DL and Co
It was born of the desire to bring objects of opulence and beauty to those who yearn for the uncommon and the exquisite. Disappointed with the meager, condescending offerings of the beauty marketplace, they decided to take matters into their own discerning hands; they decided to take a leap of faith, hoping there were others like themselves who longed to bring the unique, the rare and the unusual into their lives. Happily, their instincts have proven them to be correct in this particular case, as they now find themselves to be very busy. Every item they design is intended to unfold like a love letter, each painstaking detail revealing a procession of small delights. Like the purveyors of curious goods in previous ages, every item they create is intended to stir and enthrall each and every one of the senses, from the sleek feel of the carefully-selected silk ribbons to the intoxicating atmospheres of the handmade fragrances. Their love of rare botanica, arcane curiosities and long-forgotten sensations compel them to offer these modern heirlooms in this age of aesthetic tedium and mass production; they wish to provide an alternative for those who find the banality of todays products to be an insult to their intelligence, dignity and good taste.
Inspired by shapes and symbols associated with adornment, modern art and architecture, Eddie Borgo creates collections that challenge our ideas of classicism and luxury. Eddie Borgo began his exploration of adornment at university, establishing his pioneering point of view at that time. His fascination with the ideas attached to symbolism in jewellery began to evolve in a stage of experimentation, at which time he began making jewellery as one off pieces. After being introduced to a select number of stylists and editors, he was commissioned to create jewellery for the runways of Marchesa, Joseph Altuzarra, and Proenza Schouler. He formally launched his collection in spring summer 2008. Eddies philosophy in jewellery comes from his attraction to the timelessness in modern sculpture and shape, and an obsession with capturing this spirit in his work. As his collections evolve, so does his unique ability to constantly redefine our ideas of modernity in jewellery, sculpture, and object. The collection is a study in traditions: Americana, the history of rock and roll, and the heritage of New York City. The collection is now sold at over 200 retailers worldwide and stocked at luxury boutiques in Toronto, London, Paris, Milan, Moscow, Istanbul, Dubai, Riyadh, Seoul, Taiwan, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Melbourne. It is available online through Net-a-Porter. In 2010 Eddie Borgo was awarded runner up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Eddie Borgo won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design and was a co-recipient of the first ever CFDA/Vogue Tiffany & Co. Development Grant. Headquartered in New York City, the Eddie Borgo studio houses the design, sales, press, product development, production, finance, logistics, operations and repairs departments. Eddie Borgo is a limited liability company registered in the state of New York.

When he was only sixteen years old, Louis Vuitton made a decision that would not only change his own life but the lives of his sons and future generations: he would become a trunk-master. Both a family residence and the cradle of the company, the Asnières site has been the symbol of the Vuitton family's personal and commercial success since 1859. In 1886, Georges Vuitton revolutionized luggage locks with an ingenious closing system that turned travel trunks into real treasure chests. The brand asked six designers to create original pieces to celebrate the iconic canvas that was created over a century ago: the Monogram.
