New York City-based jewelry designer Fred Meyers (FMI) will be opening a new store in San Francisco, California, to promote his upcoming jewelry line.
The new store, which will open in the Bay Area in December, is modeled after a classic Tiffany jewelry collection that focuses on “quality and design.”
Meyers, who previously opened his own jewelry store, called the collection “an incredibly diverse collection, inspired by everything from Tiffany to Chanel to Gucci and more.”
“The goal is to create a collection that’s not just for the fashion world, but also for the people who work in the industry,” Meyers told Next Big Futures in an interview.
“And I think that will be a great addition to the San Francisco Bay Area.”
The store, in San Bruno, will offer a variety of brands including FMI, MADE, and J. Crew.
The store’s namesake, Fred Meyer, founded the company in 1982.
Meyer is a self-described “gutsy guy,” and the collection includes items such as an earring made out of silver, a bracelet made of gold, and a necklace with platinum and platinum-blued gold.
“We’re very interested in creating something that’s very much an art piece,” Meyer said.
“It’s about the artistry of the jewelry.”FMI is offering free shipping and free returns on all purchases.
Meyers says the new store will be open from January to June, but that the store may be open longer in the future.
“It’s a lot of work and I don’t have any time right now,” he said.
FMI has been a fixture in the jewelry world for some time.
In 2013, Meyers launched his own fashion line, the J.
Crew Collection, which he co-designed.
After the store opened, Meyer was invited to speak at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
FMI’s store is being designed by Michael C. Boggs, who designed and created the fashion label, Gucci.
The company is also working with local designers such as Astrid Silva.FMI says the store will have a limited number of pieces available.
Meyers says he plans to sell more items in the next few months, but is also open to new collaborations.
“The store has to be a new take on the same look that’s been in my closet since I was 12,” he explained.
“I can’t really say what that looks like yet.”
