Traditional gold mining can be a dirty business — literally. And in an effort to do something about it, Mejuri has released its first collection made entirely of handcrafted, nature-positive Salmon Gold.

In partnership with sustainability advocates RESOLVE and Regeneration, the Canadian fine jewellery brand’s new line is made with gold that’s sourced from revived historical mine sites while aiding habitat restoration. 

Featuring four fan-favourite Bold Hoop styles in an elegant plissé texture, the new Mejuri Salmon Gold line is the perfect excuse to upgrade your jewellery collection while supporting responsible and environmentally friendly craftsmanship.

Fashion is a form of wearable art, so it’s only fitting that luxury brand Chloé is committed to supporting emerging artists with its new initiative Chloé Arts.

The French fashion house has launched the program to not only support up-and-coming artists but also continue their legacy of uplifting female talent. For its first project, the house worked with Danish artist Mie Olise Kjærgaard on a curation of eight paintings, including one exclusively commissioned by Chloé, that are now on display at the Chloé Paris flagship store.

“Chloé is about intuition, freedom, and the celebration of women. Mie’s work speaks to all these elements. Her paintings portray women who make their own defined choices,” says Chloé creative director Chemena Kamali, whose first collection for the house coincides with the launch of the Chloé Arts project.
