In Bloom: A Fresh Romance
Posted on 23 February 2018
Hello, all. This is Brittany Brisco, the new Lead Designer and Creative Director. There have been many changes here at Karen London since our last blog post.
Our lead designer (and my former boss) Kristina McDaniel, has moved on to a new adventure after 7 years with the team.
She built a beautiful foundation for this company and took our look to a new elevation. The reins have now been turned over to me and I am beyond excited to continue in the same direction -- with my own flair, of course.
This Spring season, I am giving you my debut collection: In Bloom. It's fresh with simple layers and made to be effortless. I like a clean look pretty much year-round, but especially within the first few months of the year. We all just got over the hustle of the holidays, had maybe a second to relax and are now back-to-the-grind; making up for time off and preparing for a whole new year ahead.
I mean, it's almost March and I still have no time get creative with outfits on weekday mornings.
These pieces save my sanity by adding a touch of romance to my usual ensemble of jeans and a basic tee.
I focused on Italian-crafted sterling silver, with options of rhodium or gold plating. We've got some adorable studs in soft shapes and an array of silky chains to choose from.
The Petals studs bring a unique shape to the "simple stud" look and pair well with the delicate Morning Mist choker.
Our Dew Drop Dangle Earrings look like metal pearls giving a modern take on a classic lady look.
These chain fringe earrings (The Breezy Fringe) amp up any basic look and take me right into date night with ease. (Plus it's the silkiest chain ever! I won't stop playing with them once they're on.)
The Airy studs play off the timeless circle shape, curving to and from your ear to bring a little dimension.
All the chains are light as a feather -- the popcorn chain used on our Dew Drop lariat is my FAVORITE! (partially pictured above.)
We also brought in some stone pieces from India.
Modeled after vintage silhouettes, these styles capture a raw idea of ancient Roman paintings -- with pastel colors (Chalcedony and Opalite stones,) a rich gold-plated brass and leaf like shapes.
They aren't your usual shade of gold and are not meant to mimic real gold. It's a brassy gold that looks straight out of museum. Like you reached into the display and walked out with ancient relics. It's new. It's a risk. But I hope you take it with me.

This is step one into my creative world. Looking forward to exploring more of it with you.
