Serious radness has officially arrived in the form of RIFLE + R A D F O R D, designer Melanie RR Edwards homage to the spirit of the Southwest with the soul of a Brooklyn-phile now on display at our Chelsea Market pop-up via Austin. Part lifestyle brand and part design collective, R+R has been developing the brand of "handmade heritage" for several years, creating a collection of rich and brilliant jewelry inspired by nature with necklaces, earrings and cuffs using citrine, turquoise, malachite and other semi-precious gemstones in styles and settings that are both rough rock and refined. Debuting at the pop-up are 3 noteworthy initiatives from some of R+R's favorite friends and design buddies: handcrafted knits, leather envelope clutches and a meticulously curated collection of vintage Americana housewares and home goods.
