If you remember my last post on Matches SS11 press day, I featured an upcoming great brand, Joomi Lim. I recently had the chance to interview the New York-based duo Joomi Lim and Xavier Ricolfi create a collection of contemporary jewelry that could easily be named rock’n’roll chic. Her designer’s sensibility lends feminine and intricate details to the collection, while his industrial designer’s roots bring on unusual materials, finishes and cutting-edge technologies. Chains, sleek cuffs and their signature spikes are made of brass and finished with a unique titanium coating that lends deep and changing tones to the jewels. Another line consists of one-of-a-kind pieces that add the charm of vintage finds to the designers’ tougher aesthetics. To shop the Joomi Lim collection,
Joomi – Years ago, I designed jewelry as a hobby for myself and for friends while going to college. One day, one of the buyers from a very established store asked where I bought my earrings. Next thing, I had my first order.
Mix our spike jewelry with vintage rhinestone jewels or something girly like fine jewelry or pearls. This gives a ‘nice & naughty’ look – very fun.
Joomi – One of my biggest style icons is Kate Moss. I would die to see Ms. Moss inJoomi Lim jewelry.
Both but we get more from Fashion Blogs.
Joomi – Definitely TEA!! I am having a cup now.
