MNY Interview with Cristina Gabriele of Heart & Noble 

Heart & Noble's Fall/Winter 2014 Runway Show at Launch NYC Fashion Week

Heart & Noble is a London & New York City based bespoke jewelry label, created by Cristina Gabriele. Cristina has been working with Manufacture New York to build her brand and take it to the next level. With collections ranging from 3D printed acrylic designs to silver and gold necklaces, Heart & Noble is set to become the next big name in jewelry. We sat down with Cristina to discuss her inspirations and aspirations for Heart & Noble. 

MNY: How would you describe your collection in one word?
CG: Industrious.

MNY: What was your inspiration while creating your collection?
CG: Everyday, overlooked, under appreciated objects that scatter our world. 

MNY: What is the history of Heart & Noble and what started you along your current path? 
CG: I was always fascinated by design, production, and creation and often tinkered with explored the materials around me. I knew for quite some time that I wanted to start my own venture, and after 3.5 years of designing for someone else, it seemed the natural moment to jump!

MNY: What other designers inspire you? 
CG: Architects, Industrial Designers and engineers influence me tremendously, and of course, some clothing designers too, Rei Kawakubo and Issey Miyake inspire and energize me endlessly.

MNY: If you could have your pick of any celebrity to wear your designs, who would it be? 
CGI would choose a heart, and a noble... Anjelica Huston & Christopher Walken AND Tilda Swinton & Adrien Brody, if we are talking true celebrity.

MNY: How have Manufacture NY and LAUNCH NYC helped you along your path?
CG: I joined Manufacture NY because they are a team of dreamers AND doers, This is highly unusual. They aim high, execute to perfection and have a genuine passion for what they do. I too am this way. Being part of a collective like this allows you to accelerate your dream and the dreams of others simultaneously. Its an honor to be intertwined with such brilliant, kind people.
