The Havana Collection
As with so many things in fashion, what was once old can be transformed by a fresh perspective. Havana is in the midst of such a renaissance, emerging from a decades-long slumber to become a luxurious travel destination for the modern age.
Havana knows its best angles, having been in vogue many times before. Most recently, it was a playground for Hollywood stars of the 1930s and ‘40s. I cannot blame them for being entranced. A mere 228 miles from Miami, Havana feels like another world altogether and wandering the streets transports you to another time.
Several other times, in fact. Havana’s symphonic culture has been composed over 500 years from Moorish, Spanish, Italian, Greek, British and French influences. Its architectural wonders are just as diverse—baroque, deco and modernist structures sit side by side, finding kinship through the city’s trademark bursts of color. Last but not least, it is the birthplace of the daiquiri, which is reason enough to visit.
This collection pays homage to Havana’s otherworldliness—each piece infused with its diverse and refined history—drawing heavily upon the city’s luscious color palette and its past life as Hollywood’s playground.
Each piece is fit for a star—glamorous and bold, the kind of statement jewelry Ava Gardner would have worn when visiting the city. Whether you take a trip to Havana or not, I hope you find a piece in this collection that transports you to a place that inspires you.
