What’s catching the Hoorsenbuhs duo’s eyes this holiday
When jewelry designer Robert Keith—founder, creative chief and designer of cult line Hoorsenbuhs—needs something, his first instinct is to figure out how to make it. “You get these creative bursts, they explode in your mind,” explains the former photographer, who imagined the label’s signature tri-link mark in 2005, now seen on everything from weighty unisex geometric rings to cashmere blankets and T-shirts. While based in a studio on Santa Monica’s Main Street, Keith and his business partner, Hoorsenbuhs brand director Kether Parker, debuted their gallery in New York in late 2016. Now Keith and Parker have moved to the other side of Main to install Hoorsenbuhs’ ever-expanding offerings, including an eyewear collection, in a new atelier and 5,000-square-foot boutique. “We’re on the sunny side of the street now,” says Parker. “No pun intended,” quips Keith. Here’s what’s catching the Hoorsenbuhs duo’s eyes this holiday season. 2217 Main St., Santa Monica, 888-692-2997; hoorsenbuhs.com.
