After showing his pre-fall ’13 collection in Paris, New York-based jewelry designer Eddie Borgo jetted down to Brazil to source semiprecious stones, do a photo shoot, get a little inspiration, and soak up some sunshine. Borgo sent us back a few snaps from his Brazilian adventure. Read all about it, below.
Once I landed in Rio (see the view from the plane, above left), I headed to my hotel, which overlooked Ipanema Beach. After coming from Paris (where the temperature was near freezing), I was excited to see that the weather report was a sunny 91 degrees!
When I woke up on my first day, I went to Tijuca National Park and took a wonderful hike above the city of Paineiras. The views of Rio are indescribable.
I visited the H.Stern workshop and spent an afternoon looking through their unbelievable archives. It was so inspiring to see such unique craftsmanship and history. I then had lunch and incredible conversation with Costanza Pascolato, editor at large at Vogue Brazil. Afterward, I took a shopping tour of NK, a great luxury boutique in Rio owned by Natalie Klein.

Katie Holmes’ third campaign for H.Stern is out and she’s looking smoldering. The actress stripped down for the jewelry ads, so the images are mostly just sun-kissed skin and sparkling jewels. [Telegraph]
In celebration of Meryl Streep’s latest movie, The Iron Lady, photographer Brigitte Lacombe has released a series of behind-the-scenes images she’s taken of Streep during their 31-year friendship. Lacombe sat down with Nowness to talk about her friendship with one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. [Nowness]
H.Stern’s collaborations with architects and other designers over the years have been a real success story for the jewelry company, from the Campana brothers’ pieces to Diane von Furstenberg’s line with the brand. For Fall, they’re partnering with Oscar Niemeyer, Brazil’s most renowned architect, the man behind the plan of Brasilia, the Brazilian capital, and the U.N. headquarters in New York. H.Stern designers took inspiration from Niemeyer’s drawings to create the clean lines of the new collection—the simple landscape (bottom) became my favorite piece, a pair of zigzag diamond earrings in 18K white gold (top). They snake over the entire ear for an unexpected (and, admittedly, pricey) glamour.
The Oscar Niemeyer collection hits stores this Fall. For more information, visit www.hstern.net.
