The Most Exciting Jewellery Collections At Paris Fashion Week SS20

Gaia Repossi’s Blast

Repossi keeps her feet firmly in the present and her eyes on the future with a fiercely contemporary approach to jewellery design. Her latest creations in the Blast collection are powerful, sparing interpretations of the African tradition of wearing stacks of handcrafted gold bangles – together, naturellement, with her signature sprinkling of floating diamonds.

‘Autrement’ by Chaumet

There are few houses with a more impressive archive than Chaumet. At its temporary home on Boulevard Saint Germain while its Place Vendome flagship undergoes restoration, the Maison presents Autrement, a beautiful exhibition of photographs by Julia Hetta alongside historical and contemporary pieces from its jewellery collection. The past and present intertwine in Old Masters-style portraits, which are displayed in equally striking antique frames from the legendary Parisian dealer Maison Lebrun.

Goossens x Harumi Klossowska de Rola

For her second collaboration with haute couture jeweller Goossens Paris, jewellery artist Harumi Klossowska de Rola takes her inspiration from the animal world. The daughter of famous French artist Balthus and Japanese painter Setsuko Klossowska de Rola, Harumi has designed majestic-looking lions with pearly manes in gold-plated brass cuffs and rings. A dramatically-scaled snake becomes a long necklace. In earrings it entwines itself into baroque-style hearts. Goossens, which joined the House of Chanel’s Métiers d’art in 2005, brings its unique savoir faire and equally dramatic personality to the project.

Selim Mouzannar

French-Lebanese designer Selim Mouzannar has one of the finest selections of coloured gems in the business. In Paris, he unveiled more of his best-selling Gemma rings featuring juicy morganites and aquamarines, with the delicious double contrast of gems in different hues and just the right shade of enamel. It is a collection that looks good enough to eat.

Delfina Delettrez

Delettrez loves to rethink the way we wear jewellery. For her latest collection, which celebrates the idea of movement in jewellery, she returned to her spinning Tourbillon bracelet design of 2011. Concentric circles in gold, titanium and diamonds spin constantly when worn, to mesmerising effect in earrings, bracelets and even wedding bands. As always, it is the simplest ideas that are the most effective.

Panthère de Cartier

The panther has inspired Cartier ever since its first appearance in the maison’s archive in 1914. The creature took on a life of its own during Jeanne Toussaint’s 50-year reign at the house. The legendary creative director, who herself was named La Panthère, designed watches, bracelets and brooches that are still instantly recognisable today. In honour of her and her favourite animal, Cartier now unveils Panthère, a collection of pear-shaped emerald-eyed creatures that encompasses jewellery, watches, eyewear and objets.
