Living in New York means opening the door to the extraordinary: extraordinary buildings, extraordinary clothing, extraordinary jobs, extraordinary people… and once in a while an extraordinary party. When the champagne invite arrived in the mail to Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Gala, in celebration of the jazz age collection they created for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, I could have died from excitement. With great artistic admiration for Baz (and you can guess how I feel about the Great Gatsby) we stood in a room surrounded by swinging girls in feathers, old standards dancing through the air, and sparkling diamonds that seemed to reflect every bubble of champagne. It was a night in New York to remember, putting a big bow on the center of Manhattan…
Have a beautiful weekend!

How the girls came to life on set as we captured Tiffany & Co’s 1837 Collection in RUBEDO metal in downtown Manhattan and bathed in golden light….
Inside the treasure trove that is Tiffany & Co’s 1837 Collection in RUBEDO metal
Tiffany & Co. + Cinemagraphs
Last night at Tiffany & Co. we unveiled a series of Cinemagraphs made to capture the warm beauty of the Tiffany 1837 Collection in RUBEDO metal. I hope you have the opportunity to see our collaboration on display at Tiffany & Co.’s Fifth Avenue flagship store on Saturday from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m!
In honor of its 175th anniversary, Tiffany & Co. launches RUBEDO, a new jeweler’s metal that radiates with the warm tones of first morning light.
As one of my greatest honors and quite literally a dream come true, Tiffany & Co. commissioned a series of Cinemagraphs unveiling today in the flagship store on New York’s 5th avenue for this unbelievably beautiful new collection. The Tiffany 1837 RUBEDO metal is the first such creation in Tiffany’s history to marry the richness of gold, the brilliance of silver and the warmth of copper which was a pleasure to bring to life in our Cinemagraphic way. The quietness of sunlight, the warm shine of a new metal, and a start of a new day with RUBEDO.
Here are handful of photographs from our moment together inspired by peace and beauty while bathed in quiet light…
What’s in a name? RUBEDO, in the medieval philosophy of alchemy, was the title of the very highest achievement, when in matter and spirit fused to create something of rare beauty.
Don’t you wonder… what’s in the little blue box?
