In the decade since he debuted his eponymous accessories label, Eddie Borgo has earned a Council of Fashion Designers of America Award, collaborated on a capsule collection with Tiffany & Co., and amassed a loyal following of stylists and fashion editors with his modern, structural costume jewelry and handbags. The designer relaunched his brand earlier this year, with new West Coast partners, and plans to introduce fine-jewelry and home ranges in 2019. Freshly bicoastal, Borgo now divides his time between New York City and his new bungalow in the Los Feliz Oaks. eddieborgo.com.
