Fashion is art. Art is expression. Expression is liberating.
Burning Man is the culmination of all these things, with people from all walks of life coming together as free spirits in Black Rock City Desert once a year. While the celebrations expand and the creative embers burning brighter each year, the Burning Man community continually grows. Collectively The Playa becomes one, but the power of that union is grounded on the unique characters who bring their own purpose and sense of style to each burn.
This year, in anticipation of Burning Man 2016, M. Cohen has curated five special stacks of bracelets, designed with the vibe of The Playa in mind, but more importantly with a symbolic story to amplify the intent of those wearing them.
All five artfully-designed looks, include three handmade bracelets, are specially priced at just $500, and are only available for a limited time.
Now, Find Your Purpose:
The most common question we receive at M. Cohen is, "What are your top selling bracelets?" With hundreds of styles to choose from there are an endless number of combinations you can layer to create a standout look that speaks to your individual style. But still, some timeless classics seem to work well in almost any stack and with almost any outfit. Whether you're a wanderlust at heart who lives on the edge with a rougher wardrobe, or your smart ensemble is meant to project the presence of a sophisticated gentleman with distinguished taste, there are some undeniable jewelry accents that can work for for both.
M. Cohen Fundamentals offers a simple way to identify the top looks from our diverse collection, so that you can find the most tasteful way to start your stack, or the best way to add a solid layer to the wrist wear you're already owning.
Take a look at the Fundamentals Tab and shop the requisite looks that are must-owns for your everyday accessory plans.

(LOS ANGELES, CA) – M. Cohen has announced a new partnership with international fashion retailer, Aishti, to bring a special collection of jewelry to stores throughout the Middle East.
The partnership, which first came to fruition in March of 2016, was sparked by a growing consumer demand in M. Cohen’s online business amongst Middle Eastern customers. The decision to collaborate with Aishti was made with the focus of serving fashion-savvy customers in that region, as the retailer has high-end boutiques in such cities as Beirut, Amman, Dubai and Kuwait City. M. Cohen Communications Director, Benjamin Kemp, stated, “We saw our online shopping from the Middle East grow by over 30% in the fourth quarter of 2015, and our flagship store in Los Angeles has become a prime destination for affluent international shoppers who are gravitating towards the layered looks M. Cohen is known for. The natural progression was to find the right partner to work with overseas, in order to provide a more intimate shopping experience to those consumers.”
Designer, Maor Cohen, stated, “When I look at Aishti, I see how large their market presence is, and I also recognize their taste in selecting brands to stock. We know our clientele, and M. Cohen pairs well the current looks of brands like Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Rag & Bone, so this alignment makes perfect sense for both of our companies.” Aishti is now carrying M. Cohen in select stores through Beirut, with plans to expand to other areas by fall of 2016.
Every spring, Indio, California becomes a destination for the free-spirited to converge in celebration of cultural diversity, art, music, and fashion. Regardless of the lines that so often divide us in our daily lives, for two weeks in April, there is an undeniable energy in the desert that is shared by tens of thousands. It is a display of youthful exuberance unlike anything else. Here, personalities are amplified. With arms in the air, a sea of bodies collectively move to powerful guitar lines and percussion tracks that permeate through speakers. A lighthearted vibe pervades the air. Each moment is a canvas, on which people from all walks of life paint lasting memories. Cameras capture it all. Foreign hands becoming intertwined, the collective light shining from a cornucopia of smiling faces, unique outfits curated by fashion-savvy liberated souls, and the beauty of motion that comes when synchronized masses find synergy with a beat.
This is unbridled expression. This is Coachella.
To love it is to be part of it. With that in mind, M. Cohen is excited to share a thoughtfully paired series of bracelets exclusively for Coachella 2016. Two classic pieces, the Knotted 4-Layer Silver Stamped Bracelet and the African Vinyl Disc Bracelet, fashioned in vibrant color combinations of: electric yellow with summer white, and neon orange with skyline blue.
These paired pieces will only be available now through April 30th at the special rate of $200.00, both in-store and online.
This past month M. Cohen had the pleasure of being interviewed by Eleonor Picciotto, from The Eye of Jewelry. The feature was very unique, as it unveiled different layers of the character that makes up Maor Cohen. This interview was a refreshing conversation about design, family, inspiration, fashion and what it is like to be a burner. To take a deeper look into the brand and the man behind the brand, check out the full feature, here.
Take a look at the official launch of the M. Cohen Studio in Mad Lords Paris. It was a tremendous event filled with many friends, old and new. Located at 316 Rue Saint Honoré, 75001 Paris, France, Mad Lords is nestled away in the courtyard of a 17th century building that is rich with history. Fittingly, the boutique is accented with thought-provoking art, vintage furniture and a unique array of accessories that will even captivate individuals with the most scrupulous tastes. The M.

(LOS ANGELES, CA) – Renowned men’s accessory designer, Maor Cohen, has partnered with Mad Lords of Paris to bring Los Angeles influence to France, with his signature layered looks and new cutting-edge jewelry collections.
On Wednesday January 27, the M. Cohen Studio at Mad Lords will be unveiled for the first time – bringing the essence of Cohen’s popular West Hollywood boutique to one of Paris’ top destinations for men’s fashion. The decision to launch this shop-in-shop concept came in response to the burgeoning popularity and increased demand for the brand in Europe. Cohen said, “Last year at Pitti Uomo it was exciting to see how much we had grown; with so many influencers that I respect wearing M. Cohen jewelry, I knew it was time to expand. Mad Lords’ location and appreciation for style made for a perfect synergy with my core vision. ”
Mad Lords owner, Serge Muller, stated, “This is going to be a special partnership. M. Cohen has long been a top-seller at our store, and over the last year the growth has been so strong that we wanted to do everything possible to foster a deeper connection between our customers and the M. Cohen brand.” The M. Cohen Studio at Mad Lords will have the most robust selection of M. Cohen accessories in Paris, including all core collections, as well as new designs exclusive to boutique.
Cohen continued by saying, “We’re giving customers an authentic experience by curating custom displays that are rooted in the spirit of M. Cohen, and filling them with an eclectic mix of our finest accessories. A piece of Los Angeles will live in Paris – it’s a beautiful thing.”

After a summer that was highlighted by the release of a special edition Burning Man necklace and several new curated looks in the M. Cohen Stacks series, many fashion enthusiasts and loyal M. Cohen customers have been awaiting something big from our studio.
Now, with the fall months upon us and winter fast approaching, we're excited to finally unveil one of our largest releases to date - The Monarch Collection.
The designs have been in the works for almost a year, as Maor pulled inspiration from nature and history throughout his creative process. The Monarch Collection is comprised of statement pieces that work well as standalone accessories, or as compliments to existing M. Cohen jewelry. While every piece has its own story, the collection is more about what each ring, bracelet or necklace will say about the individual wearing it.
Given how seamless Monarch pairs with other M. Cohen collections, it is easy to see some influence from series like: Barcode, Passage or Core. When examined closely however, the identity of many pieces within Monarch can be seen as reflections of nature, or as links to historical periods in which knights and royalty were the most captivating figures of their time. While the approach to design is completely modern, the Monarch Collection is a reminder that true values remain timeless.
