TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF WHERE YOUR FROM YOUR BACKGROUND AND WHERE YOUR BASED NOW:

I’M ORIGINALLY FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN BUT AFTER STUDYING IN ITALY THE CALL OF NEW YORK CITY WAS TOO LOUD TO IGNORE SO I CAME HERE TO WORK AND START MY OWN LINE. I WAS AN ASSISTANT FOR PATTI WILSON - WHICH HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN A MAJOR INFLUENCE EVER SINCE!


TELL US ABOUT YOUR BEAUTIFUL WORK:


LARUICCI IS THE CULMINATION OF MY LIFELONG LOVE OF EMBELLISHMENT PASSED ON TO ME FROM THE INCREDIBLE WOMEN IN MY LIFE, SPECIFICALLY MY GRANDMOTHER. I WORK WITH MY INCREDIBLE TEAM OF ARTISTS AND INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS TO KEEP OUR DREAM OF INDIVIDUAL EXPRESSION ALIVE.


CAN YOU SHARE YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS AND PHILOSOPHY:


I WANT FOR MY DESIGNS TO SPEAK TO THE GUT OF YOU AND MAKE YOU FEEL INVINCIBLE. I DESCRIBE THE STUDIO PROCESS AS BEING A SPACESHIP JOYRIDE TRAVELING THROUGH TIME AND CREATIVE SPACE STOPPING TO ABSORB THE MILLIONS OF INSPIRATIONS ALONG THE WAY. LARUICCI REFERENCES PUNK CULTURE AND ICONOGRAPHY AS A NOD TO OUR REFUSAL TO CONFORM. I KNOW STATEMENT JEWELRY ISN’T FOR EVERYONE BUT COME ON, LIVE A LITTLE!

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM:


EVERYWHERE, HONESTLY! I LOVE STRONG AND INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE LIKE DOLLY PARTON & DAVID BOWIE. I LISTEN TO MUSIC PRETTY MUCH AS LOG AS I’M CONSCIOUS AND THAT’S ALWAYS A WELL OF INSPIRATION. COUNTER-CULTURAL MOVEMENTS, NIGHT LIFE CELEBRITY, THE WILD AND FREE OUTLAW - THESE ARE ALL EQUALLY LARUICCI TO ME.
