Asprey’s Cosmic collection had its genesis in the motif of the rocket, which has appeared in Asprey’s home collections for decades: a contemporary take on the retro silhouette.
With a nod towards the atomic age of the 1950s and 60s, Cosmic combines very traditional techniques such as star setting with bold, iconic flourishes. Motifs are taken not just from the celestial bodies of stars and planets, but also from humanity’s exploration of the cosmos.
