Eddie Borgo’s Island Escape



Eddie Borgo spent his last vacation island-hopping in the Aegean, and it shows. For his pre-fall collection, the designer recast his signature graphic shapes in opalescent hues and matte finishes that seem weathered by the sun, wind, and water. All three shapes come together in Estate—a mosaic of a necklace in pyrite cubes, hand-cut opal glass cones, and agate pyramids set in matte silver and gold plate. Meanwhile, Borgo has also been edging into fine jewelry, and a trio of supple mini-cone bracelets set with crystals offer a seductive hint as to where the designer might be headed next.
