Launched in Paris in 2016, the first ŞENER BESIM Eyewear collection was received with overwhelming enthusiasm from the international fashion industry. Securing floor space at the world's most progressive and renowned boutiques including Colette, L'Eclaireur, Dover Street Market, and Just One Eye LA. Handmade in Japan, the range is comprised of multiple but related models. Like links in a chain, they tell a tale of integrity, complexity, & proportion.
In 2018 ŞENER BESIM debuted his first Fine Jewellery collection, marking the expansion of the luxury brand & a sign of things to come. Each piece hand-crafted in 18kt gold or sterling silver features turquoise & black diamond details. Inspired by Ottoman architecture & Modernist sculpture, the pieces are of the moment but still timeless; each celebrating the qualities of perfect geometry, a restrained sense of exuberance, & sophisticated stillness.
With the 2020 launch of the ŞENER BESIM vermeil jewellery line & the opening of the flagship store, this year was arguably the birth of the brand as it exists today. Newly focussed on demi-fine product, the collection expanded rapidly and developed a loyal following just as quickly.
2022 saw the inception of the ŞENER BESIM ready-to-wear category, the release of his first knitwear capsule was an exciting & long-awaited next step for the designer. Made in Italy of exclusively Italian fabrics, ŞENER BESIM continues his journey to find a balance between luxury & mindfulness.
ŞENER BESIM is an Australian-born, Melbourne-based, internationally renowned designer.
His experience growing up in Australia is typical of second- generation immigrants everywhere. Of neither one place nor another, culturally, spiritually & intellectually he was a go- between.
“An immigrant’s vision shifts between a sense of estrangement from the surrounding environment & a need to attain a productive standpoint; the making of objects, situations & memories generates a new, unexpected dynamic. In this way, I still try to consider myself an immigrant.”
With decades of experience in the luxury industry, ŞENER BESIM has used his immense experience, knowledge, & natural capacity for design, to create a brand true to his most authentic self. Finding inspiration in his heritage, architecture, & the metaphysical, each piece is designed to evoke the values of quietness & equilibrium whilst remaining committed to sustainable, ethical, & socially responsible practices.
“I am drawn to luxury products that exist outside of trends, pieces that sit at the edge of fashion”.
