Designer, artist and entrepreneur Robert Lee Morris is nothing short of a legend in the jewelry business. His stunning namesake collection, launched in 1971, is one that's instantly recognizable to anyone who has even the slightest interest in jewelry - pieces are bold and sometimes architectural, yet sensual, often deriving inspiration from organic forms. I'm particularly obsessed with the bold cuffs, which sit perfectly on the wrist despite their often striking size.
Last week, I had the pleasure of going Behind The Seams and in the studio with Robert in the Style Coalition TV episode below. In addition to a peek at his current collection, archives and workroom, we chatted about the art of designer collaborations (having worked with legends like Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, Robert knows a bit on the matter). His advice is worth a listen for any young designer.
Shop the Robert Lee Morris collection at Bergdorf Goodman, Kirna Zabête, or at Morris’ Soho store at 400 West Broadway.
