If you've been following us for awhile, you'll remember the name Lauren Elan Collections well. We've been carrying the line since we first opened our doors on Queen West, and have always considered Lauren to be one of our favourite local jewellery designers, never afraid to play with bright colour, layer sparkling mixed metals, or create the most stunning statement with tangled pearls and rhinestone pieces. After taking a little bit of time off from jewellery over the past few seasons to focus on other adventures - namely becoming a mother to an adorable little girl named Everly - last week we were lucky enough to have Lauren drop off a few pieces from her new collection, which launched yesterday. Armed with the Emerson necklaces, and the Addison and Elliot bracelets that feature a stunning mix of colourful matte beads, pearls, and tiny gunmetal spikes, we put together some colourful outfits to complement the new pieces and headed towards two of our favourite coloured walls in the neighbourhood to shoot these looks. Perfectly coordinating with our outfits - one in tones of peach and pinks and the other in greens and blues - we felt like we captured the essence of these colourful pieces from the new collection, and we're looking forward to styling more of the styles, which we will have in store over the next couple of weeks.
