| HOLST + LEE | was founded by Creative Director, Natalie Holst, in New York City in 2012. Before launching | Holst + Lee |, Natalie trained with Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs by day, and by night she worked in the hub of New York’s nightlife scene, where she witnessed the best in outrageous cutting-edge fashion. Craving a fusion of art, texture and fresh design in accessories that she couldn’t find anywhere else, Natalie started making her own jewelry, which captured the attention of everyone she came in contact with. It comes as no surprise that she quickly made the leap to introduce | Holst + Lee |, which has grown exponentially since.
Each season the collections evolve and draw inspiration from a wide range of unexpected characters and cultures. Natalie continuously innovates using unique materials such as colorful climbing rope, metallic thread, brass findings, raffia, leather tassels and her now signature magnetic clasp.
Quickly garnering a cult following of tastemakers and celebrities alike, | Holst + Lee | has collaborated with top design houses Mara Hoffman, Suno, Yigal Azrouel for Cut 25, Rochambeau and Whit_NY. Her jewelry has been worn by style setters including Bella Thorne, Solange Knowles, Vanessa Hudgens and many others.
Natalie has since moved from Brooklyn to Charleston, SC with her two sons.
| HOLST + LEE | jewelry is 100% handmade here in the U.S.A. at her studio in Charleston.
