As of today, another Gen-Z star is part of the jewelry industry. Singer and TikTok star Loren Gray has just announced the launch of &always. The brand is dedicated to empowering young people to express themselves with pieces of jewelry. The 18-year-old founder and creative director has spent the last year building a team and designing products while developing &always. The website for the brand will include a "Hall of Mirrors," a portion of the site dedicated to showing off how Gen-Z likes to express themselves.
"I love experimenting with jewelry, and I've learned it can completely transform an outfit and my mood. I feel most confident when I dress how I feel, and every outfit I wear starts with jewelry. I started &always to celebrate the different ways my generation expresses themselves through jewelry and help them find their confidence," said Loren Gray in a statement.
The primary collection of the brand focuses on a look that resembles a vintage vanity mirror, aptly named the Starlet Mirror. These design choices were meant to highlight Loren's (and many young people's) insecurities regarding mirrors and reflections. She's on a journey to make the mirror a more approachable object, not one of self-critique, but confidence. &always is also planning newer collections, calling them Editions.
