Nocturne is a London brand of integrated jewellery and ready-to-wear. The aesthetic is deeply rooted in the artisan crafts of the Orient, with a contemporary London design instinct.
Nocturne is gaining a global cult following for innovative handwork in definitive shapes with eclectic colour compositions, blending jewellery and ready-to-wear to service the multiple end uses required by any modern day urban setting. The result is an international collection that is individual, creative and wearable.
Founded by a French family who moved to Asia in the 1970’s, Nocturne reflects their journey of appreciation for artisan crafts that originated in the small local provinces.
Catherine Howkins, Nocturne's Head of Design, met the founders in 2011 and instantly fell in love with their ethos. Howkins then assembled a creative team with backgrounds including Chloé, Burberry, Paul Smith and Loewe to collectively implement her vision for the brand.
Nocturne studio is based in East London, the diverse cultural melting pot where Nocturne design disciplines come together - combining textile craft, jewellery and modern cut. We collaborate seasonally with local photographers, art directors and stylists to curate the Nocturne identity.
