With the help of London’s newest menswear bastion Hostem, proprietor James Brown and prestigious eyewear brand Oliver Peoples, The Doctor Romanelli brand unveils its newest creation: Dr. Goodfellow. Darren Romanelli (DRx) is a pioneer of aesthetic innovation, renowned for reviving cultural classics by twisting the familiar into the fresh. He applies a unique signature blending of past and present to each new creation with passion, dedication, commitment and, most importantly, personal connection. His latest project fuses elements of the Victorian era with the fantastic mythological characters from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
With an edition size of just 10 pieces, the statuettes are truly rare collectibles. Exquisite features lend the figurines a sense of detail rarely found in bronze art of this scale, including scissors, stethoscope and a custom jewelry-quality monocle with chain produced by Oliver Peoples. Standing approximately 14 inches tall, Dr. Goodfellow is offered in three finishes. Six are made in a traditional bronze patina, which will continue to gain character as the surface interacts with the atmosphere over time. Two are triple-plated in Sterling silver overlaid with nickel to prevent tarnishing, and the final two are triple-plated in 18k Gold making a total limited edition of 10. Wearing a classic top hat and stately Oliver Peoples monocle, Dr. Goodfellow helps keep the magic in medicine and offers just what the doctor ordered! Dr. Goodfellow will be available at select stores worldwide in November, including the Dr. Romanelli Prescription Shoppe at Hostem and Maxfield in Los Angeles.
