On the edge | Photo series by Michael Houser

On a windy afternoon this¬†April Jen paired with Minneapolis Photographer Michael Houser and the stunning Sheena and pulled together an edgy rooftop shoot. Downtown, on the edge of summer, we’re looking forward to more patios, less clothes, and more ways to accessorize…. beacause it’s all about the details.¬†L'avenir_Sheena_Houser-26

She’s like the Wind | Photo series by Michael Houser

A playful deviation from our favorite staple earring, PYT, our Penelope Earrings take each element to the next level. Beautifully decadent filigree beads and rich tawny pearls are stacked with vintage rhinestones and offset with twisted antiqued chain.

The location of Hidden Falls Park in St. Paul was an ideal natural background for a pairing with¬†photographer Tyler Rayburn. ¬†On a sunlit afternoon we captured all the strength and energy of a young woman, fiercely presenting L’avenir¬†in a new depth and light.

The Pieces | Get inspired

Creativity, something taken for granted all to often. We are¬†trying to take time each and every day so sit back and fuel our creative side, and what better way then with the pieces that we have in our stash of working materials. From intricate amethyst brooches to carved lucite buckles we’ve been hoarding a lot of goodies and we are not sorry about it.

The Pieces | Dark Beauty

The alluring nature of dark smokey rhinestones can’t be resisted. We have been collecting intriguing pieces like this for years, making sure to keep a hefty handful for our personal collections…¬†can you blame us?¬†Have no fear, we did keep a few amazing bits for you. A few of these came to us perfectly aged and nicely smokey, others we gave a little attention to bring out their naughty side. Each one is poised and ready to become something new and entirely different.
