HOLST + LEE was founded by creative director, Natalie Holst in New York City in 2012. Natalie trained with Marc Jacobs and Proenzer Schouler, where she obtained a sharp understanding of the world of cutting-edge fashion and accessory design. By night, Natalie worked in the hub of New York City's night life, where she found inspiration in the outrageous, ever-changing fashion trends she witnessed on a nightly basis.
Wanting to materialise this inspiration into new and innovative fashion accessories, Natalie started to design her own jewellery line, which very quickly gained a solid fan base and witnessed exponential growth within its first year. Natalie's influences come from all manner of people and cultures and it is clear to see that much inspiration is taken from traditional tribal adornment within her designs. She works with a plethora of materials including climbing rope, brass fixtures, leather and raffia, all of which are cleverly fused with her signature, solid brass magnetic closure. Holst + Lee have quickly gained a cult following and have been seen on many a celebrity style setter, including Bella Thorne, Solange Knowles and Vanessa Hudgens.
