When M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza first debuted in 2007, demand was so high that the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman sold out of its stock nine times in just one month. Laurenza combines brightly colored enamel and precious gems to design three-dimensional, geometric patterns that are instantly recognizable for their intricacy and modernized antique look. Laurenza’s sophisticated style is largely informed by his world travels, during which he often seeks out high-quality gemstones as well as craftsmanship pointers from traditionally skilled artisans. Windmill-shaped earrings, chunky amethyst pendant necklaces, rhodium-plated hexagon rings, and bangle bracelets: These and many more distinctive designs have made Laurenza a favorite jewelry designer among A-list celebs such as Blake Lively and Lady Gaga. The year 2011 marked the debut of M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza’s line of clutch handbags, including the jeweled “Gold Crest” bags and minaudieres and the leather and snakeskin Purple Crest collection. Expect each piece in the M.C.L. collection to have instant wow factor.
