Our Philosophy

[wowslider id=”8″]
We created this Q&A loosely based on Harper’s Bazaare’s “What’s Makes You Fabulous?” questionnaire and Facebook’s viral quiz, “21 Random Facts Your Friends Don’t Know About You” to help you get to know OCEAN + PEARL’s style aesthetics, design theories and life’s passions.


Our style and design in three words:
Classic, beach, bold.

Our style and design icons:

  • Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Founders, Marchesa | Stunning and sophisticated designs that leave you breathless.
  • Kelly Wearstler | Classic and bold not only as an interior designer, but kills the fashion world as well.
  • Tamara Mellon, Founder, Jimmy Choo | Savvy business woman. Shoe empire. Need we say more?
  • St. Laurent | Cabas handbags and Tribute shoes are amongst our favorites. Simply divine.
  • Tory Burch | Embodies the style and spirit of Gulf Shore Boulevard, classic yet modern sensibility perfect for coastal living.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker | Given.
  • Madonna | Not yogi-master-kilt-wearing-version-13.0 Madonna, but Desperately-Seeking-Susan-a-million-black-rubber-bracelets-up-the-arm-lace-gloves-in-the-club-old-school Madonna.
