Laila Ali is wearing Karine Sultan Gold Cuff to the 2013 BET Awards Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE on June 30 and Debra Lee’s Pre-BET Awards Celebration Dinner at Milk Studios on June 29, 2013 Los Angeles, California.
Karine Sultan is an esteemed French artist and a go-to for Hollywood stylists. Her line, Karine Sultan Paris, is the result of a remarkable 20-year journey in creative jewelry design and craftsmanship. Now living in L.A., Karine designs for women of all ages. What we love? Her timeless manipulation of basic metals. Distressed, twisted, hammered, cutout… each piece is truly unique.
Here, Karine shares a bit of the mystery behind her designs.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
My design is a reflection of what I feel and experience. It might start with a simple bracelet that anybody could find anywhere. After spending some time just looking at objects, clothes, or even people surrounding me, I turn my inspiration into shape.
What prompted your move from the high-style Paris scene?
I had the opportunity to open my first US boutique. And L.A. has a style reputation of its own – the beautiful and interesting architecture, the culture, and most importantly the people of the West Coast, have definitely influenced my design style – organic elegance.
