MEET THE DESIGNERS BEHIND THE COLLECTIONS
Yves Spinelli was born in Honolulu, the son of Italian hairstylists. His introduction to the fashion world came through his father Antoine Spinelli, who spent time between Hawaii and New York City working alongside renowned hairstylists Paul Mitchell, Garren Defazio and Roger Thompson in the 70’s and 80’s.
In a marketplace of ornate and figurative jewelry Yves yearned for something clean and architectural. He created a set of linked rings of different thicknesses which could be worn a number of ways – spread across three fingers, or stacked on one. From this first set he immediately began taking private orders.
Spinelli Kilcollin launched their first group of interconnected Galaxy Rings at Maxfield, and began incorporating diamonds into their collection. In 2012 they made a custom linked ring for Ikram Goldman with 5 carats of diamonds, and immediately garnered national press and the attention of luxury retailers including Barneys.
Spinelli Kilcollin continues to develop their voice by combining a contemporary minimalist aesthetic with intricate craftsmanship and materials, aspiring to become a dominant voice in the luxury market.
