Last night we hosted our SXGOOD event at our downtown flagship store. Inspired by a collaboration with Bloom and Grace, the event debuted this new video, our tassel and rope collaboration with B&G, and was a meet and greet for those passionate about social good while making it stylish, no less.
The event was partnered by Shot at Life of the United Nations Foundation and is an organization that provides life-saving vaccinations to children around the world. “Bloom and Grace was founded in 2013. While working in sub-Saharan Africa, founder Dani Lachowicz witnessed firsthand the difference that access to basic childhood vaccinations made in developing countries. She wanted to create an exciting way to give people at home the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children in developing countries. Inspired by the jewelry that she collected in Africa, Dani decided to find new artisans and designers in developing countries and create a unique line of jewelry for the socially conscious consumer.”
And that’s where we came in. Collaborating with Dani to put our own KK spin – think bright tassels and brass accouterments – on existing South African-made rope from her artisans, a collection we all love came to be. Along with the design collaboration we also partnered to match the vaccinations provided with each piece.
