MINIMALIST APPROACH: LZZR JEWELRY + THE RECK COLLECTION

[dropcap letter=”W”]e’re in a minimalist type o’ mood lately. Maybe more times than lately. LZZR Jewelry, backboned by LA based jewelry designer, Lizzie Roberts, sends some cute simplistic vibes our way. The designer keeps notions of intrigue with shapes and processes that define all things modern when creating her collections.

Since the beginning of the brand formation in Roberts’ Hollywood apt in 2010, sustainability plays a major role: her bronze and copper pieces are reclaimed from metal factories in LA, along with silver and gold sources by suppliers that work with repurposed metals whenever, wherever possible. We can use some of these as statement pieces for fall, don’t you think? Explore our wish list:

LURA EYEWEAR: SET YOUR EYES ON 24 KARAT GOLD

Zoom in, do a double-take, gaze, or however else you refer to as ‘getting fixated’ on luxurious items. LURA Eyewear touts a minimalist approach to eye-bling in its debut Summer 2014 collection with hand-crafted, 24k gold metalwork for those beautiful windows to the soul. The launch collection consists of four frame styles, all handmade in Italy and fitted with Carl Zeiss lenses, styled with 24-karat gold-plated, .925 sterling silver accents that beautify each pair. Their modern yet timeless and simple enough to dress up or dress down. Get some. Photography by: Nic Alegre
