Hard Rock Show + Tell: Basile and Pape

“Like a rock” are the first three words the come to mind when I think about jewelry line Basile & Pape, the brainchild of the husband and wife design duo Robin Basile and John Pape. Both veterans of the fashion industry, they worked as editors, photographers and stylists until 2009 when they formed Basile & Pape. They sought out to create a bold line of statement jewelry as a result of being unfulfilled by the predominately small and demure accessories dominating the market. They said, “We design with editors, stylists, and fashion-forward consumers in mind. We design big, substantial pieces that can be seen from afar and worshiped up close.” Untamed and unrestrained, each piece is individually handcrafted of sterling silver adorned with decadent, out of this world geological formations.

Fleet Ilya

Meet Fleet Ilya, the leather fashion and bondage accessory label from the London-based husband-and-wife team Ilya Fleet and Resha Sharma. Their fierce, unconventional creations are the perfect fusion of hardcore and chic. I am particularly attracted to this large cage bag. Buy at Reborn and see more Fleet Ilya at Opening Ceremony.
