Blogstar-beloved designer CC Skye is making big moves. The Malibu-based accessories maven is expanding her eponymous brand's reach via a partnership with with celeb jewelry design firm Glamhouse, known for bringing us Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 line, Erin Wasson's Low Luv collection, Nikki Reed's Mattlin Era capsule, Kim K's Belle Noel range and many more.
Per WWD, Glamhouse designer Pascal Mouawad reveals his plans to bring the already-established jewelry label "into department stores and mass retailers" like Macy's. Skye tells the fashion trade pub that she "was ready to give him my whole brand. It gets lonely at the top, as they say. I wanted a partner and what I got was an army." Apparently, CC Skye is poised to make the big bucks—Mouawad tells the industry pub that "if [a brand] can't do $1 million the first year then I won't even look at it."
CC Skye's first line with Glamhouse includes bestsellers like her signature screw bracelet alongside with new pieces decked out with semiprecious stones; the fall 2014 collection ($60 to $375) is shoppable now here.
