The LARUICCI F/W ‘21 ‘Heart and Stars’ Second Skin collection, according to designer Lauren Ruicci, is perfect for making your big appearance in Aspen & Co : “Blending a hazy fog of Berlin nightclubs, LA house parties, Paris runways, and Tokyo dive bars – LARUICCI is timeless. This ready-to-wear line is an extension of the offbeat world of LARUICCI. Inspired by club culture and classic outfits, the collection blends technical tailoring techniques and draped shapes. Expressive luxury while staying underground, LARUICCI ready-to-wear is a party 24/7, and the designs aim to unleash the most brave version of yourself.” Make-up from the motifs was in the hands of Anna SADAMORI c/o SHOTVIEW Artists Management. Photos were shot by Yan Wasiuchnik with styling by Shinya Kuraoka.
LARUICCI is a Megawatt Jewelry collection launched in 2009. All production is based in NYC and designed by Lauren Ruicci who refined her lifelong love of embellishment and adornment during the years she spent in Italy, where she studied Fashion Design and Art History at Accademia Italiana. She later received her Masters degree in Fashion Design from Polimoda in Florence.
Upon her return to New York, Lauren began assisting Italian Vogue contributing editor & legendary stylist Patti Wilson. This exposure inspired Lauren to create her own collection of fasten-your-seatbelt statement jewelry under the name LARUICCI, comprised of tempting and glamorous necklaces, extravagant rings, and “try me if you dare” earrings.
For ten years, Laruicci has been a part of countless projects featuring artists including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna as well as fashion legends such as Christie Brinkley and Pat Cleveland. Laruicci has been featured in top national and international publications including Vogue, Glamour, WWD, L’Officiel, Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Allure, Nylon, New York Times, Numero, and Teen Vogue.
Laruicci Megawatt Jewelry is all handmade in our New York City studio. The brand’s design philosophy combines high fashion accessories with a playful punk edge where nothing is off limits. Our designs aim to unleash the most brave version of yourself. GoSee : laruicci.com
