Behind MESSY LOVE
We’re starting off this year with love on our minds!
Messy Love celebrates the diversity of how we show and feel love.
LOVE IS MESSY, AND WE LOVE IT!
A closer look at the behind the scenes
Designed and assembled in our Brooklyn studio by our tiny - but mighty - team, these high-end pieces feel as good as they look. We’ve chosen elevated materials: 18k gold plated brass, acrylic, cubic zirconia. Fun details: enamel highlighted with red, pink, black & white, as well as touches of our signature iridescence! Plus themes both sweet and subversive: of course we’ve got hearts, but who doesn't love a good baseball bat for Valentines Day?! The collection is as multifaceted as love itself!
Connecting the dots...
The inspo behind the pieces comes from the hot mess and intimate layers of luv nd s3x. Exploring all its facets, not just the healthy “goal” relationships - that are never as easy or neat as they appear from the outside anyway - but all the fleeting moments, wet kisses, missed connections. The desire, lust, heartbreak and anguish.
Forgetting your name, forgetting you exist. Just living in a kiss, stuck in that one exquisite moment.
The fantasy… The RELEASE!
We wanted to take the beauty of that feeling and turn it into something you can touch with your hand and adorn yourself with. Celebrate the messiness within you!
Love is love...
Messy Love is not just about lovers, it’s about what u feel for friends, family, even self-love and ur relationship with ur pets!
