“Where is the circus”: fAll 18
“Where is the Circus”
This fall I was able to get back to a place of travel. If you know me you know that travel is huge part of my creative inspiration, from music to design and honestly at times to keep going. My latest excursion led me to Mexico City, MX where I was able to dive into the world of one of my idols, Frida Kahlo. In true form I was enamored by her free spirit, fearlessness and love of color. Mexico city in itself is one of the most vibrant places I've ever visited.
Just as much as I was over the moon about Kahlo so were kids of the city when she would pass. Because of her unapologetic style and vibrant freedom of expression they would often ask her"Where is the Circus?" The moment I read this statement in Frida & Diego's house right near garments she used to wear I knew I had all I needed to dive into a new collection of Jewelry. This Fall 18’ collection plays with some traditional statements of 2322 but in more modern forms. I also experimented with dimensions a bit and much like Frida and exploring Mexico city, nuances & more designs will continue to be added to the collection as the season moves forward. So please check back on the site and visit the IG page to see what's new. But for now head to the online store and see what's in tow.

Les Marais: A winter collection from 2322
Les Marais' is the winter 17' collection of chokers inspired by Amber's travels to Europe during her fall 16' tour of her latest music project THREE ep. On her first stop of the tour she performed in London and then traveled to Paris, France and stayed in the bustling artistic neighborhood 'Les Marais'. Everything about the area was full of life but the clear esthetic for linear movement, the combining of fine textures and distinct choice in color and shade was very prominent and stuck with Mimz as she returned home to the states.
Staying true to the culture of 2322 and love of organic, recycled and repurposed materials these handmade chokers are constructed using various hides of one hundred percent leather from calf to lambskin. Cut with precision from "30-40" inches in length perfect for doubling around the neck for all sizes. Adorned with Rabbit fur and combined with cork, she is sticking to her conversationalist roots! Weather for yourself or as a gift you're sure to be the talk at your next holiday party.
On December 16th-20th 'Les Marais' Collection will be available exclusively through LesMaraisby2322.bigcartel.com for our first ever online Trunk Show! Enjoy Free Shipping and more goodies as we prepare for a new online store launch in 2017.
2322 is an accessories brand owned and operated by artist amber mimz. designed, constructed and handmade of recycled, organic and repurposed materials in washington, dc.
