This Jewelry is K/LLER

Edited by

Made of porcupine quills both cast and natural, the jewelry by Parsons grad duo in BK Katie deGuzman and Michael Miller, is both sharp and K/LLER. Their aesthetic melds hard and soft, dangerous and sweet with androgynous, rustic properties, and their methods involve thrilling chemical reactions and primal methodology. After keeping it editorially cool in our fruit shoot last week, we had to tell you more about these K/LLER designers.

DESIGNER DAILY: Bliss Lau

Edited by

Leather stripped body jewelry is quite on point. In fact, it’s pure bliss. After five years of designing handbags, Bliss Lau began draping her leather scraps on an old mannequin from her Parsons days.  What formed were skirts, shirts, vests, arm pieces, of leather strips connected by chains, that move with the shape of the human body. Using her learned eco-friendly bag-making techniques, she constructs extremely versatile and incredibly unique body adornments. See how they sway on spinning ballerinas in this stunning film.

Designer Daily: Jonathan Simkhai

Edited by

Jonathan Simkhai has got the eye. While perusing the better part of his Spring 2012 collection on the Lower East Side at A. Turen (neon tweed with mesh insets, multi texture mullet tees, sheer panelled maxis), store owner Ashley Turen tells me about how once his collection arrived at the store, he spent five hours merchandising the store and tricking out the displays. He’s well involved with his stockists, and is making clothes that want to be worn. A NY native, he got the fashion itch at 14, worked retail on the buying front, continued onto Parsons & FIT, and now at 26, he’s designing salaciously wearable collections. See a taste of Spring and Fall ’12 here.
