I was doing some research on the designer Eddie Borgo after I spotted one of his gorgeous designs when it came to my attention that the jewelry in Camilla Staerk’s Spring/Summer 2009 collection was, in fact, the result of a collaboration between Staerk and Borgo. The two teamed-up for a capsule collection whose debut was marked in Staerk’s September runway show.
Available in the spring exclusively at Camilla Staerk’s new Mulberry boutique, the jewelry collection was inspired by Karen Blixen, famed Author of “Out of Africa”. This is the same theme that inspired Staerk’s S/S 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection.
A metal fern is the focal point of the jewelry line and was inspired by a motif on a vintage Scandinavian vase. Borgo and Staerk creatively developed the fern in modern materials and a variety of pieces which include: a stud earring, a curved bracelet, and a brooch (large and small).
If you can’t wait until the spring Eddie Borgo’s namesake jewelry line, which retails for between $100 and $1000, is currently available at Camilla Staerk’s boutique which was designed by Staerk herself and is most certainly worth checking out for anyone in the Nolita area.
