Christine Yufon is an eighty-year old Chinese-Brazilian fashion icon. Her jewellery designs, although nodding to the East, exemplify the wildly colouful, urban primitivist vibe Brazil has made all its own. Her twisted necklaces, carved of sculptural serpentine metal, or carved from wood and forest nuts, owe as much to the jungles of the Amazon as the pages of Vogue.


It is not hard to see why she has been championed by a range of new generation Sao Paulo fashion figures like Marcelo Krasilcic (above), Alexandrew Hercovitch and Neon.
