With influences from art and architecture, Eddie Borgo's New York-meets-London style has captured our attention since he launched his label in 2008.
After introducing a gorgeous line of handbags last year, we thought it was time to catch up with the man who is redefining luxury to hear about how it all began and what the future will hold for Eddie Borgo fans...
Let's start at the beginning. How did Eddie Borgo the jeweller come to be?
I started learning metalsmithing as a hobby while I was still at university, and I was also assisting different stylists at that time. Those stylists started to request one of a kind pieces for their photo shoots, and I began to create jewellery for them. These pieces together became a small capsule collection, which I showcased in New York in 2008, and was picked up by Barney's, Colette, Liberty, and Joyce.
Who are your favourite artists?
I love the Modern Sculptors - Tony Smith, Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd. I also am extremely interested in architecture and object and furniture design, so my attention is focused in those areas.
Do you think your style has American influences?
Every piece of our jewellery is inspired by New York, inspired by the culture here. I think that spirit is evident is each piece we create.
