CALIFORNIA GIRLS: MARA CARRIZO SCALISE

CALIFORNIA GIRLS: MARA CARRIZO SCALISE

This jewelry designer is not only a nearest and dearest of our creative directors, Jenny and Toni, but LA transplant, Mara Carrizo Scalise has that enviable style and attitude that is equal parts rock ’n roll mixed with boho queen. She was born in Buenos Aires and became captivated with fashion thanks to her mom’s collection of vintage clothes and the burgeoning punk scene at the time.

When it comes to jewelry, she makes the type of pieces you put on and wear forever (FYI: the number one piece of jewelry in our office is currently her RAIN NECKLACE). Elegant, handcrafted, laid back and with a cool-girl edge that we can’t get enough of. Here we picked her brain on everything from good causes to fashion finds.

Mara has an incredible style, substance and lust for life that is as infectious and alluring as HER JEWELRY. She’s also the one that hooked us up with KIRSTY HUME years ago and that friendship spawned our gorgeous SPRING COLLAB.
