Her Campus Princeton meets Natalia Kraynina and Le Chic

Our dedicated readers of Her Campus Princeton are well acquainted with the Nathalie Kraynina Collection and the glorious jewelry curated by Le Chic. You may remember the gorgeous pieces in our photoshoot: Spectrum

Nathalie Kraynina describes her collection as “a little bit classy; a little bit rock and roll” and we can’t help but agree. It is easy to see the New York City inspiration in the collection. Nathalie Kraynina designs for the sophisticated, strong, beautiful, and busy woman in the City. In regard to this inspiration Nathalie says: “I love living in New York. This is my place. I feel that anything is possible and things can  happen in a blink of an eye. Engulfed in the spirit of the city, surrounded by the chaos of the streets and  the vigor of the people, I find my inspiration here. From the first sketch to the final garment, I create pieces that are truly inspired by women and in the process, I reinvent myself and my ideas come to life. “

It’s a no-brainer that we adore the collection but what makes the Nathalie Kraynina Collection so original is the message behin the brand. Kraynin aims to empower women, inspire confidence, and allow for individual expression via the artistic pieces she designs. Kraynina hopes for women to identify with her designs and her personal philosophy: “the password is love.” Love yourself, love what you do, and love what you wear–words to live by.

Nathalie Kraynina is a socially responsible brand and we aren’t the only ones who love the Nathalie Kraynina Collection. The collection has been exhibited at Williamsburg Fashion Weekend (for the past two years), featured on Chasing New Jersey, and has been featured in magazines in Europe (such as Elle, Eva, and Grazia)!

It is probably safe to assume that you are as enamored with the Nathalie Kraynina Collection as us; our first stop to purchases items from the collection is Le Chic. However, Le Chic is more than a platform for the Nathalie Kraynina Collection. Le Chic is an interational retailor and wholesaler featuring elegant jewelry, shoes, and evening bags. The best things about Le Chic? (1) free shipping for all orders in the United States, (2) most items are under $100, and (3) ridiculously classic pieces.

Le Chic has worked with the Nathalie Kraynina Collection to participate in fasshion shows and events together and sponsored several charities in support of disabilities and/or deformities (e.g. Operation Smile Charity event for Exclusiva Eventi at the Ritz Carlton in Georgetown as well as the I Am Too Charity in Bulgaria for autistic children). Excellent, right?
