LeSportsac and Erickson Beamon Bling On for Holiday 2014!

LeSportsac and celebrated jewelry empire, Erickson Beamon, reunite for Holiday 2014 proving that there is no such thing as over accessorizing. The Winter Collection introduces a new print and fabrication, new placements, and a new style just in time for your next holiday party.

Holiday adds Duchess of Fabulous, a photo-real crystal print softened with touches of blush, inspired by Erickson Beamon’s own holiday jewelry collection. This print will be available in 10 styles, including the new gift worthy and dainty Debbie Wristlet. Its gold-tone metal frame enclosure brings holiday shine, and its ripstop nylon handle easily slips over the wrist just like your favorite bracelet.

New Ballet Diamond Debossed is a sophisticated patent color-matched to traditional ballet slippers, debossed with a subtle geometric diamond pattern. Apparently diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

New placement print additions include the Queen Jerry Tote, which features a magnificent multi-strand signature necklace print on one side and the Erickson Beamon brand name on the other side spelled out in—what else–jewels on a black background. For an added touch of pizazz, the edge of this tote is trimmed in delicate black lace and pretty pearls! The Faye Cosmetic in Princess Sissy Dome is printed with a smaller version of the necklace with a cheeky peek of the back of the necklace on the opposite side of the cosmetic. To keep the winter chill away in style, the season will debut an exclusive Erickson Beamon Scarf in Brave New World. This photo-real dream of diamonds and sparkles will be available only on LeSportsac.com and at all LeSportsac Boutiques in the continental United States.

LeSportsac Dazzles with Erickson Beamon Collaboration

EB_AD_LEBLOG

Very few designers can claim to have dressed both the First Lady and Lady Gaga, but fewer share the imagination of jewelers, Erickson Beamon. Founded by Michigan natives Karen Erickson and Eric Erickson in 1983, Erickson Beamon jewelry dazzles worldwide, pioneering the coveted, handcrafted necklaces that are their trademark. Erickson Beamon’s Fall/Winter 2014 partnership with LeSportsac takes the brand’s signature style and gives it the ultimate jewelry treatment. We got the chance to stop and chat with Karen Erickson about all things LeSportsac, Erickson Beamon, and this glamorous travel collection.

LeSportsac: So when did you first learn about LeSportsac?

Karen Erickson: LeSportsac holds a dear place in my heart. My mother loved it! She worked in little special store in Michigan, where I come from, in the 70’s when I was kid. They started selling LeSportsac and she was so excited about it.  She brought home the garment bag and all of the bags. She loved the product and shared that love with me. I’ve always loved LeSportsac!

LeSportsac: When you design with jewels, what is your ultimate goal?

Karen Erickson: To make the woman who wears it feel fabulous. We want any woman wearing Erickson Beamon product to feel pretty, smart, creative, and artistic.

LeSportsac: What was it like to work with LeSportsac?

Karen Erickson: Working with LeSportsac has literally been a dream project for me. I was able to take jewelry pieces, of my collection, turn them into prints, and bring them to life on a handbag.

LeSportsac: What was your process of turning transforming jewelry into bags?

Karen Erickson: It was so important to incorporate signature elements of Erickson Beamon into this collection. I had so much fun. I love textiles and it’s no surprise that I love to play with proportion and color. I enlarged images of the jewelry to create my own prints. The result is at once photo-realistic and somewhat abstract.

EB_LeBlog_Glenda

LeSportsac: Can you tell us about some of your jewelry inspiration for the collection?

 Karen Erickson: I gave these [print] stories my favorite pieces! Glenda, Glenda the good, is from [the Wizard of] Oz of course. It is a combination of pearls and crystal. We did a jewelry collection called Butterflies are Free so we took the idea of graphics of butterflies and did a placement on the Goldie Cosmetic. I’m a punk rock girl and the Talking Heads are a new wave band. We made this amazing chandelier [for home] with crazy acid pink cameos and called it the Talking Heads. We were able to take this Talking Heads concept and put it on my beloved garment bag – the Patti Garment Bag in Christie, and on the Andy Tote in Talking Heads!

tokidoki for LeSportsac lovers old and new lined up at the LeSportsac boutique in Ala Moana Center and at the LeSportsac shop in DFS Galleria to chat with Legno about the criminally cute and imaginative world of tokidoki. Fans received signed special limited edition posters featuring one of collection’s prints and Palette, a never before seen character created by Legno exclusively for the collection. With each purchase, shoppers received fun signature tokidoki temporary tattoo booklets and everyone had the opportunity to take a few selfies with a life-sized statue of Palette. Shoppers at DFS Galleria even got to take home custom Palette shaped fans because Hawaii is just too wonderfully warm!

In Japan, the LeSportsac Omotesando store was transformed into a huge tokidoki pop-up store. Legno’s world and the new collection were visually brought to life with the integration of his most signature tokidoki products. tokidoki items were also available for purchase at the LeSportsac Ginza store along with the tokidoki for LeSportsac collection. Legno met with fans at both locations for photos and custom signings.

Legno then journeyed on to Taiwan where he hosted a LeSportsac pop-up shop at one of the country’s premier department stores. The life-sized Palette statue made another appearance (the only one in Asia) and giant palette heads and fans were given away to lucky shoppers.

In Singapore, Legno met with VIPs and press to present the collection. The country’s most influential bloggers clamored to take photos with the artist and Legno was kind enough to pose for fans and do impromptu signings.

Legno finally returned stateside to his home base, Los Angeles, and made his way to the last stop of his tour, LeSportsac Santa Monica Place. Locals began a line even before the store opened to meet with Legno. The celebration included a DJ, incredible tokidoki gifts for shoppers, and even more photos and signings. Thankfully Legno made it home and was able to take a break from all of his autographing to go back to drawing more of the amazing world of tokidoki.
