Post3_Image1

When we spent the afternoon visiting with BRVTVS jewelry designer Caroline Ventura at her studio and apartment in New York’s West Village, we couldn’t help but notice her enviably eclectic record collection—“A lot of the music I listen to isn’t current, so playing it on vinyl feels like I’m doing it justice”—so we asked her to put together a playlist to relieve us from the endless loop of holiday tunes. Here, her favorite upbeat punk and rock classics (there’s not a single jingle bell to be heard).

2. “Sweet Jane,” Lou Reed
