Luis Morais

It’s the rare designer that can balance wit, whimsy and sophistication as effortlessly as Miami Beach-based Luis Morais. Born from a single bracelet — an elusive design that Luis DIY’d after seeing it in a magazine — the collection grew quickly when friends and family began coveting his handmade creations. Infused with the spirit of his hometown, the jewelry wears equally well during lazy days by the beach or wild nights on the town, all without losing sight of its high-end heritage. Inspired pairings (gold and hemp, crocodile skin and diamonds, recycled vinyl and enamel) effortlessly mix a couture sensibility with a rock and roll attitude. Touching on references of religion, culture, nature and history, LUIS MORAIS has managed to create a collection of handmade pieces that feel like a second skin.
