Oh damn! When I first say these hot numbers, I was taken back to my middle school days when Lee, Steve, Christine and I would walk around after school stealing the logos off of cars. Mostly the boys did all the work. My first attempt was on an old Mercedes Benz and ended in the breaking of the emblem…it is a very delicate process! But with these bad boys you don’t have go around vandalizing peoples rides. Made By Marne Meisel started in 2002 while she was still in high school. Her father is an avid collector of the ’78 Cadillac Coupe de Villes. When she discovered an old Cadi emblem in a basement drawer, her creative juices started to flow and her first belt was born! She came into more emblems and she was in business! Her designs are a mix of vintage and new found objects and have been in boutiques in NY and SF.
