GODDOLLARS * DESIGN

Interview by Veronica Chanel GD: We are Loren Granic & Gregori Nuñez and we are Goddollars. VC: How long have you been designing jewelry together? GD: About a year. VC: How did you come up with your name Goddollars? GD: Its what’s really important to you, it’s more of a feeling we feel “Goddollars”. We didn’t sit down and come up with the name it came to us at the same time, because we said it at the same time. VC: How would you describe your designs to someone whom has never seen them? GD: We have heard a lot of things I’ve heard visceral, savage, ferocious, raw but really its just an expression of devotion, it shows both religion and money. VC: What inspires each new piece? GD: That’s a difficult question to answer because we are so bombarded with culture. We are more inspired with people directly around me you know there are a few shining stars in LA that we know and it’s those kinds of people that really carry themselves and really apply themselves to what they are doing and its those kinds of people that inspire us. Tristan Tzara, Hugo Ball, those kinds of people but made modern in all of our friends. VC: Do you have any fashion icons? GD: We believe a lot of fashion is ridiculous. The fact that a lot of it doesn’t take it self seriously is beautiful, fashion shouldn’t be taken seriously I mean it hurts when it does. I have a few icons who I think are amazing but why should

We have a few icons who I think are amazing but why should we name them they are just speaking on a different level. We aspire to them and to name them would be to like sacrilegious in away. VC: How would you describe your personal style? GD: Our personal style hurts mainly, its bringing together hedonism and education, both smarts and party together as one. VC: Where do you see yourselves in seven years? GD: On the top of the world! Maybe Mount Kilimanjaro. VC: Where can people buy your pieces? GD: This is actually the first collection we have ever done, we do a lot of different things and we did this line for us and our friends to wear and we didn’t expect to get the kind of feed back that we have and we were kind of thrust onto actually shopping the line around. We’ve been talking to people in NY and LA we are just starting to shop out or line and are getting really good response so far. We didn’t mean to start a line this is Goddollars!... its more of our feeling, next we will be moving on to more ambitious things such as parties I don’t know how much longer we will be doing jewelry. VC: How do you guys work on the designs together? GD: We actually hate each other. It’s a hate love relationship, we don’t love it each other very much but we hate each other very much.
