Sevan Bıçakçı in Ocean's 8
The summer film season is off to a dazzling start, and one of the most anticipated movies featuring Sevan Bıçakçı jewelry throughout.
Oceans 8, actress Cate Blanchett wears Sevan Bıçakçı jewelry as the character Lou. The spinoff of Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s” trilogy also stars Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna. Bullock plays the estranged sister of Danny Ocean (Clooney’s character in the remakes).
The pairing of Blanchett’s character with Sevan Bıçakçı jewelry was made by costume designer Meghan Kasperlik. Several Sevan Bıçakçı necklaces, bracelets and a carved ring are worn by Lou in scenes pre-and post- Met Gala robbery.
Kasperlik was surprised to hear that just a couple months prior to filming, Blanchett had travelled to Istanbul and met with Sevan, as well as Emre Dilaver (Creative Director of Sevan Bıçakçı) at his workshop outside of the Grand Bazaar. The timing of Cate’s visit and Megan’s request was coincidental but as the film will soon show, meant to be, states Dilaver. “Sevan found Ms. Blanchett to be the loveliest of guests when she visited him in Istanbul and he was honored to have her wear these one-of-a-kind pieces in the film.”
