The Eliasson of Jewelry Design
Eddie Borgo’s geometric jewelry designs have always reminded me of the work of one of my favorite artists, Olafur Eliasson. For Spring 2012 Visionaire co-founder, Cecelia Dean, was the perfect choice to model a collection that epitomizes the intersection of art and fashion; Borgo cited the work of Robert Mapplethorpe as a primary source of inspiration during his design process. The spring campaign video that launched in early February on EddieBorgo.com and on Style.com brought back such fond memories from the Eliasson exhibition in 2008 at MoMA entitled Take Your Time. Eliasson uses severe shapes and colors to engage and captivate the viewer. Borgo’s short film used these techniques to produce an equally beautiful and mesmerizing effect.
