On Wednesday, March 27th, 2019, Aubade had the pleasure of hosting the designers behind fine jewelry brands Eva Fehren and Spinelli Kilcollin at its flagship store opening. After having been closed for 9 months to work on its expansion and renovation, Aubade launched its store reopening with an event and trunk show featuring both designers.
Eva Fehren, a NY based fine jewelry brand, was founded by designer and artist Eva Zuckerman, who draws inspiration from New York’s geometric urban patterns and architectural elements. Spinelli Kilcollin, on the other hand, is an LA based fine jewelry brand founded by designer Yves Spinelli. In a marketplace of ornate and figurative jewelry Yves yearned for something clean and architectural, so he created a set of linked rings of different thicknesses which could be worn a number of ways – spread across three fingers, or stacked on one.
Due to the similar aesthetic of both brands and the long standing friendship between the designers, Aubade felt it was the perfect opportunity to host both designers for a joint trunk show. It also happened that both brands shared the same clients at Aubade, so it was a chance for these clients to meet and interact with both designers at the same time.
During the opening event and trunk show, clients were able to preview the new space and explore the facelift that Aubade underwent. It also gave them a chance to customize their own pieces, with many clients building their own Spinelli Kilcollin rings with the help and styling of Yves Spinelli himself.
Event planner Bibi Hayat, who Aubade has continuously commissioned for its numerous events, decked out the shop floor with foral arrangements, candles, and an over the top dessert stand. Fauchon provided a selection of refreshments and desserts during the event.
