Make new friends but keep the gold... and platinum. Inez and Vinoodh and 24K hardware form an unbreakable bond.

24 KARAT MAGIC by Inez and Vinoodh appears in the pages of V119 The Music Issue on newsstands May 2. Pre-order your copy at shop.vmagazine.com.

In this case, all that glitters is gold—and platinum, too. Inez and Vinoodh, photographic superduo and longtime V contributors, have unveiled a new capsule collection with MENĒ, an online direct-to-consumer jewelry brand offering pure 24k gold and platinum jewelry. Inspired by their son Charles Star Matadin, the signature design sparkles with character. Seemingly taking cues from MENĒ co-founder and chief artistic officer Diana Widmaier Picasso’s grandfather, the pieces feature the abstract outline of a face, signifying the Matadin clan: a star- shaped eye for Charles and a nose and mouth figured by the letters “I” and “V.” Despite the family ties, the line is for everybody, sold transparently by gram weight. This series of striking portraits, showcasing the limited-edition MENĒ + IV range, features Inez and Vinoodh favorites such as actress Margaret Qualley, artist boychild, and, naturally, Charles Star himself. JEWELRY THROUGHOUT MENĒ + IV
