Joia mistica

Sucesso entre a realeza e astros de Hollywood, os braceletes Shamballa são inspirados na lenda de um reino de paz e espiritualidade no Himalaia. Mas foi no Brasil que o criador da marca teve seu maior encontro com a natureza

O Fotos: Morten BjarnhoF | divulgação

Texto Suzana Camargo

O ano era 1990 e Mads Kornerup, então com 19 anos, decidiu explorar o mundo. Um amigo sugeriu que ele viesse ao Brasil e passasse um ano no País. O jovem dinamarquês não hesitou e embarcou na aventura. “Me apaixonei pelo país, pelo povo e pela língua”, conta. “Ainda hoje, adoro falar português.” No dia 8 de abril daquele mesmo ano, quando completava 20 anos, viajou para Lençóis, na Bahia, região conhecida pelas jazidas de diamantes no século 19. Perto dali, escalou e chegou ao alto da Cachoeira da Fumaça. “Foi naquele dia, diante daquela vista, que me dei conta de que eu só seria realmente inteiro se estivesse em contato com a natureza e que a vida me foi concedida nesse jardim mágico chamado Terra.” Kornerup diz que deve ao Brasil e à Cachoeira da Fumaça o despertar para a pessoa que ele é. E hoje o designer dinamarquês é o badalado diretor criativo da Shamballa Jewels. Suas joias são comercializadas em diversos países da Europa, América do Norte e Ásia. Os braceletes criados por ele já foram vistos no pulso de celebridades como Gwyneth Paltrow, Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, do rapper Jay Z e das princesas da Dinamarca e da Noruega. No ano passado, Kornerup inaugurou com orgulho a primeira flagship store da Shamballa em Copenhague e já planeja abrir lojas próprias em Londres, Paris e Nova York. O designer trabalha em parceria com o irmão Mikkel, responsável pela área financeira e de produção da empresa. Nascido em uma família que atua no ramo imobiliário e da construção civil, Kornerup sempre teve uma estreita relação com a arte e a espiritualidade. No Brasil, conheceu a beleza e a energia das pedras preciosas. Depois, viajou para o Oriente. Esteve no Ja-

pão, Índia, Nepal e Tailândia. “A ioga e a meditação me levaram até lá”, conta. Nesses países, teve a chance de conhecer de perto o trabalho de ourives e descobriu a riqueza do trabalho feito à mão.

Amuleto da sorte

A Shamballa Jewels é fruto da experiência multicultural de Mads Kornerup mundo afora. O nome foi inspirado em um reino místico de Shamballa, no Himalaia, descrito em escrituras ancestrais. Seria um lugar povoado por pessoas iluminadas e cheias de compaixão. Os dois raios da estrela de Shamballa, que estão nas contas dos braceletes da marca, simbolizam a força advinda da mente pura e consciente. “Desenho joias inspiradas em símbolos espirituais, textos e iconografias, de tal forma que um bracelete de ouro e diamantes pode se transformar em algo cheio de tradição e significado”, acredita. “Espero que, ao usá-la, a pessoa se lembre de que é preciso ter compaixão e estimule quem estiver a sua volta a fazer o mesmo.” Mas nem só de paz e amor foi feito o começo dos negócios da joalheria. Como morava em Nova York, Kornerup decidiu abrir uma loja na cidade. Foi

obrigado a fechar as portas por causa do atentado terrorista de 11 de setembro de 2001. “Por seis meses, não consegui vender nada. Os Estados Unidos estavam em guerra, os turistas eram poucos, e os norte-americanos economizavam dinheiro e não gastavam com joias.” De volta à Dinamarca, criou, nesse mesmo ano, a peça que fez da Shamballa Jewels uma marca conhecida. Segundo ele, o sucesso da pulseira se deu principalmente pela falta de joias que pudessem ser usadas de maneira mais relaxada. “Mesmo buscando peças mais informais, as pessoas ainda querem ter um bracelete com diamantes, design exclusivo e qualidade inigualável”, diz Kornerup. A tradição do design clean e sofisticado da Escandinávia é evidente nas criações da marca. Entre 2007 e 2012, a pulseira virou febre internacional. A preferida de Kornerup, que ele usa todos os dias, tem contas de ouro rosa com letras do alfabeto romano e sânscrito com as iniciais dos nomes de seus dois filhos, Storm e Nor. Atualmente, seis profissionais e especialistas em ourivesaria produzem manualmente as joias na sede da empresa, em Copenhague. Além de desenhar, o diretor criativo da Shamballa trança e monta os braceletes. Não há lançamento de coleções, já que as peças são customizadas. A marca fabrica ainda colares, anéis, brin-

cos e abotoaduras. “Gosto de introduzir novos estilos, mas não temos uma ditadura de moda ou estação.” A experiência de Kornerup no Brasil foi tão marcante que é citada no texto do site da Shamballa sobre o processo de criação das joias. Em algumas peças produzidas em edição limitada, Kornerup usou turmalina Paraíba, pedra brasileira considerada uma das mais raras do mundo. “Espero incluir mais turmalinas brasileiras e quartzo rutilado nas minhas peças em breve”, avisa. Curiosamente, o dinamarquês ainda não conseguiu trazer suas criações para o país de que tanto gosta. Segundo ele, os altos impostos de importação inviabilizam o negócio. Mas deixa escapar que, se encontrasse um parceiro comercial, adoraria vender suas joias por aqui. A última vez que ele esteve no Brasil foi há sete anos, para participar do casamento de um amigo no Rio de Janeiro. O diretor da Shamballa, que continua praticando ioga e meditação diariamente, ainda lembra com carinho e saudade da época que passou na Bahia. “Na minha próxima vida, espero morar no Brasil”, finaliza.

Q&A

IN A PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER EXCLUSIVE, MIKKEL AND MADS KORNERUP, THE BROTHERS BEHIND GLOBAL JEWELLERY PHENOMENON SHAMBALLA JEWELS, DISCUSS PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, BALANCING SPIRITUALITY WITH BUSINESS GROWTH AND THEIR RETAIL PLANS — EACH GIVING THEIR OWN PERSONAL INSIGHT INTO THE BUSINESS.

Brothers in Arms

Mikkel Kornerup Chief executive officer, Shamballa Jewels

Mads Kornerup Creative director, Shamballa Jewels

PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER: THINKING BACK OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, HOW HAS SHAMBALLA JEWELS DEVELOPED AS A GLOBAL BRAND? Mikkel Kornerup: For a young brand, we have a global presence in over 30 countries. In 2013, we doubled our points of sale in existing markets. We are now focusing on consolidating existing markets.

professionaljeweller.com

Mads Kornerup: The Shamballa bracelet design is one of the most easily recognisable styles today. Whether at a beach in Ibiza, the catwalks of Paris or the Himalayas, many people know what a Shamballa bracelet is. For me that signifies our rise as a true global brand. The word Shamballa is a mantra of wisdom and compassion and I look forward to hearing this mantra in all nooks of the world. January 2015 | PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER

PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER, MARCH 2015

Q&A

SHAMBALLA

PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER: WHICH LAUNCHES HAVE BEEN MOST IMPORTANT FOR THE BRAND OVER THE PAST YEAR? Mikkel: Our three new bracelets, the Korne Pavé, the Royal Bracelet and the Tennis bracelet. These differ from the Shamballa bracelet in design as they do not feature macramé braiding. All three designs have been received very well. It has proved to the industry that our capability extends beyond the Shamballa bracelet. The launches of our rings, pedants and earrings have been equally important to propel us forward as a full repertoire fine jewellery company.

Mads: For me it has been the Korne Pavé bracelet — it is a masculine piece with leather and customisable diamond shields. While I love designing for women as well, my passion is designing for men. The Korne Pavé is a handsomely crafted piece, which is quite heavy on the diamonds. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to see men wearing it. When we started [the business], men were still wary of wearing diamonds.

PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER: HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN THE GROWTH OF SHAMBALLA JEWELS WHILE KEEPING ITS ETHOS AND SPIRITUAL VALUES AT THE FOREFRONT? Mikkel: Our spiritual values are a part of our commerce. We focus on honesty, quality, compassion and respect for our clients.

Mads: Spirituality is about offering the best you can; therefore I see no disconnect between commerce and spirituality. Design should have a purpose and a story to tell, and our jewellery carries forward the message of the Kingdom of Shamballa — of wisdom and compassion. Most of our clients can afford everything they want; what we offer them is something meaningful, a positive reminder. I continue my mission of creating meaningful jewellery.

PROFESSIONAL JEWELLER: SHAMBALLA JEWELS IS SEEKING TO EXPAND AS A FINE JEWELLERY LABEL WHILE MAINTAINING ITS POSITION AS A LEADING LUXURY BRACELET BRAND — HOW WILL YOUR DESIGNS DEVELOP IN THE COMING SEASONS? Mikkel: We will be launching our new designs at Baselworld 2015. Our designs will continue to be customisable and offer something for everyone. Prices will begin at €3,000 and go up to €500,000 for our limited-edition pieces.

Mads: Apart from our new launches, my focus is also on our rare, limited-edition pieces. I am using larger carats of diamonds [and] more white and black diamonds. The aim is to go rarer, magical and very exclusive. We will be revealing our new designs at Baselworld 2015, so can’t share much here.

ZEN, CZECH REPUBLIC, NOVEMBER 2014

k

do z obyvatel západního světa nebyl v nějaké etapě svého života zarytým buddhistou či aspoň nekoketoval s jinými duchovními naukami, jako by snad ani nebyl. Ve světových metropolích jsou dnes na každém kroku rozesety buddhistické restaurace, čajovny, knihy i jídlo. Touhu moderní civilizace po mystičnu ostatně dokazuje i ZEN, který vás zásobuje nejmíň jedním duchovně laděným textem měsíčně. Tento trend zachytil i Mads Kornerup, spolumajitel šperkařské firmy Shamballa Jewels, jež prorazila luxusními náramky ve stylu modlitebních korálků buddhistických mnichů. Šperky cestovatele a jogína ověšeného korálky, který se v září na skok zastavil v Praze, nosí třeba dánská korunní princezna Mary, zpěvačka Beyoncé, návrhář Giorgio Armani či basketbalová legenda Michael Jordan, kteří za ně neváhají platit tisíce eur. Inspirován svými cestami se kdysi Mads rozhodl nejprve vozit náhrdelníky a náramky z Indie, Bali či Indonésie. V New Yorku, kde dlouho pracoval jako asistent módních fotografů, pak dovezené šperky prodával. „Vždycky jsem vše prodal za pár minut.“ Ať už to bylo předurčení osudu či obchodní cit, jak vyplnit díru na trhu, Mads začal šperky z drahých kamenů a kovů vyrábět sám. Před třinácti lety založil firmu, ke které se o tři roky později přidal i jeho bratr Mikkel. A tak vznikla Shamballa Jewels. V současnosti má obchody od Austrálie po Rusko, jižní Asii a nově i Českou republiku. „Záleží na mentálním stavu. Když na něco dlouho myslíte, je velká šance, že se v budoucnosti objeví něco, co vám k cíli dopomůže,“ říká s úsměvem Mads, který tvrdí, že vše, čeho v posledních dvaceti letech dosáhl, je dílem náhody. Stejně jako setkání s rapperem Jay-Z, pro něhož vytvořil první náramek z drhané šňůrky zdobené zlatými korálky s diamanty. Na název Shamballa přišel Mads během svého čtyřletého pobytu v Káthmándú, kde hledal vnitřní klid mezi hinduistickým a buddhistickým světem. Shamballa je mytické království skryté v nepřístupném údolí vysoko v Himálaji. Doslovně přeloženo ze sanskrtu je to „místo

míru a poklidu“. Náramky Shamballa nosili již staří Tibeťané, kteří věřili v jejich kouzelnou a léčebnou moc. Působí prý na Dharmačakru, jež navozuje pokoj v duši. „V buddhistickém umění je uzamčeno díky geografické poloze cosi tajemného. Moje interpretace tamního světa jsou šperky, které vytvářím.“

Sortiment Shamballa Jewels zahrnuje také prsteny, náušnice, manžetové knoflíčky a náhrdelníky. Značka je v prodeji ve vlajkovém butiku v kodani a v síti autorizovaných prodejců, mezi něž patří například obchodní domy Barneys, harrods, klenotnictví Wempe či concept story Montaigne Market a Colette. V Česku si korálky Shamballa Jewels můžete exkluzivně zakoupit v pražském Carollinu, Pařížská 11, Praha 1.

Lagerfeldovo selfie Ústřední symbol a znak firmy, dvojité žezlo blesků (tibetsky Dordže Gjadam), je symbolem energie, která chrání nejen naše těla před vnějším nebezpečím, ale především naše vědomí před temnotou. Je vyjádřením stavu osvobozené mysli. Novou kolekci designérští bratři doplnili o pyramidy. „K jejich přidání mě inspirovalo setkání s mužem, který staví v Mexiku dřevěné pyramidy a v nich pěstuje zeleninu a byliny. A těm se moc dobře daří,“ říká s nadšením Mads, který se prý nikdy necítil jako designér. „Dávám dohromady kousky a materiály, které se mi prostě líbí. Vlastně dělám šperky sobě na míru.“ Všechny šperky Shamballa Jewels se vyrábějí z 18karátového zlata, čirých a barevných diamantů, drahokamů a perel s certifikací A až B. Na otázku, jak souvisí duchovno vložené do šperků s cenou, která začíná na třech tisících eurech, Mads odpovídá: „Vybírám drahé kameny, které jsou pro každou oblast nejvíce ceněné. Šperk je něco osobního, do čeho vkládáte víru i kus sebe sama. Navíc každý z náramků je originál, broušený, leštěný i vázaný ručně.“ Kromě obyčejných movitých smrtelníků je hojně nosí hollywoodské celebrity. „Některé známé osobnosti nás dokonce žádají o to, abychom jim korálky dali zadarmo, a oni nám za to udělají reklamu. Takhle ale náš byznys nefunguje. Mají stejné šance a možnosti koupit si je jako kdokoliv jiný, kdo o ně má zájem. Například Karl Lagerfeld je náš častý zákazník. Návrhy mu posílám vždy elektronicky. Když se mu šperk líbí, my jej vyrobíme, jeho asistent vyzvedne a sám návrhář mi pak pošle své selfíčko,“ směje se Mads, který vypadá, že má vše zenově na háku. ZEN51
