NEW START

A SKETCH OF A REVERSIBLE CHOKER MADE WITH CABOCHON GEMSTONES.

DESIGNER MARINA B IN THE HEYDAY OF HER BRAND CIRCA EARLY 1980’S.

of which adds to the brand: “In New York, I get inspired by these energetic American women who really set the tone in jewelry trends, then in Bangkok, where I source gems, I soak up inspiration from the Orient, and Italy, where the craftsmen create.” Bedarida has also created a new, less corporate, by-appointment studio in a townhouse on East 67th right off of Fifth Avenue. The salon is evocative of Marina B.’s heyday – the 1980’s – with décor inspired by Gae Aulenti, who designed her shops in Geneva among other locales. As new guardian of this legendary name, Bedarida is excited to be back in Vegas and amongst his peers in the industry to unveil and give birth to a high-end fine jewelry line that also can address the need for everyday jewelry. The capsule is based on classic designs from the Seventies and Eighties, and includes the Marmore, a high-jewelry choker and earrings, and Luna, a limited-edition smaller choker and bracelet with an attainable price-point. You couldn’t pick a better spot than Las Vegas to celebrate the brand’s 40th, as the desert oasis is a place where dreams come true. And for Guy Bedarida, owning Marina B. which he admired for years, is living the dream. 26
