Frank Ocean has announced the launch of his new luxury goods business Homer.
Inspired by her ‘childhood obsessions’ and ‘legacy as fantasy’, Ocean’s first Homer collection will include fine jewelry and fine jewelry pieces as well as a number of printed silk scarves. Handcrafted in Italy and designed at Homer’s New York headquarters, the jewelry will be crafted from American lab-grown diamonds, 18k gold, recycled silver and hand-painted enamel.
The New York-based company’s first and only jewelry store is slated to open on Monday, August 9, but expect access to be highly exclusive and personalized. The only way to shop the collection is to make an appointment on Homer’s website, although some walk-in appointments are also available.
The Ocean launch also includes a catalog showcasing his initial collection with the singer’s own cover and photograph, as well as a campaign designed by his frequent collaborator Tyrone Lebon. However, the catalog is only available in store or by requesting a copy online at the link above. Check out the cover of the first catalog after the jump.
