Jameel Mohammed's Khiry Aims to Define the Luxurious Black Aesthetic by Tamu McPherson

We're obsessing about Political Science undergraduate Jameel Mohammed's jewelry line Khiry, and you should too. Mohammed who is finishing his senior year at the University of Pensnylvania launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance the development of the line and the rest is history. Featured in Essence, on the Man Repeller and in W Magazine, to name a few, and picked up by Moda Operandi for SS17, Khiry's star is quickly rising. One to definitely watch and tune into, Mohammed has positioned Khiry (which is his middle name) as a vehicle aimed at defining "the luxurious black aesthetic and the principles that underlie the practice of cultural production." His mission is to enrich Khiry with a "sense of heritage by really grounding it in deep cultural and historic research, but also looking at what’s happening now, and projecting it all forward in a way that hopefully resonates and inspires." We are already entralled by the conversation and can't wait to wear the collection and see how it evolves. For now we're super content with getting to know Jameel and we hope you are too. Please enjoy.
