Cameo PR, a New-York based boutique public-relations agency specializing in emerging accessories designers and brands, has retained three new clients, jewelry designers Katrina LaPenne and Erin Hakansson and footwear label Jon Josef.
Inspired by nature’s magnificence, ancient artifacts and exotic decorative objects, metalsmith Katrina LaPenne has developed a series of collections including detailed jewels that range from everyday styles like Scaled Serpents and Ornately Etched Victorian Pendants to statement-making pieces like Brushed Egyptian Hoops and Oversized Talons. Katrina also produces an Old World Diamonds collection for which each pendant, ring and earring is fabricated by hand, surrounding each individual stone in its own custom 14K Gold setting.
San Francisco based Erin Hakansson developed her own sense of style in London post-college, as she focused on classic, quality pieces of fashion that she could make her own with modern twists. Gaining inspiration from travels that include Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Stockholm, and her current favorite, Florence, Erin focuses on creating pieces that accentuate and highlight a woman’s personal style, with an eye on individuality, elegance and simplicity.
In pursuit of his latest collection, Spanish footwear designer J.J. Egido’s traveled to Italy to source supple leathers and skins, to India where he expanded his collection of luxe materials and partnered with local artisans, and Spain. The result is a multidimensional collection of sandals, pumps, boots and flats at accessible price points that marry fashion-forward styles with incredible comfort.
