motherSon by Seeme
SeeMe is a fair trade certified luxury brand - Amsterdam-based and founded in 2012 by Caterina Occhio - that produces heart shaped fashion accessories and provides ethical sourcing for other fashion brands. All of its pieces are handmade by women victims of violence. By wearing the heart SeeMe clients join the #heartmovement, a worldwide movement that aims at replacing violence with love. SeeMe’s artisan precious-metal hearts quickly became a cult icon in international fashion circles where they received enthusiastic support from an elite cadre of industry’s insiders. At Pitti Uomo 88 SeeMe launches a new jewellery concept for men, motherSons, an inaugural collection of leather wrist-cuffs created in collaboration with the designer and multi-creative, Liam Maher, known for collaborative art-based projects which explore menswear tradition and masculine identity.
The motherSons emblem is crafted by hand by the same jewellery artisans in Tunisia and Turkey who create the original SeeMe hearts for women. Each piece is made from premium natural vachettas, tumbled and waxed full-grains as well as specialty skins reclaimed from the bottom of the North Sea and repurposed “reject” hides in dark naturalistic tones and finishes.
