1. EDDIE BORGO SPRING SUMMER 2012 COLLECTION TAKES INSPIRATION FROM THE POWER OF SYMBOLS, AND THE ART ASSOCIATED WITH MAGIC AND THE OCCULT. REFERENCING FAMILIAR WICCAN TALISMANS AND MAGICAL AND RITUALISTIC SHAPES, PENTAGRAMS, STARS AND HEARTS HAVE BEEN REWORKED WITH A MODERN GEOMETRIC SENSIBILITY. THE WORKS AND LIVES OF NOTED BRITISH OCCULTISTS ALEISTER CROWLEY AND AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE ARE ALSO IMBUED IN THE COLLECTION. THE UNCONVENTIONAL EFFORTS OF BOTH MEN TO SUBVERT THE FAMILIAR AND SACRED IS REFLECTED IN THE DELICATE, YET SOMEWHAT OMINOUS SHAPES THAT COMPOSE THE PIECES.

    THE COLLECTION IS COMPRISED OF SEVERAL DISTINCT, YET RELATED FORMS; THE STAR, THE HEART, THE PENTAGRAM AND THE ARROW. THE SHAPES ARE HAND CUT IN SOLID BRASS RELIEF, WITH AN AFTER-EFFECT OF GEOMETRIC LACE, AND ARE THEN POWDER COATED IN MATTE BLACK, MATTE WHITE, OR LAVENDER. GROSGRAIN RIBBON, PAVE CRYSTAL, AND BLOND AND CHOCOLATE HORSEHAIR APPEAR AS ACCENTS, ADDING A SOFTENING TOUCH TO THE DARKER THEMES UNDERPINNING THIS SEASON’S INSPIRATION.

  2. GOLD HAS LONG SYMBOLIZED POWER, VALOUR, AND STRENGTH, AND WAS TRADITIONALLY WORN BY ONLY THE NOBILITY. WHILE ITS USE HAS EXPANDED, ITS VALUE STILLS STANDS. CAST SOLELY IN GOLD, EDDIE BORGO’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 COLLECTION DELVES INTO ITS ASSOCIATIONS WITH STATUS AND DECADENCE. INSTANTLY RECOGNIZABLE NOW, BOLD AND OVERSIZED GOLD JEWELRY WAS PRIMARILY USED BY DESIGNERS SUCH AS CHANEL AND GIANNI VERSACE IN THE 1980S AS A BRANDING EXERCISE ON THEIR RUNWAYS—THE OVERSIZED USE OF COMPANY MOTIFS IN GOLD SYMBOLICALLY BROADCASTING THE DESIRABILITY OF THEIR GOODS. IT WAS WITH FASHION EDITORS SUCH AS CARLYNE CERF DE DUDZEELE THAT THESE COSTUME PIECES MOVED OFF OF THE CATWALK AND ONTO EVERYONE’S WISH LISTS—HER TRADEMARK “ACCESSORIZED TO THE HILT” LOOK, WITH PILES OF GOLD CHAINS AND CUFFS, IS INEXTRICABLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE LATE 1980S AND EARLY 1990S. THE WEARING OF GOLD JEWELRY REPRESENTED STATUS, LUXURY AND ELEGANCE, AND THIS WAS BROADCAST AND UNDERSTOOD NO MATTER THE CLOTHING. SUCH DISPLAYS OF CONSPICUOUS CONSUMPTION TRICKLED DOWN THROUGH SOCIETY WITH THE RISE OF LOGOMANIA IN THE 1990S, TARNISHING THE PERCEPTION OF GOLD FOR A DECADE.

    A HOMAGE NOT ONLY TO THE STATEMENT JEWELRY OF THE 1980S AND 90S, THIS COLLECTION ALSO LOOKS TO THE CLEAN SHAPES AND MINIMAL SILHOUETTES OF THAT ERA. FEATURING FOR THE FIRST TIME A SIGNATURE LINK—THE LATTICE—EDDIE BORGO’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 COLLECTION USES REOCCURRING GEOMETRIC SHAPES, INCLUDING HEXAGONS, PENTAGONS AND CIRCLES, TO REDEFINE CLASSICISM FOR TODAY’S MODERN WOMAN.
