Nomade Exquis: Artisanal Pieces for the Discerning Shopper

In the early years of my career I had the pleasure of working with an incredibly talented and tasty style maker Mo Clancy.  Mo is a former trend watcher and cultural forecaster for iconic brands such as Levi Straus and Proctor and Gamble.  Mo co-founded one of the country’s first influencer marketing and cultural anthropological companies Ammo Marketing, and has created several beauty and fashion consulting companies including Thread Group and We Love Beauty.

In 2008 Mo launched Nomade Exquis, a company committed to creating unique luxury artisanal hand crafted and hand dyed clothing and accessories.  These limited edition pieces were initially privately sold to celebrities, stylists and tastemakers and are now selling out faster than they can be produced.

The idea originated from Mo’s clear passion and interest in fashion trends.  She would find unique pieces that she would fall in love with and began amassing a collection of rare unique jewelry vintage jewelry from the 60s-80s.  As interest grew in the pieces she collected and wore, Nomade Exquis was born.  Mo had realized a gap in a niche jewelry market but also saw the bigger fashion and economic trend in that people were beginning to invest more in signature accessories that they could dress up or down rather than spending on current and often fleeting fashion trends.

And on that topic I of course had to ask for a fashion prediction in order to prepare our wardrobes.  Mo’s fashion must haves for 2011:  Southwestern/Santa Fe style patterns done in contemporary ways.  But please, leave your old bolo ties behind.

Nomade Exquis has many exciting things in the works including a line of artisanal handbags launching later this year.  All I have to say is, if you come across one of these incredible pieces, don’t think twice about it, you may not get another chance.

Nomade Exquis currently sells at Broken English, Church and Barneys NY.
