Marquis and Camus

PhotobucketEstablished in the fall of 2006 in New York City, Marquis & Camus revisits the past creating a collection that offers a truly unique look into the future of remixed couture. The vintage pieces are timeless, characterized by their excellence, maturity and enduring appeal, accompanied by only the finest modern materials often making them uniquely one of a kind.

The Marquis & Camus collection resurfaces antiquated treasures of the past and marries their exquisiteness with the charms of handmade flowers, hand died silk bias ribbon, Swarovski crystals, bows, lace, and the boldness of chains and genuine leather. Each piece features authentic vintage items, such as bow ties, pocket watches, chandelier crystals, suspenders, cameos, lockets, watch movements, keys, charms, chains, buttons, pendants and pins, which are carefully handpicked from esta
te sales, auctions and flea markets. The classic appeal of each piece is enhanced by sterling silver, brass, silver-plated and gold filled materials. The Marquis & Camus products are sophisticated and complicated, and handled by skilled bench workers in New York. ( from their site).

I love their items, to me the best i have seen in a long time. They are edgy, grungy, daring and fabulous. I wish i can own a few pieces, but for now i can enjoy them through poly and make sets with them. 0x0x0
