The solitude of Lac Leman creates the perfect workspace to enter the interior of thought. This is where dreams take flight, ideas are honed, and design is born. In parallel to an ever changing background of mountains, lake and city, the moniker 'Infinite Luxury for Life' churns beauty in the designer's mind as if he were standing in a museum's rotating world of collections.

New York, Paris, London, Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore. Every City is a FORBIDDEN CITY. So said the label since the beginning and for good reason. The intensity of the city blended with the peace of creative space fuel the dynamic inclusion of so many nuanced elements of our lifestyle of design.

An exploration of the fluidity of life. FORBIDDEN CITY discovers and introduces pragmatic use of luxury design for all genders. Men, Women, X - sensorial experience is what trumps labels. The natural attraction between object and sex is where fashion meets human need. Human need is also sometimes far from ethereal and primitive; it can be pragmatic too. John & Kevin's thesis has always been to design in reality and for reality, with whatever label or role that may be being irrelevant to the grand scheme of being who we really are.

Within the design of each piece comes a story of adventure and inspiration from one of over 120 countries visited or inhabited by the designer. Feeling the pulse of different people, cultures, and spaces on a daily basis weaves specialty and nuanced universality into every collection. From the early days of Asian inspired jewelry to our current day legendary globalist pragmatism that defines our five product lines, therein lies the key to why Forbidden City is desired by the world's top names from Kazakhstan's steppe to America's biggest cities and every place in between.
