“It’s all metal—it feels like one big piece of jewelry,” jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth tells Style.com of her 57 Walker Street pop-up store, which opens today. The L.A.-based designer teamed up with architect Marc Fornes to transform the 1,800-square-foot BOFFO Building Fashion space, previously home to Nicola’s by Nicola Formichetti , into a glimmering and lavish retail shop to showcase her latest designs. The space is complete with golden latticework etched with stars from the ceiling to the floor and a living wall. “I thought it would be funny to mix something organic with something very modern,” Neuwirth explains.
She also planted moss and branches next to her new opal and sapphire creations, along with her signature long gold chain offerings. “A lot of them are pieces that people haven’t seen yet because I’m always creating one-of-a-kind things,” says Neuwirth, whose work is a favorite among the likes of Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and Iman. The store opens today and remains open for two weeks.
