They are dull! Most accessory labels look the same as the next and the distinction between brands is barely noticeable. It drives me crazy. Introduced to Dandi Maestre by a good friend at Magnolia Boutique’s fall preview party, I was instantly blown away by the creativity and quality of the designs.
The Colombian-born Toronto designer uses natural materials like shells, coral, antlers, bones and horns. Animal components are sourced from taxidermies across the globe, forming artistic yet wearable masterpieces.
Not for the faint-of-heart, a large antler necklace or chunky cuff made from bone will be a conversation piece. Look for stores in Canada and the United States online at www.dandimaestre.com.
