With Love, From Robin
With Beauty and the Mess, my mission is to design glamorous pieces that not only make you look good, but make you feel good too. I received the vision while backpacking Italy with a girlfriend in 2015. In Florence’s Costume Gallery, I was instantly inspired by the creativity displayed on an elaborately gold wired, goddess-like sculpture. Falling in love with how Italians fearlessly bring beauty to everyday life, I committed to doing the same. Painting became my outlet for focusing on my passions, not perfection. Through my painting, I allow myself the freedom to be in the moment, creating beauty through the messy, imperfect process of working with paint and canvas.
I created Beauty and the Mess to pair my paintings with wearables. Each piece in the Beauty and the Mess collection is printed with my original artwork, each with its own unique story.
Beauty and the Mess strives to create a sisterhood with a foundation that life is about passion, not perfection, bringing beauty to everyday life; a brand committed to giving back and supporting other amazing women. For every Beauty and the Mess RESORT purchase, a portion is donated to EBW2020 Foundation to support the economic advancement of women around the world through access to education, community and technology.
