The duo who sell at Bergdorf Goodman will sell their new line, Hope Marian, exclusively at Urban Outfitters this summer. “I’ve wanted to bring our statement work to a larger audience for quite some time,” says Fortunato. “Urban Outfitters was the perfect arena in which to do that.”
Shapes identical to those found in the Lizzie Fortunato Jewels main line are incorporated into Hope Marion, crafted from new and found materials, selected specifically for Urban Outfitters. “My jewelry is consistently recognized as over-the-top, head-turning accessories and I didn’t want to lose that cache,” adds Fortunato.
