Tiffany and Co Recruit Elle Fanning and Lupita Nyongo For Reshaping Campaign

Written by. Chalise Macklin

Tiffany and Co is known for providing men with that special, little blue box and bringing joy to many women’s lives. But their signature jewelry and legacy is in jeopardy. The company is experiencing falling profits and stock prices, according to a business report from Business of Fashion. The jeweler is on a mission to turn things around and has enlisted some A-list celebrities to help do so.

Former American Vogue creative director, Grace Coddington, joined the jewelry house as a creative partner to help with rebranding. Coddington has signed teen star Elle Fanning and Lupita Nyong’o on to represent the timeless brand along with models Natalie Westling and Christy Turlington. A historic moment for the company because this marks the first time celebrities have starred in a campaign. Each lady showcases a piece of the brand’s new “Tiffany T” collection. Nyong’o posted a preview of her ad, which will be released nationwide in September.

The reshaped concept is titled “Legendary Style.” Upcoming campaigns will feature women in the studio instead of their iconic ads that are black and white and feature women wearing their jewelry on New York streets. A re-launch of the company’s affordable “Love” collection by designer Reed Krakoff with the slogan “#lovenotlike” will also be released soon.

Tiffany and Co are hoping to attract a younger buyer, particularly millennials. The company also intends to introduce it to new consumers and get skeptics to reconsider.

#Kontrolyouraccessories: Cute accessories that makes your clutch smile too!

There is nothing like locating a great sale where not only you find your size, but a lot of items for a super cool price. Who does not love a sale at store where your heart and wallet is in heaven! I know it makes my heart melt when I walk into a store and see a sign that says “30-50%” off selected items. Most of the time the items on sale are cute and very chic. Not only is it good when you find a good sale on clothes, but most essentially accessories! Yes! I love cute accessories that has the potential to take my look to the next level. From bracelets, bangles, necklaces and earrings, accessories have the ability to change a look with just a snap.

On Thursday, I had the chance to visit a store in Phipps Plaza called Barami. The store was hosting a great sale on clothes, bags, and most essentially accessories! I but a super cute ring for $12.00 which was originally $20.00. Not to mention the store was honoring a 30% sale. So I decided to rack and save. Besides purchasing a ring, I bought two gold buckle hinge bangles and two silver stretchable charm bracelets. Sounds cute right? All together I spent about $45.00 dollars and my wrist and coin purse was very satisfied.
