The east end has rightfully earned its reputation as the seasonal refuge for style connoisseurs and local tastemakers. A haven for the uniquely talented and creative mindsets, many of whom, help to influence our closet transformation long before mainstream trends. Recently, Gold Coast Style had the esteemed pleasure of attending The Khai Khai Jewelry launch at London Jewelers of Easthampton, NY.
Haim Medine of Khai Khai Jewelry
The trunk show featured the work of designer and Khai Khai founder Haim Medine. Designer Haim was present at the event to showcase his collection. His sister, Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller, who hosted the event was also in attendance. Only further proving that an innovative fashion sense is embedded into the genetic code of the Medine family. Similar to his modern pieces, jewelry designer Haim, however, is making a name for himself all on is own, as one to watch in the industry.
A recently nominated Racked Young Guns Finalist, Medine credits his strong appreciation for quality craftsmanship from a previous position in the family’s jewelry business, one that allowed him the ability to rediscover his passion for design while building a strong foundation of industry knowledge. It was there, where he began to build a portfolio of designs that would shape the early process of the Khai Khai Collection. His design process stems from his intuitive ability to imagine the unimaginable while creating pieces that stretch beyond the confines of conventional design.
The result is a diverse collection that evokes an equal balance of playful whimsy, youthful edge and elegant sophistication. The Khai Khai Collection differentiates itself by offering a line that reflects Medine’s nostalgic creativity while incorporating 21st-century references. Each piece is intricately crafted from 18k gold and other natural stones. Khai Khai, which is bequeathed from a previous nickname of the founder and designer, appeals to the perennially young at heart. The collection uniquely offers consumers high quality pieces that are both attainable and fashion forward. Its current price point ranges from $600-$3000. Ideal for those seeking a modern piece to complete their upcoming fashion week attire, The Khai Khai Collection is currently available at London Jewelers in Manhasset, NY.
