but enough of what’s inside my head. let’s focus on the fun things we’ve been doing, because if anything this is a space for me to share what i’ve been up to and this post is super overdue. we shot these images for the coutu kitsch lookbook but i loved them so much i really wanted to also post them here and share these amazing pieces dorian came up with for the most recent park show, and i’m in such awe of her for putting it all together. i mean, coutu kitsch already has an impressive library of beautiful jewellery but the magic comes from creating something in mind and specifically for the event. the opportunity to think outside the box, think bigger and be limitless, those are the qualities these pieces poses that elevates them to a whole other level. we’ve seen many designers come and go and some real struggles with finding a voice and space in the industry but these guys are a shining example of how it’s really done. business savvy, creative, motivated and knowledgable, like the most dangerous combo to cultivate the machine they now run out of the livery shop right here in calgary. but don’t be fooled, the rest of the world is quickly picking up on the value of what dorian and kofi bring to the table. let’s just hope they will be sticking around because when we’re short on inspiration they seem to always be the answer. check out the full coutu kitsch collection on their website and i highly recommend working your way up to a custom piece sooner rather than later. xoxo
