>> INSIDER WIRE —Philip Crangi, winner of last year's CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design and collaborator with Jason Wu for Fall 2009, launched an e-commerce site today for his costume jewelry line Giles & Brother, due to all the phone calls his studio receives inquiring about his jewelry availability. A quick flip through the site features safety pin earrings, leather lashed bracelets, his trademark railroad spike cuffs — which, as a grand opening treat, Crangi is offering free stamping on — and a noticeable amount of brass. As Crangi explained in The Cut's recent studio visit: "We're obsessed with brass. Brass is the new gold. It's recessionary material." [Style File, The Cut]
