All Eyes On the Bearded Wonder Jewelry Maker Philip Crangi

by Accidental Bear

This CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award for Best Designer Award winner and craftsman approaches his growing business like an artisan, but still manages to bring himself to larger and larger markets. Every one of his lines including Philip Crangi Jewelry and Giles & Brother employs unusual materials, ancient metalwork techniques, a solid grasp of history, and a scenester’s understanding of humor and shock. After recent projects like collaborations with Boy by Band of Outsiders and just about every other truly cool designer at New York Fashion Week, he’s  opened his first “brick and mortar” shop, The Crangi Family Project, in Meatpacking District. How does he find the time?
