It’s hard to conjure an era that so consistently brings to mind only elegance and class. The sixties? Bell bottoms, tie-dye, platforms. That says hangin’ in the park. The nineties? Power suits, minimalism, angular shoulders. That screams OFFICE. But the twenties? That’s about the only decade which when we call it to mind makes us think: drinks! feathers! smokey underground speak-easies! And yes… jazz. Not a lot of people are around to tell us about it anymore, but were the twenties the decade long decadent party that we imagine it to be? I hope so…we could use a little more lightness in our lives.
LouLou helps us bring a little of that devil-may-care spirit to our holiday season this year.
Featured: our crystal/feather clutch called Sylvie. Also available in black.
This season’s Holiday Clutch is a no-holding-back, no-understatement-allowed, over-the-top-glamorous Swarovski crystal encrusted gem of an evening bag. We’re proud to present Lola, from the Fall/Winter collection of 2012. She’s a special one who knows that sometimes… more is more.
We’ve posted before about the work that the Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness does for the community in Toronto. In addition to raising awareness, the CCAA has a number of great programs to help survivors of abuse get back on their feet. Ellen Campbell, founder of the organization, came by to present an award of contribution to our designer Jane Ip in recognition of the support that she has given the CCAA.
On top of being a beautiful person who contributes her energies to a cause that’s benefits the community immensely, Ellen is also extremely stylish! We admire her for her big heart, as well as great sense of style. For many of us who have become used to thinking of fashion as accessory, it’s heartening to be reminded being put together and looking good more than just frivolity. It’s a sign of self-respect, and empowerment.
