Their past ambassadors include Elizabeth Debicki, Rose Byrne and Rachel Taylor, famous for their roles in the Australian film industry. Jan Logan have just announced the gorgeous Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin as the face of their new collection of fine jewellery for 2013, titled ‘Hudson’, with the campaign photographed by Chris Colls. Jan Logan’s travels through Los Angeles, New York, and London were the inspiration for the collection; “My travels offered me a kaleidoscope of ideas. Diverse streetscapes, architecture and historical influences, such as the dedication of my son, Andrew Logan’s sculpture in the Canterbury Cathedral in the UK, all contributed to the design direction for the Hudson collection”.
Phoebe Tonkin is most popular for her role in H2O: Just Add Water, which gained her a nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Television Series at the AFI Awards. Since then, she has appeared in a number of Australian feature films and a US mini series, and now based in LA, she holds a permanent role in the US’s The Vampire Diaries. Phoebe has been a fan of the brand, since she wore Jan Logan to her first red carpet event more than 5 years ago. She has some pieces in the collection named after her, which are a combination of white gold, diamonds and labradorite.
For the Hudson collection, the focus is more on unusual stones and materials. Distinctive finishes have been used alongside stones such as radiant tsavorite and warm smoky quartz, paired with black diamonds, Australian South Sea and Tahitian pearls, as well as bright semi-precious materials such as jasper and coral.All images: Chris Colls for Jan Logan
