For Mother’s Day 05.13.18, Paper Magazine covered a story we shot highlighting Alexis Jae and her mother Jennice. Both women are native New Yorkers and artists — Alexis is an up-and-coming singer / model, and Jennice is a fashion designer. They are bold + fearless in their presentation. It was an honor to shoot them in BOND for this feature.

BOND creates original content. Beginning in September 2017, the inception of BOND Studios has allowed us to bring all visual production in-house. Collaborative projects like this one are an opportunity to work with friends and local artists or designers we admire. Dana pulled certain key pieces from LUAR and The Baroness, the legendary NYC domme designer “of elegant, provocative latex fashions.” Make-up artist Natalia López de Quintana used exclusively Pat McGrath products on Alexis and Jennice; Dana + Mariah were executive producers on the project: Dana directing + styling, and Mariah’s shooting photography + orchestrating choreography.

The Paper Magazine piece also highlighted our commitment to using ethically sourced materials and sustainable business practices. By designing and crafting our jewelry locally in New York City we are able to offer the best available nickel-free metal options – products that are safer for both the environment and the wearer. 

Read the Paper Magazine article to learn more about Alexis + Jennice, and visit BOND Studios to shop the collection.

+ thank you Alexis + Jennice, Justin Moran, Jasmine Ting, and Gia Kuan.
