Love Heals

August 10, 2013



[Designers Gunnar, Elise, and Adriana]

At Ode, we call it a "Power Piece." A Love Heals necklace makes you feel like a warrior, an adventurer, an artist, empress, and philanthropist. Family owned and hand-made in America, Love Heals is a company committed to creating the kind of beauty that gives back.

For every piece sold, 10 fruit-bearing trees are planted in Ethiopia. Co-founder Gunnar Lovelace (yep, real name) has also formed partnerships with organizations committed to ending child slavery and child blindness. How good can a company get?

                       

Well, they keep getting better. Recently, Love Heals added Maria Angela Perna to their creative design team. Perna has worked as a Senior Designer, creating collections for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Fendi, Versace, Etro, Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Sergio Rossi and YSL. She brings just another element of power to the already inimitable collection. Ode couldn't be happier about our long-term relationship with the heart, spirit, and beauty of Love Heals.




Come find your Love Heals Power Piece at Ode.

Ines Caleiro of Guava Shoes

July 3, 2013


Ines Caleiro is the beautiful and talented designer of Guava, a collection of dynamically architectural footwear new to Ode. After winning a "Best Student Award" at the London College of Fashion for innovative creations, she was invited to work for international icon, Jimmy Choo. In 2010, she launched Guava, a capsule collection of high-art-for-the-foot, each piece carefully handmade in Portugal. Self described as a "passionate designer who explores new shapes and contemporary structures that allow [her] to express a metropolitan emotion," Caleiro is literally taking art to the streets (and to our feet).

Fleathers: Feathers and Leather Unite

Fleathers: Feathers and Leather Unite

Photo credit: Linda Smyth

This sunburst of beauty comes to Ode courtesy of Linda Smyth, the creator of two accessory lines, Fleathers and Rabid Fox. Fleathers are hand-cut pieces of texturized or brightly dyed leather that are then layered and assembled with care in Philadelphia. Flashes of color illuminated with bold fragments of gold or silver are balanced with neutral tones making these statement earrings bold yet whimsical.

We currently have a selection of mid-length to long versions of the Fleathers along with mid-length attached to hoops in silver and gold.
