Goro Jewelry & Accessories – I was stylespotting at Abbot Kinney Blvd’s First Friday event when Jarrett’s neckwear literally stopped me in my tracks. He shared Goro’s history with me, a Tokyo-based jewelry designer with a waiting list longer than the hordes of people lined up outside his store daily, trying to score his exclusive handmade pieces. How did Jarrett score not one, but two pieces? The Nike Design Director knows someone who knows someone, naturally. He says John Mayer has also been privy to Goro pieces, but that the designer (with Native American influences, it seems) is still pretty hush hush in the U.S. Jarrett, thank you for sharing and for reinforcing my tag line that style has a story.
For the record, I also dig how he wears it. While I shot Jarrett’s look, his wife shot my shoes which bemused me (can I see?). You can follow Jarrett on his trend scouting travels at JarrettsBlog.com. Fun to talk to you two in Venice and domo arigato for the impromptu sidewalk photo op!
