Profits from the Meditating Eye collection will be donated to his charitable Foundation
You’re reading Dazed so we will assume you already know who David Lynch is, but just in case, he’s the guy who brought you Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart. You might not know is that he directed a perfume ad for Karl Lagerfeld in the 90s starring Daryl Hannah. Or that he created a line of athleisure for women. Even more unexpected is the recent news that he designed a jewellery collection.
Entitled ‘Meditating Eye’, the collection features evil eye motifs on bracelets, necklaces and cuffs with the eye open on one side and closed on the other. “The Meditating Eye collection was created as a symbol, encouraging every human being to access that ocean of pure consciousness within,” said Lynch on why he chose the icon for the collection.
20% of each item sold will be donated to the David Lynch Foundation which works towards helping veterans and victims of domestic violence through the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique. Lynch – who has been practising TM for over 40 years – credits it as helping his creative process that was “filled with worries and anxieties” before. Now he has found his inner bliss. The Foundation – that was founded in 2005 – also helps the homeless, prisoners and people living with HIV/AIDS.
The Meditating Eye collection is available online now.
