Fashion’s ability to evoke emotion can lead us to fall in love with the best of the sartorial world. The items (designs) we choose to wear are a powerful way to communicate our personality and purpose. Finding your style is an ever-evolving process but there is something particular about the fall that calls to us: it brings a feeling of renewal, of change, and an opportunity for a fresh start. The shift in weather has us reaching for wardrobe pieces both new and old whether we’re adding or subtracting layers – and when it comes to jewelry, adding layers is always in. But where to start with adding to your jewelry collection? This is the question Lori, Klas squared designer, asks herself when designing each new season’s collection.
After spending much of the year celebrating Canada’s birthday traveling coast to coast, Lori was reminded of the power nature has on lifestyle and design. Not only does nature provide unlimited inspiration, it is also the driving force behind our every day. It influences our mood, health and wellness not to mention what we choose to wear, directly affecting how we take on our day. It was important to Lori that the fall 2017 collection combine the serenity of nature with the modern sophistication of fashion as evident in the colours represented: pewter for rocks and mountains, off white for snow tops, silver for shining light, electric blue for water, and bronze and jade for earth.
The tranquility of these natural themes guided Lori’s minimalist approach to the collection in which her designs complement pieces from previous collections. But that’s not to say you’ve seen it all before. She has introduced a unique twist on the classic pearl necklace by injecting hematite into the mix and adding lustrous cobalt blue for those who enjoy something with a little punch.
Stay au courant this season by incorporating Klas squared designs with the top fashion trends. From blazers to boots, red continues to be the colour-of-the-moment and the Black Onyx Gemdrop necklace and bracelet complements it perfectly. If fun and flirty is more your style, try the Disco Chain earrings on for size. Or do dots differently: wear our Twisted Silver & Pearls necklace to embrace the polka-dot trend. And for those staying in neutral gear, a little bronze goes a long way.
