After a short hiatus, Tel Aviv-based designer Meirav Ohayon has emerged as an industry pioneer with her namesake handbag and jewelry label—drawing from her background in costume and set design and her Bezalel Academy of Art and Design education.
Ohayon’s collections effortlessly weave drama and minimalism, with pieces that feel more like wearable art than simple accessories. Each season, she abides by her thread of traditional craftsmanship to inspire creations that are classic, edgy and bold.
While the luxe handbags are functionally designed for mothers and city dwellers, they can be taken from day to night thanks to striking hand-stitched, sewn, drawn and painted elements. Ohayon’s jewelry designs uphold the same attention to detail; inspired by the malleability and endless possibility for expression with materials such as leather and metal.
