The partnership of the jewelry house synonymous with Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Schiaparelli and the opulently vintage clothed French stylist is a perfect match, and has resulted in 12 pieces reflecting Baba’s characteristic style. Referencing her own lavish collection of vintage accessories, the collection incorporates rich absinthe, lapis and blood red poured glass, attributed to the French house of Gripoix, in a number of romantic flourishes. Peacocks and dragons inspire embellishments complete with gold tassels and constructions from a more decadent time.
The Pheonix belt, Geisha chainmail necklace-cum-lipstick holder and Vanity ring, that also opens up to reveal a miniature compact are stand out pieces from the range that is as much about function as it is beauty, which was a key consideration for Baba when designing each piece.
The collection is available now from Maison Gripoix.
