The value of friendship is more prevalent than ever during these uncertain times. Whether it be a call at the end of a stressful day or a socially-distanced coffee catch-up, a strong support system has been the one thing cushioning those bouts of anxiety and delirium; a group of people who love you with so much conviction and so much heart it’s impossible to doubt your own capabilities as you navigate this speed hump.
Together with Pandora, we’re toasting to the magic of friendship. The jewellery brand has released a charming and inspiring collection called Pandora Friends; a playful take on fashion and each with their own adorable personalities.
Under the creative direction of Dané Stojanovic and as shot by Sevak Babakhani, we’re introducing you to the little characters on each charm – and the stories behind them – so you can pick and choose which best match the qualities of your best friends, the ones who deserve a special gift.
Nini the Rabbit
Beautiful, kind-hearted and sensitive, you can find Nini the Rabbit and her huge floppy ears flouncing about Burrow Borough with a cold-pressed carrot juice as she deals out sound advice to her friends.
