"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 jewelry began to evolve in a stage of experimentation, at which time he began making jewelry as one off pieces. After being introduced to a select number of stylists and editors, he was commissioned to create jewelry for the runways of Marchesa, Joseph Altuzarra, and Proenza Schouler. He formally launched his collection in spring summer 2008.
Eddie’s philosophy in jewelry 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 jewelry, sculpture, and object.
Launched in 2008, the Eddie Borgo collection has established itself as an American luxury brand.
The collection is a study in traditions; Americana, the history of rock and roll, and the heritage of New York City. Designer Eddie Borgo brings new energy and a modern point of view to these established themes, fusing high end and street in every piece he creates.
The collection is now sold at over 200 retailers worldwide and stocked at luxury boutiques in Toronto, London, Paris, Milan, Moscow, Istanbul, Dubai, Riyadh, Seoul, Taiwan, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Melbourne. It is available online through Net-a-Porter.
In 2010 Eddie Borgo was awarded runner up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Eddie Borgo won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design and was a co-recipient of the first ever CFDA/Vogue Tiffany & Co. Development Grant.
