Claudia at John Lewis – Style Guide



John Lewis, one of our key retail partners for many years, invited us to their gorgeous Chelmsford store last month for a very inspiring blogger event. We had the opportunity to engage with many local bloggers and discover some of John Lewis’ exclusive fashion brands – we found a particular affinity with their Modern Rarity, Kin and ‘and/or’ brands and loved hearing about their heritage. Hosted by the inspirational in-house stylists Emma Dillard and Jan Perkins, we so loved their approach that the idea of a styling event took root. Taking place on 29th November 2018, Emma and Jan will help style Claudia Bradby Jewellery with iconic John Lewis in-house fashion brands. This is a fabulous joining of minds.

To share a sneak peek of the upcoming styling event we have put together a selection of outfits, in collaboration with Emma and Jan, showing how these brands beautifully complement one another.

First up Modern Rarity – inspired by the ethos of fewer, better pieces,  elegantly paired with our versatile (exclusive to John Lewis) pink pearl bracelet and white pearl necklacewith a modern silver clasp. Made with white freshwater rice pearls, these pieces can be dressed up or down to create a classic look with a modern twist. We love the way these outfits evoke sophisticated designs, redefining casual wear with a luxurious contemporary touch.

And then to Kin, another John Lewis exclusive brand. This is a modern lifestyle range imbued with a fashion-forward, but relaxed style. Worn at work or over the weekend, the IYU Link Shirred Dress, combined with the angular lines of the Pearl geometric blade drop earrings creates a fun modern look. Similarly, the Loki Floral Collar Dress, with its bold print, is paired with our Essential White Pearl bangle for a simple and elegant touch. We just love this feel.

The essence of AND/OR is based on the versatility of great denim, while evoking a sophisticated urban feel. We love the Avalon Ankle Grazer Jeans paired with our White Pearl Drop Earrings – exclusive to John Lewis. Both timeless pieces, the combination of pearls and denim ensure you a look that won’t go out of style.

For further laidback chic style, Personal Stylists Jan Perkins and Emma Dillard beautifully paired the Megan Midi Dresswith our Button Peacock Pearl Studs.

Modern Rarity, Kin, AND/OR and Claudia Bradby Jewellery are available at all John Lewis stores.
