Though we are both lovers of fashion, style, colour and aesthetic, what you might not know is that the Schmidtke family are big sports fans. It’s not unlikely for us to make our schedules work around a Raptors Game or to stay up into the wee hours to see if Milos Raonic makes it to the next round of a Grand Slam tournament. And this month marks the largest sports event of them all: the Olympics. We can still remember the games of 2010 when our family was separated by borders and oceans as Kirsten was finishing school in the U.S. and Anders was overseas traveling in Japan. But regardless of time zones and language barriers we were united by one thing: our love and support for Canada. Though technology wasn’t what it is today, we were all connected to home as we watched the Canadians defeat the Americans in that iconic gold medal game.
At Klas squared, we want to recognize this year’s Winter Games in the best way we know how: in style. We equally appreciate silver and gold regardless of their status on the podium but we like them even better when they are together. We’ve learned from our customers that at the end of the day, no matter your metal, with the right piece of jewelry everyone feels like a champion. Klas squared designs were founded around the wonderful world of silver, but after a decade of designing (and a little nudge from Kirsten), it was time to try something new. For the first time, Klas squared designed in gold this past holiday season and was met with rave reviews. As a result, we’re excited about our spring collection and new designs that we’re sure are winners. But first, we want to talk about how to mix your metals so you can continue to grow your jewelry collection with Klas squared. Join us on February 19th for our second Facebook & Instagram Lives where we’ll be talking all things metal!
And while we’re on the topic of sports, don’t forget to skip the Super Bowl and join us this Sunday (ironically, we’re not football fans but definitely enjoy a good Justin Timberlake halftime show!). If you can’t make it, you can still join in the fun by shopping from kick off to the last whistle in order to receive a free pair of pearl earrings when you spend $150! Need help deciding which pair to pick? Make sure to check out our Facebook Live from our weekend in Muskoka.
What a weekend it was! We spent three days at the JW Marriott brainstorming, planning and goal setting for 2018. The venue proved to be the perfect place for us to open our minds to inspiration and ideas to grow Klas squared into the company and community we know it can be. You have continued to contribute to our vision and mission to encourage women to express their confidence, independence and power through fashion. And with all the love we’re feeling this month, we want to remind you to spread yours with a token of appreciation this Valentine’s Day for that special family member or friend. We’re only a call, message or email away to help pick out the perfect gift. But this February 14th, we know who our hearts belong to…
