you could have done differently, especially when you start to see parts of what you've been doing.
    That's always a mix of emotions. No matter how hard a shoot has been or how self-judgmental I can be afterwards I always look back and glorify the time on set. I can’t be without it.

    E: You really have to build up a good trustable relationship between you and the director to make both the time and the finished product as good as possible. It makes it easier to focus and be present in the scenes and communication is a big part of that.

    J: Describe the love for your work and do you have a dream role and a role you would never play?

    E:  I would say that the love I have for my work is a bit complex, but I'm glad I feel as though there’s nothing better in life than acting.I’m so extremely grateful that I get to have this as my job.

    W:  I’ve always loved my job and never doubted if this is the right thing for me, I do have doubts, but never on my motivation and passion.
    Dream role - I’ll know it when I see it. I love to play roles where you can retrieve some sides from yourself and at the same time explore other characteristics traits you don’t have. I don’t want to watch something I’ve done with the feeling that I portrayed myself.

    E: I wouldn’t say I have a specific dream role. I know I would like to portray people that exist or have existed, a musician or a selfless psychopath maybe. As long as it's a good and interesting story that catches my attention I would be down to play anything.  Like Wilma said, it's fun to explore traits that are as far from you as possible but where you also can  look back at events in your own life and mix traits from yourself.

    J: Theater or film and why?

    W: I studied theater during my high school years and there are many theater techniques I find interesting. I’ve always been more drawn to film, but I am open to both.

    E: I can feel very touched when I'm watching both theater and film, but when it comes to what I practice I feel more drawn towards film and I watch more films.
    I never took any theater or acting classes, although I had an internship at Stadsteatern (Stockholm City Theater), under  two weeks I got to observe a colleague during preparations and rehearsals for the theater production and that was a magical experience.
    I really appreciate teather, I’m open to it and would also love to try it, but at this time I prefer and feel more drawn towards film, that will most likely change a lot back and forth though as my life goes on. In both cases it’s so many components that need to operate for it to be fun and turn out good.

    J: How far would you go for the art of acting?

    W: I could go extremely far but not hurt myself or my values. You must be able to watch yourself in the mirror at the end of the day and recognise what you see! I’ve never been afraid to talk to the director if a scene makes me feel uncomfortable.

    E: I heard when you work with creative jobs you work on a spectrum where you have “comfort  - discomfort - pain - injury and trauma” and you mainly wanna work in the “discomfort” part of the spectrum. You don't wanna be too comfortable and be in the comfort zone of the spectrum. You always want to stop before “pain”, but you want to push yourself to new levels of your profession within the “discomfort” section, without harming yourself.
    There are different degrees of harm. In some roles you may need to gain or lose extremely much weight, which can be very stressful for the body. Personally I would be willing to go far both physically and mentally for a role.
    But that doesn't mean you not shouldnt question if its a scene you feel uncomfortable doing. Like how some intimate scenes can be written at first. 


    W: Absolutely, a question I always go back to is whether a scene is necessary for the story or if it’s just to sell a sexy vibe.

    J:Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Both personal and career goals.
    (Edvin 24 years and Wilma 25 years)

    W: I see myself being a better version of the Wilma I am today. I can’t wait to get away from the classic 20ies: overthinking, insecurities, anxiety and teenage drama. I feel like In five years I will have come a long way in dealing with my childhood mess and my years with anorexia, depression and PTSD.
    In my career I hope I continue to learn a lot and get opportunities to show what I go for and LEARN!

    E: Life always surprises you when you least expect it.
    You never know where you end up. What I do know and believe is that humans are very good at adapting to their surroundings, so the future is not anything that really stresses or scares me. 
    I hope my work continues to move forward, takes me to more fascinating places around the world and brings a lot  of new interesting meetings. 
    Personally I hope to become better at preventing and handling situations I've been experiencing the last year or years.
