"My collection is really a continuous study in geometric classicism; architectural and graphic shapes are always something I have been attracted to. I am most inspired by Modern Art. My favorite artists include Tony Smith, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, and Richard Serra. I appreciate Art as structure."
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.
Eddie’s 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.
