I had a true OMG, "where have I been" moment, when I came across Alex & Lee's jewelry designs for Proenza Schouler's Resort 2012 collection.
Apparently, “Jewelry ha[d] been on the minds of Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for some time... At the Hyères Festival this past Spring, the duo announced they were working on a small collection of extremely limited costume pieces in fluorescent colors and chunky shapes. For their Resort ‘12 collection, which the designers describe as an exploration of craft and late sixties West Coast culture, they took the idea one step further, collaborating with the art jewelry line Alex & Lee, a staple of San Francisco’s crafts scene in the seventies.” (Schneier, November 25, 2011)
I am so thrilled that I stumbled on such an incredible collaboration between two wonderful house names. For the past few months I have been thirsting for some inspiration for Pure Love; now, my thirst has been quenched.
