Pick of the day: Gaia Repossi for Zadig & Voltaire
Here’s something to make May worth looking forward to. The heat is on, and it’s only going to get worse in the coming months, but we’re thankful it’s not just rising temperatures and a seasonal dumbing down of fashion that we can expect to see next month.
Gaia Repossi, artistic director of French jewellery house Maison Repossi, has partnered with Zadig & Voltaire for a limited costume jewellery collection that’s set to hit boutiques in May 2011. Dubbed Metamorphosis, the collection of five ring and cuff designs is inspired by Native American ethnic tribes and the ancient world of desert inhabitants.
Taking visual cues from cracked earth in the desert sun, Repossi’s designs form intricate, lace-like patterns that almost look like they were crafted with Arabian culture in mind.
“This is for the girl in the desert, or who travels on road trips,” Repossi said. The silver rhodium and gold-plated pieces are practical to wear travelling through even the roughest of terrains without compromising any of their beauty or femininity.
Priced from AED 1,664 and up, the Gaia Repossi collection will be available next month at Zadig & Voltaire at The Dubai Mall and at Galeries Lafayette Department Store.
