ENG: It was a last minute decision to attend the Thomas Sabo AW16 launch event, as my companion had cancelled an hour before I was about to leave. Going alone was not so much appealing, however I did promise myself that I was going to be more socially active for the sake of the blog.

It was a lovely evening, so I walked from Oxford Circus to the shop at South Molton street (I will tell you a bit more of that in a post later on). This particular shop is the biggest in UK representing the brand, and for the launch it was full of people.

To be honest I don’t have anything from Thomas Sabo, I am currently going through my gold phase, anyway, and when spending a good deal of money on jewellery I prefer to get something much less commercial and more personalized and special.

On the other hand, however, I was curious to finally learn something about this brand, as the name has Hungarian roots (SABO = SZABO in Hungarian means “tailor”). I did some research and found out that the brand was established in 1984, in Bavaria, Germany, focusing on silver jewellery (all gold ones are only plated with a silver base) – that time it was an exceptionally brave and innovative move to break out from the anonymity and create a brand around ones jewellery  pieces. thomas sabo, london, south molton street, thomas sabo aw16

Thomas Sabo then teamed up with graphic designer Susanne Kolbli and the rest is history. I also learned that Thomas Sabo is very committed to help disadvantaged children and considers charity as an essential part of his life.

Do you own any pieces from the brand? What do you think of the Thomas Sabo lifestyle?

HU: Az utolso pillanatban dontottem ugy, hogy megis eleget teszek a meghivasnak es elmegyek a Thomas Sabo bemutatora. Dragam egy oraval az indulas elott bedobta a torolkozot, viszont en megigertem magamnak, hogy sokkal aktivabb leszek a bloggal kapcsolatban, igy magam is nekivagtam.

Nagyon kellemes este volt, ezert setalva jutottam el az Oxford Circus-tol a South Molton utcaban talalhato uzletbe (a setam soran keszult kepeket hamarosan szinten megmutatom), amely tele volt emberekkel. Szinte alig lehetett megmozdulni, plussz mindenhol selfizo es fenykepezo vendegek nyuzsogtek. thomas sabo, london, south molton street, thomas sabo aw16

Igazabol nincs egyetlen egy Thomas Sabo ekszerem sem, egyebkent is epp az arany/rozskvarc korszakomat elem, es ha mar ennyi penzt kiadok egy ekszerert, akkor legyen legalabb egyedi es kulonleges.

Az viszont erdekelt nagyon, hogy mi is a brand tortenete, foleg, hogy a tulajdonosnak magyar neve van (Sabo=Szabo). Utananeztem hat a neten, ha mar meghivtak – Thomas Sabo 1984-ben alapitotta meg a brandet (az angol website hol osztraknak, hol nemetnek irja le), ami akkor nagyon kirivo dolognak szamitott, ugyanis az ekszereszek kizarolag anonim dolgoztak. Par evvel kesobb Thomas tarsult egy grafikussal, Susanne Kolbli-val, a tobbi pedig mar tortenelem.

Kizarolag ezust ekszerekre specializalodott a brand, az arany es egyeb feluletek csupan galvanizalt retegek, sokszor a Pandoraval emlitik egy kategoriaban – a kulonbseg hatarozottan egyreszt az arban van, illetve a Thomas Sabo darabok tobb kreativ/muveszi reszletet hordoznak, mint a Pandora ekszerek.

Neked van a brandtol barmilyen darabod? Mi a velemenyed a Thomas Sabo eleterzesrol?
