Magic in Motion

Photo Oct 22, 1 06 33 PMWhen it’s this close to Halloween, and the full on lush of fall has spread into the city, there is an air of change that is as exciting as it is scary. Teaming up with self proclaimed witchy woman, photographer, Katie Essick in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood we captured some magic one bright autumn morning. It was a stunning outcome as Madeleine stomped around in the crisp air with hints of warmth from the fleeting sun. Too cool for winter, too hot for summer. Only fall can feel this way.

A Treat

 

‚ÄúJewelry is a treat. Though it‚Äôs not something that we ‚Äúneed‚ÄĚ, it is something that we treasure. L‚Äôavenir‚Äôs goal is to make a product that lasts for generations. The new heirlooms, made from previous ones, that you can actually wear. They have made their way out of the drawer into their future. We believe that jewelry should remain special, artistically made and a means of self-expression.

We’re treating you to a look back at some of our delicious jewelry flat lays and favorite shots from over the last year.

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.

Feathered and Fabulous | Photo series by Aminda Villa

Yet another use for the teensiest little feathers, Jen’s recent collaboration with photographer Aminda Villa produced some amazing pictures. Inspired by runway looks and the work of Jen’s ultimate role model Pat McGrath, the introduction of feathers brought this avant garde make up look to a whole new level. L’avenir’s fun and feathery yellow statement earrings made their way into model Isabel’s turquoise hairstyle.
