Robert’s World

19th September, 2012
One recent afternoon, just before Fashion Week, Jamie Beck and I paid a visit to the studio of Robert Lee MorrisRecognized as a leader in the art jewelry movement, Robert has been creating wearable sculptures since the 1970’s. He has collaborated with designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Kansai YamamotoCalvin Klein, Donna Karan, Geoffrey Beene, Michael Kors, and even the OlsensElizabeth and James line; his work has been featured in more than 50 issues of Vogue. His studio tells an awe-inspiring story of his life as an artist, and we couldn’t help but spend hours combing through its workroom and archives. It was like taking a master class covering the last 40 years of fashion history.As we gleefully dug through drawer after drawer of his nature-inspired jewels, Robert patiently talked us through each piece’s history and process of creation. He remembers everything, and we were spellbound.Happily, I had invited my beautiful friend Taylor along, to model for Jamie and me. We wanted to make our own ode to this artist, and her lean lines and exotic look seemed ideally aligned with his brutally beautiful oeuvre. After hungrily testing out everything in sight, I draped Taylor in just a few favorites (it was terribly hard to choose!), and we headed up to the top floor to find her warrior within… Story continued HERE!
