Frank Ocean launches Homer, an independent luxury company
Frank Ocean has embarked on luxury.
On Friday, the Grammy-winning artist unveiled Homer’s debut collection, his new independent business that features a mix of fine and high-end jewelry as well as printed silk scarves, all inspired by ‘obsessions of the world’. ‘childhood’ of Ocean and ‘heritage as a fantasy’.
The jewelry was designed by the Homer team in New York and handcrafted in Italy using 18k gold, recycled sterling silver, hand painted enamel and diamonds created in the Homer’s state-of-the-art laboratory in the United States.
“Hand on my heart, this project got my mind and my imagination moving throughout it all,” Ocean wrote of Homer on Instagram. “Now all my work is dedicated to my family. All. My hope is to do things that last, that are hard to destroy, set it in stone. I am so happy for everyone involved and I admire you and I am proud of you… It’s been three years in the making and there is so much, so much that I am delighted to share with all of you strangers.
Items from the first drop will be exclusively available at the Homer jewelry store, located at 70-74 Bowery, New York, New York.
Although walk-in appointments may be available, customers can plan their visit in advance at www.homer.com. The store will officially launch on August 9 and will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET on Saturday.
