Attire Accessories - Dec 2017/Jan 2018 (Issue 67)

74 ATTIRE KATHERENA Fashion Promotion graduate Katie Sykes has recently launched Katherena, a stylish and practical accessories brand offering a collection of bags for modern women with busy lifestyles. Having started out as an assistant fashion stylist in London, Katie worked with high profile celebrities across a range of mediums before deciding this lifestyle wasn’t for her. Having moved back home to Norfolk to follow her dream of running her own business, her range of bags are, and will always be, a limited collection.This will ensure the products are distinctive and original, with a true sense of exclusivity. The designs, which range from cute vintage-inspired suitcase clutch bags and modern rucksacks, boast fantastic security features, as well as durable vegan materials. J&S JEWELLERY Offering a selection of original jewellery designs – which will soon include personalising options – this family-run label’s collections reflect the current trends for delicate astrology, stars, crystals, nature and wedding-appropriate gems. Coming card-packaged, J&S Jewellery pitches itself within the gift market, while still appealing to shoppers looking for necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets that resonate with them personally, whether it’s because they want a Scorpio charm necklace with their birthstone, or whether they want to create a mix-and-match set of dainty crystal bracelets to stack on their wrist. Founded by Norfolk duo Jenny and Sophie Laslett, each J&S Jewellery collection reflects a facet of the sisters’ personalities. With their combined creative skills, all design, sourcing, finishing and photography is done in house.
