About Rilee & Lo
Smartwatches are functional, fun and engaging, but the watchbands currently available are not fashion friendly - until Now! Rilee & Lo's (formerly XISTWEAR) exclusive watchbands fuse tech and fashion brilliantly, for both men and women. Our Rilee & Lo watchbands add fashion to your smartwatch. We also offer coordinating Rilee & Lo bracelets, perfect for stacking with your Rilee & Lo watchband or other jewelry!
Together owners Johanna Ferguson and Nick Grossi know a few things very well: tech, fashion, and business. Johanna has been designing jewelry for 10 years, and for several years retailed jewelry for other designers including DANNIJO, Elizabeth & James, Giles & Brother & CC SKYE. Johanna has worked at Google for 14 years, working with many large tech clients, which made for a natural marriage of the two genres. Nick has a love for fashion and design as well. His design expertise is seen most in his homes that he has a large hand in interior design. In addition, Nick has his MBA, was a trader, and has worked for year in finance restructuring. When the Apple® Watch launched in early 2015 Johanna and Nick quickly purchased them, but were dismayed by the band, which didn't coordinate well with daytime apparel and was unacceptable for evening wear. The new Apple® watchband was too sporty and did not layer well with their bracelets either. This fashion frustration quickly lead to a fashion inspiration, and within months Johanna and Nick had designs and CADs completed and Rilee & Lo was born!
Rilee & Lo (at the time XISTWEAR) launched with bands to fit all Apple® Watch collections and comes in assorted sizes to fit all wrists. We offer six classic stainless steel finishes including gold, rose gold, silver, gunmetal, black and navy. Our unique stretch link design is very comfortable and Design Patent Pending! Arm candy has never looked so polished as when you layer our Rilee & Lo™ watchband with our Rilee & Lo™ bracelets!
Rilee & Lo plans to expand into Android options, more materials (leather cuffs, wraps, etc.) and will expand the jewelry collection into rings, earrings and necklaces to create a complete collection to pair with our fabulous Rilee & Lo watchbands and bracelets.
