Brazil native Leticia Tolentino is the young, creative talent behind Le Tolentino, a collection of urban-bohemian luxury jewelry founded in 2011. Leticia’s workshop is based in São Paulo, Brazil, and has been structured as an all-inclusive site for handmade creation so that the designer has the freedom to be involved at every point in the production process. Her immersion in the brand from beginning to end is one of the distinguishing factors of the Le Tolentino name, as it gives the proper attention to turn every jewel or piece of metal into a fine, wearable creation.
Beyond her affinity for the technical research, Leticia’s jewelry is well-known for its unique mix of shapes and materials, as well as her signature use of raw, unpolished Brazilian gems. The pieces all feel incredibly organic by nature, but the modern structures give them a sleek, metropolitan wearability, perfect for the urban woman. She draws inspiration from the galaxy, meteors and stars to African nomadic tribes.
"When I think a jewel, the first thing in my mind is about something that always accompanies the woman, something versatile, elegant and timeless - in the sense of not being tied to some "trend" with short lifespan" says Leticia
runway2street is very excited to have this fresh face of fashion on board our curated team of luxury jewelry designers. Every collection has the ability to transition beautifully from day to night, and serve as a unique bit of sparkle to every outfit. The attention to detail perfectly matched to Leticia’s adventurous eye for design makes Le Tolentino a true treasure trove for sophisticated statement pieces that you can cherish for years to come.
