KREWE's handmade quality combines optimum lenses for complete eye protection, Italian acetate and premium hinges through our 100% handmade process.
KREWE eyewear features New Orleans inspired design, optimum CR39 lenses, premium hand-carved Zyle acetate, riveted and barreled hinges, 24k gold plated hardware, and a lifetime warranty.
We are a New Orleans-based and culturally inspired independent eyewear company celebrating individual style with modern, iconic frames. The people and place of our city -dense with history and ritual - inform each of our designs.
Historically, the term "krewe" (ˈkrü) is linked to Mardi Gras, a tradition that is uniquely New Orleanian. It attempts to define the diverse group that comes together to parade in celebration of the Carnival season. Our name invokes this spirit of creative collaboration.
The company was founded in 2013 by Stirling Barrett, a New Orleans native and creative entrepreneur. His vision of the city as a thriving cultural hub was his inspiration for launching KREWE. Our team passionately believes in spreading the culture of New Orleans and its celebration of individual style, one frame at a time.
The days (or at least the nights!) are beginning to cool and the kids are back to school. It's official: Fall has arrived! And, the best part of Fall? All of the fashion of course! As new arrivals get added to our racks each day, we are thoroughly enjoying bringing the best styles of the season to downtown Princeton. As part of that, we are pleased to invite you to a Fall Trunk Show Event this Friday 9/16 and Saturday 9/17 featuring two must-have designers for Fall 2016: Sail to Sable and Le Corone...
ABOUT THE DESIGNERS
Sail to Sable
After a decade long career in the Manhattan publishing world, Darien native Jennifer Stocker sought out to pursue her passion for fashion combined with her love of life on the coast and founded Sail to Sable in 2012. Inspired by her Connecticut roots and childhood spent vacationing in classic beach resorts dotted along the eastern seaboard, Jennifer aptly named the brand Sail to Sable.
Successfully satisfying a need for sophisticated women's resort wear with a whimsical twist, the brand is known for its signature classic designs with timeless elements such as clean stripes, bright hues, summer weight fabrics and intricate trims. Since 2012, the brand has evolved from a local resort wear favorite to a national staple, now offering four seasons of chic women’s clothing, expanding beyond tunics and shift dresses to cocktail attire, sweaters and outerwear including the introduction of luxury fabrics such as tweed, cashmere and leather.
Sail to Sable is thrilled to announce this year two fall 2016 collections inspired by our favorite city!
Uptown Lady: There’s a crispness in the air and a renewed spring in your step. It’s Fall 2016, and Sail to Sable is proud to introduce the "uptown lady" collection for a classic-chic group inspired by the upper east side. From charity functions at the Frick, luncheons at The Colony Club, strolls through central park and cocktails at Bemelmans Sail to Sable will make sure you are dressed in style and with a smile for this fall season!
Downtown Girl: Taking you from Mercer to mulberry you are ready to run the downtown social scene and Sail to Sable is proud to introduce the "downtown gal" collection. From lunches at Lure, walk ins to Waverly Inn and gals night at Grey Lady you are dressed to impress in the 2016 collection.
Le Corone is a made inItaly collection of rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. All the products are versatile, extremely elegant, colored and suitable for any occasion.The concept behind the design and style of Le Corone is the reinterpretation of classic Italian jewels such as the solitaire or trilogy. We want our jewelry to look more fashion and glamorous, younger and cooler, yet representing classic evergreens.
Our factory is located in the gold district of Italian excellence, on the border between Lombardia, Veneto and Trentino regions. The care of craftsmanship – as result of over 50 years of experience – and the constant research towards the use of innovative technologies, make Le Corone a very innovative and high quality product, yet in the respect of the Italian goldsmith tradition.
We believe that luxury should never be confused with the price. Luxury is above all quality, style, design, workmanship and materials, regardless the cost. Luxury products do not have to be expensive, they must have character.
Our mantra is: “Enjoy your luxury experience, daily.”
Join us this Friday and Saturday to see the best of what Sail to Sable and Le Corone have to offer and enjoy 20% off your trunk show purchase!!!
