“The Christina Caruso client is bold, sophisticated, unapologetic, and is not afraid to walk into the room wearing a 3-inch hoop and a red lip,” says accessory design maven Christina Caruso. When just a fresh graduate from the prestigious Parsons School of Design in 2000, Caruso’s signature creations were sported by Sarah Jessica Parker in the legendary series Sex and the City, which opened doors to partnerships with renowned fashion houses like Henri Bendel, Fred Segal and Patricia Field. After lending years of design expertise to iconic brands like Isaac Mizrahi, Liz Claiborne, Banana Republic, Elizabeth Kennedy, and Cuyana, Caruso’s namesake collection was revived in fall 2021 with an all-new selection of accessories that embody a daring, imaginative aesthetic.
Available now on the East End at Wyld Blue in Montauk, Christina Caruso’s newest collection showcases sculptural and organic design, expertly crafted by New York City-based artisans. Conceptualized as “wearable art, fashion jewelry” each piece is created with recycled brass dipped in 14K gold. Caruso’s hand sketches were brought to life to create the collection, including a striking gold choker that evokes avant-garde elegance, a playful tassel necklace that can be styled as hip jewelry or a mask chain, chunky cuff bracelets perfect for layering, and tufted hoop earrings oozing with nostalgia for the bold styles of the ’80s. The eye-catching bezel-set shell earring features a natural capiz shell with an iridescent finish, a wearable ode to the sea that can be sported across the Hamptons this summer.
Fiercely committed to sustainability, each Christina Caruso piece is boxed in minimal waste packaging, meant to be as collectible and beautiful as the jewelry itself. christinacaruso.com
