They say to never forget your roots. For this reason Alex and Ani always tries to support local initiatives and stimulate the local economy, which is why Designer and Founder Carolyn Rafaelian has made such jaw-dropping purchases like Belcourt and Sakonnet Vineyards last year … she just loves to give back.
Another way that we try to share the local love is by working with local shops, like our recent collaboration with Gossip Boutique (with locations in Wickford and Newport, Rhode Island). Gossip Boutique loaned us a barrage of beautiful pieces for our spring/summer collection photo shoot, and as many of you know, that shoot later debuted in our much-anticipated Super Bowl commercial this past Sunday. One of our favorite finds was the orange tank featured above. Cheers!
