Introducing the designers of tomorrow, today.

Big Lives scours the globe to identify up-and-coming designers, and tells their stories through exceptional retail experiences.

THE THING ABOUT RETAIL

Retail isn’t dying, our imagination is. Shopping is about falling in love with a brand by discovering its story. Big Lives brings narrative to life through curated retail moments, ranging from unique activations to digital experiences to one-on-one high touch services for clients.

Our Fall-Winter Collection

Style is a form of celebration. Remarkable pieces accentuate special moments. Big Lives curates emerging designers who share our philosophy.

Ready-to-Wear

We curate stand-alone pieces from contemporary designers that will capture moments. A dress for a dear friend’s wedding, a jacket for travel, a sweater to keep you cozy on an amazing night. Big Lives sources pieces ripe for memories to come.

Shoes

We believe in transformative footwear. Remember that shoe - the one that belonged to you before you owned it. The one that changed the way everything looked on you. The one that changed how everyone looked at you. We want this for you, every season.

Accessories

We say a purse is personal. Why you choose it, how much you treasure it, what you put inside. It’s a time to be yourself, on the daring side. Our accessories channel independence, playfulness, vibrancy.

Jewelry

We cherish the moment when a piece of jewelry becomes a companion. You go through experiences together. We curate modern, one-of-a-kind pieces on the path to becoming your witness, protector, thing of magic or superstition.
