EDDIE BORGO’S TAKE ON TIFFANY
Under the creative direction of Francesca Amfitheatrof, Tiffany & Co. has reached new heights producing one-of-a-kind masterpieces. They embrace iconic Tiffany signatures and constantly seek unique, fresh ideas to create beautiful collections. As a result, Tiffany & Co. appoints Eddie Borgo as the recipient of the first CFDA/Vogue Tiffany & Co. Development Grant. He was selected to create an exclusive fine jewellery capsule collection for the company.
The capsule collection was dedicated to Tiffany & Co.’s recent partnership with Whitney Museum. Awarded the opportunity to work with Tiffany artisans, Eddie Borgo took inspiration from the eclectic style of the founder of the museum, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Metalsmith Eddie Borgo creates a seven piece collection that features his signature geometric classicism and architecturally graphic style, under the supervision of Amfitheatrof. The collection comes in 18k gold embellished with freshwater cultured pearls.
Early this month, Tiffany & Co. unveils the special Tiffany x Eddie Borgo collection at a cocktail event at its Fifth Avenue, New York flagship, where it is exclusively sold. Alternatively, head to their site on www.tiffany.com.
