The collection, the portraits and everything we love about this unique collaboration
The Fore, a platform that seamlessly combines fashion and the art of collaboration with retail by Kim Jones, is something you’ve likely heard of or seen and saved on your bookmarks on Instagram. Following the success of its earlier efforts with Ken Samudio and Bagasáo, Jones comes out with The Fore x Pranca, The Fore’s third collaboration in less than a year.
Who is Pranca?
Pranca, as you might have thought, is inspired by the Filipino word prangka which refers to someone who says things as they are. Naturally, their designs express honesty and are made for the sartorially unapologetic. Bold but never in-your-face, Pranca is made not just for special occasions but for every day.
x Pranca is a collection of demi-fine jewelry featuring South Sea Baroque Pearls and 14-karat gold, which The Fore designed with under-the-radar brand Pranca. Challenging our collective notions associated with jewelry, each piece in x Pranca celebrates the beauty in opposites and imperfection. It brings together unique elements, like gold pieces with irregular curves and textures inspired by Baroque Pearls, that can be worn alone, paired with one another or with what you already own.
Truly versatile in design, the possibilities are limitless with x Pranca.
To celebrate The Fore x Pranca and in the spirit of diversity, The Fore launched the collection through a series of portrait collaborations with photographers from New York, California, Berlin and Milan with their muses or as the platform fondly calls them, “true influencers.” Meet:

Always true to form, The Fore continues to bring local and independent talent to the local and global forefront. And honestly, we can’t wait for their next collection of wearable art.
