One of the highlights from this last year was working with Sara Goldfine on this jewelry collection called Fantasme. It was really cool to be part of the design process from start to finish with her and our other collaborator, Jeannine Cavallo. It was like, ok if there was any dream piece of jewelry you could put into the universe, what would it be?! We dove into inspiration and found ourselves drawn to the elements of illusion and ornate embellishment that we were seeing in top couture design houses like Dior, Chanel, Miu Miu.
We wanted pieces that absorbed & then reflected the enigma of womanhood. The complex yet congruous elements of femininity- the element of mystique & playful, provocative & demure, bold yet relaxed. To create jewelry and accessories that can be unexpected and exciting, that elevate an entire look and vibe from the moment it’s fastened on.
The style, lifestyle, and personas of iconic or stand-out women & heroines past and of-the-moment were deeply interwoven in the development of this line – Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma, Giovanna Battaglia, Michelle Obama, Kendall Jenner, Audrey Hepburn, Olivia Pope, Blair Waldorf, Olivia Palermo, Emma Watson.
We wanted pieces that could be styled for the every day or for those dolled-up-to-the-max moments. I’ve loved seeing each piece take different forms when styled by different photographers and stylists with various visions and aesthetics. I think for being pieces with such a strong point of view, they’re surprisingly transcendent among several types of fashion-leanings.
Each of the pieces have been made by hand with heart, with silks, wools and cotton bobbinet sourced from Europe meticulously by Jeannine Cavallo, a local fashion designer who trained under master embroiderists at the renowned LeSage in Paris.
I hope you love what we’ve created.
