Vogue Ileana Makri
Jewelry designer Ileana Makri is joining Reinstein Ross as Creative Director, a new role at the fine jewelry brand.
Makri would seem an inspired choice for Reinstein Ross, whose work tends to be substantial and chunky. She thinks like a sculptor, and her pieces have a satisfying three-dimensionality that jibes with her new employer’s aesthetic. Just as important: Makri has a long list of bestsellers. Her colorful evil eye pendants and snake rings are grails for jewelry lovers, identifiably hers and more valuable for being so. The pieces she designed for The Row circa 2012 (Ashley Olsen is a Makri collector) instantly sold out.
