/LLER COLLECTION is based in Brooklyn and run by chief creative officer and co-founder Katie deGuzman. Katie graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 2002, where she studied furniture design.After graduating, she progressed into the jewelry industry designing for Alexis Bittar, Justin Giunta for Subversive Jewelry, and more, and then founded K/LLER in 2010 with Michael Miller.
K/LLER COLLECTION revolves around an interest in natural forms, architecture, alchemy, androgyny, and juxtaposition. The collection—an amalgam of oxidized, rough-hewn metals delicately cast over skeletal organicmaterial—releases an unapologetic, gutsy rebel yell. Eolithic materials—like horn, distressed leather, crystals, porcupine quills, cactus, and feathers—fuse deconstruction and sculpture, decay and renewal, androgyny andfemininity, sophistication, and bohemia. Gritty yet sleek, each piece is timeless.
