How lucky was the swell group of Houston ladies invited by LAGOS for an intimate luncheon at The Annie Cafe? The  renowned jewelry house chose the occasion for the inaugural introduction of the debut LAGOS Couture Collection, a capsule of one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces that was launched in September.

The magnificent jewels on display in a private room at the Uptown hotspot whetted the appetite of the VIP guests as much as the prized restaurant’s menu. For who could resist coveting the amethyst and ruby necklace and earrings or the amazing suite of sapphires, rubies and emeralds, each set in 18K gold?

It was as much a special event for Neiman Marcus as it was for the invited guests. For the retailer is carrying select styles and the stunning collection will be traveling to select cities across the country, including Dallas, in partnership with the department store giant. The collection will go live on LAGOS.com on October 16.

In addition to event hosts Kate Lagos, the brand stylist and daughter of LAGOS founder and creative director Steven Lagos, and Amanda Willinger, the brand’s chief revenue officer, Neiman Marcus Houston was represented by brand experience manager Heather Almond.

“It’s exciting to share these one-of-a-kind styles with our customers,” Kate Lagos tells PaperCity. “They’re inspired by my father’s travels and many of them are vintage-style heirlooms that have a history within our family. Anyone who purchases one of these unique pieces truly becomes part of the LAGOS family.”

The collection, LAGOS notes, is inspired by Steven Lagos‘ love for travel, wanderlust and art.
