MEET THE DESIGNER: BROOK&LYN

Brook&Lyn
Mimi Jung SHOP ALL
Fueled by her ability to create the sort of things you could stare at all day long, Mimi Jung has had a varied, multi-dimensional career path. The designer, who lives in Brooklyn with her ad-world husband (in an exceptionally furnished apartment, no less), attended ultra-competitive Cooper Union, after which she dove into the realm of graphic design, with a focus on books. “I think I liked the fact that there was an end product—something you can hold. It felt very permanent, as opposed to a campaign or a billboard,” Mimi explains. READ MORE


Fueled by her ability to create the sort of things you could stare at all day long, Mimi Jung has had a varied, multi-dimensional career path. The designer, who lives in Brooklyn with her ad-world husband (in an exceptionally furnished apartment, no less), attended ultra-competitive Cooper Union, after which she dove into the realm of graphic design, with a focus on books. “I think I liked the fact that there was an end product—something you can hold. It felt very permanent, as opposed to a campaign or a billboard,” Mimi explains.
But she quickly tired of the tedious, long-term nature of that work and fell into fashion blogging, first as a sort of passion project and then, as she grew a dedicated following, as a full-blown gig. Her jewelry line came to be in a similar way—half happenstance, half hard work. After getting lost in the crazy rock collection of a store in Hong Kong, Mimi brought her finds home to make jewelry for
herself and was quickly bombarded with inquiries—and soon sales—from fans.
You can spot Mimi’s necklaces and bracelets a mile away: Each piece features rich, moody agate slices encircled by a hand-crocheted borders and hung from thick, silky rope. Creating her first two collections has fulfilled that same desire to make something concrete. “I’m a little bit of a control freak,” Mimi says. “Actually, I’m a lot of one. I need to have that finished piece or I feel like I don’t know where it’s going, and it drives me crazy.” —erica
