To call me obsessed with artist Curtis Kulig's iconic "Love Me" campaign, incepted in 2005, would be an understatement. The simple, now famous call to action slash plea has appeared around the world in cities from New York to Los Angeles, Berlin to Istanbul. And while he's previously dabbled in collaborations with brands as diverse as Disironno Amaretto (how covetable are these Love Me bottles?) and Smashbox, he's never really had a collection to call his own. Until now, that is!
Meet Me + Mi. The love child of Kulig and LA-based jewelry designer Mimi Jakobson, Me + Mi takes the iconic elements of Love Me and interprets them anew in drippy, graffiti-style heart and love-themed baubles - rings, bracelets, pendants and cuffs. Prices are accessible, ranging from just $40 for stud earrings to $198 for heavier, more substantial pieces. I'm hard-pressed to think of a pun that doesn't play on love to accurately represent my feelings here, but rest assured, I'll be adding a piece or two to my personal collection.
