Rachel Stewart Jewelry + naKIMuli for Juneteenth

21 Jun

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a holiday in the United States honoring African American heritage by commemorating the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. State of Texas in 1865. Celebrated on June 19, the term is aportmanteau of June and nineteenth, and is recognized as a state holiday in 36 states of the United States.

This year, we commemorated Juneteenth in style with one of our favorite up-and-coming jewelry designers, Rachel Stewart and clothing designer naKIMuli.

Rachel Stewart’s Collection is a splendid contortion of vintage, opulence, gaud and pride. Her cameo necklaces and earrings sport the likes of Michael Jackson, Foxy Brown and Stevie Wonder. She falls in love with the idea of the big life with diamonds, Chanel and Louis Vuitton logo gold-plates. African Continents laden with animal prints, laser cut afro picks, and big bow headbands made of tribal cloth round out her offerings.

Another crowd favorite, naKIMuli Inc. (recently spotted on LoveBrownSugar), translates her pride into clothing pieces. Bold shoulders, loud prints, and body-conscious silhouettes catapult this collection into another stratosphere. And she offers a banging Plus-Size section (for all my Curvy Girls, you know I’m all over it!).

Many a proud woman we are, and the days have come where we are reaching down back into our roots. We hope you enjoyed your holiday!
