Desert Princess

Inside of all of us is a goddess of the sun and she comes out at the first glimpse of summer. You can feel her heart smiling as she basks in the early summer sun, and hear her footsteps; playful under the warm summer moonlight nights.  Long summer days and warm summer nights are every California girl’s favorite time of year.  To celebrate the changing of the seasons, we ventured out to the desert in Coachella Valley with my little sister Chloe, and shot her in our NAVEN Maxi dresses. 

To complete the look we paired the dresses with a delicate gold body chain and simple strappy sandals.  For effortless windblown hair we added a salt water spray and Moroccan oil to her natural curls and tasseled them between our fingers.  We accented Chloe’s eyes with a subtle Bobby Brown shadow called “Sable” and used a MAC shimmer highlighter on Chloe’s cheeks.  The best addition to her sun kissed look was that by the end of the shoot the sun naturally brought out her freckles.  Coachella may have come and gone, but we are bringing our desert vibes back with us and embracing this easy breezy NAVEN summer look!

Naven Pop-up Shop

We teamed up with fellow Canadian's Courtney Watkins and Jigme Nehring from the Vancouver based high-end vintage retailer Mine & yours and stylist Lisset Mora on Easter Weekend to do a Pop-Up Shop at Live Astro on Melrose avenue in West Hollywood.  The pop-up featured Naven's classic dresses, separates, and outerwear as well as vintage accessories and handbags by Chloe, YSL, Louis Vuitton, and Alexander McQueen.  Customers received 60%-80% off all apparel as well as a gift with purchases. 

Naven collaborated in 2014 with Mine & yours at their Robson Street Pop-up Shop in Vancouver, Canada during the holiday season.  The Pop-up was such a success that Courtney and Jigme made the trek to LA to put on their second event.  A Big thank you to the pop-up team below!

At the Opening Party Thursday April 2nd, which was covered in the media by Racked LA and LA Times, fashion influences, customers, and friends enjoyed beats by DJ Dom and complimentary cocktails as they shopped.

Fun in the Sun

Both single and ready to mingle, we decided to sneak away for Valentine’s Day weekend to spend some time with the family, and have some fun in the sun in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  We stayed in the high hills of Pedregal in Cabo, taking in the spectacular view of the city and the marina, meanwhile we spent our days on the private beach Pamilla Sur, at the family home with our cousins.   In this Shot we love the contrast of the stone and tropical foliage against Kym’s Naven Python Print Skirt, and Planet Blue matching bangle and necklace, where she truly embraced her inner mermaid.

With the view old “Old Town” Cabo in the background, in the foreground Kym rocks her Lux by Lisa Vogel Bikini and Brixton Hat from www.revolvecloting.com.

The versatility of NBD x the Naven Twins collection is seen here where Kym styles her NBD Floral Pencil Skirt with the new bandeau style NBD Play it Again Top.  Kym finishes the look with Alex and Annie gold plated bangles.  Lex incorporates her Twins Flame Maxi Dress in Python Print into a daytime look with bare toes and a sun hat.  Always a beach vacay necessity Lex pairs her vintage jean shorts with her NBD Jolene Bra Top.

Our favorite spot in Cabo is by far Palmilla Sur, a little private community tucked away between the mountains ranges of San Jose Del Cabo, home to one of the most beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal blue oceans.  If you're looking to escape the tourists and feel the authenticity and romanticism of Mexico, this the perfect spot.  The family home being on a prime beachfront pot, we spent the days lounging with the cousins on the beach and at the pool.

Winter in LA

Winter in LA

The late afternoon sun shines bright in the sky, her rays entangled between the clouds and tall beach palms.  A warm golden hue melts across the Venice canals like honey.  It sure doesn’t look like winter in LA, but deceiving as she may look, the air is crisp and nippy in the late afternoon in Venice by the beach.

One of my favorite past time this time of year is taking a stroll along the Venice Canals.  Missing that Christmas feeling in December I throw on a pale pink faux fur vest, essential for any holiday look, my favorite Naven Jumpsuit I’ve been saving all year round for cold weather, and my signature Marc Jabcobs gold watch and bangles, and thin gold chains.  The setting is just magical!

For a transition look from my late afternoon stroll by the Canals to dinner and drinks with girlfriends on Abbot Kinney I chose a pair of black knee highs from Nasty Gal, our new Chromat NBD X the Naven twins matching black set: top $115 and skirt $138 (available only at www.revolveclothing.com), a Zara caplet jacket, and Michael Kors tan leather purse.  I kept my signature Marc Jabcobs gold watch and bangles and hair and makeup from my day-time look, to keep things easy.

Ray of Light

We wanted to portray the contrast between the neon pop of color from Naven’s ultra-modern Spring/Summer Collection and the dark city skyscrapers of Downtown Los Angeles.  We shot with the always lovely Margaux Brooke of “the Face” and who recently walked the Marc Jacobs show and modeled for Alice and Olivia in New York Fashion Week.  The shoot portrays the modern day city girl who looks her best no matter the situation.

Sex in The City

Naven’s Holiday Collection was all about the party!  We had a blast shooting the Sex and the City inspired dress line, with our girls in downtown Los Angeles.  From November to New Year’s it’s essential to incorporate novelty fabrics like sequins, metallic lurex, furs and pop colors into your wardrobe.

City Skyline Sunset

Take a peek at our photo shoot for our Naven Fall Collection.  We wanted to highlight the contrast between the warm citrus accent of the sunset against the skyline in downtown Los Angeles, and the cool dark hues of the Fall Collection.  Fall was all about Regal theme using jacquards and leathers, as well as Ultra-Modern theme where we incorporated forward prints, cutouts and clean edges.
