Get the Deets on Annie Costello Brown’s Inspiration Boards

Inside Job BY alisha prakash 06/08/2013

“I have a set of about four or five rotating boards that have different grouped themes on them,” says Annie Costello Brown, an L.A.-based jewelry designer who’s the queen of understated. “They’re just a way to get the ball rolling and get inspired. It’s less about being literal and more about getting the essence of something—about stealing an emotional quality.” Here, three themes that are really speaking to Annie right now.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

“The sandals are Indonesian and from a book called Trading Style. The packaging is Japanese and from a book called How to Wrap Five Eggs. The hat is from a craft book I found at the library. They’re all things that were made with materials that were at-hand at the time and part of the natural surroundings of the people who made them. I like the idea that even if you don’t have a lot of money or access to different materials or manufacturing capabilities, with your creativity, you can take the things you have and try and use them in a creative way.”

Tina Chow was a rad jewelry designer. I like women who have an androgynous or understated style. I think Tina’s a good example of that. Herb Ritts took this picture. I just think she’s really beautiful. I would aspire to have someone like her wear my stuff.”
