Inès de la Fressange launches its eponymous jewelry brand

Inès de la Fressange launches its eponymous jewelry brand

True fashion icon, Inès de la Fressange is a benchmark of French elegance. After having developed her own brand in fashion, decoration and perfumery, she is now embarking on jewelry and unveils her first Eclats collection, as dazzling as her personality.

Could you define for us the style of the Parisienne that you represent so well?

Inès de la Fressange : Thank you and in my opinion, the style of the Parisienne is motley, a mixture of luxury and sport, with a great sense of freedom and never anything ostentatious. A Parisian, whatever her purchasing power, will always manage to have style by adding new products to her wardrobe each season while keeping old things. She buys clothes or jewelry first to feel good about herself and not to impress the gallery. The Parisienne is proud but not pretentious. She also has a great sense of freedom.

You already offer a whole universe ranging from fashion, to perfume and decoration. What is your creative thread?

Inès de la Fressange : Most of the time, I imagine things that I want, but I can't find these everyday products in the store. Thus, I met certain people, whose competence and know-how I admire, who made me want to collaborate with them. It is above all the materials and materials that inspire me. But, my problem is more to curb my desires than to come up with ideas! (laughs)

What motivated you to launch a jewelry line?

Inès de la Fressange : It's hard to love fashion and not accessories, be it costume jewelry or jewelry. Personally, I prefer the clothes I will wear on a daily basis than those for big nights and the same goes for jewelry. The idea is to find clothes and jewelry that become like harmonious accomplices to embellish life. For style, the search for sensuality and fluidity seemed essential to me while avoiding banality. I like paradoxes: frozen forms of nature punctuated with multicolored stones seemed new and timeless to me at the same time.

What are your main inspirations?

Inès de la Fressange : It could be exhibitions, books, auction catalogs, Pinterest or movies… But, I also have recurring obsessions with clothes and jewelry. Being obsessive often goes with creativity! (laughs)

Can you tell us about your inspirations for your first Eclats collection?

Inès de la Fressange : Eclats is also a bit “é.clous”! Nails as in a frame, nails for building. At the start of our collaboration with Aglaya (Editor's note: the jewelry creation studio), we talked a lot about my tastes in jewelry. I told them about diamonds cut very "naively" in the Middle Ages or in India (rose cuts), antique jewelry, seen on paintings or found in tombs, about this habit that I also had to live with my jewelry. without changing them sometimes for weeks.

From these different visions was born the collection Eclats comme un poème?

Inès de la Fressange : Indeed, all great stories start from poetry and in the disorder of passions, something often happens ... Thus, earrings, bracelets or necklaces are born as punctuations that give meaning to sentences:
"Shards": the beginning of a story, like a house that you build and it starts with a spark, a diamond around your neck, a nail in your ear.
“Eclats”: a new jewel that recalls history.
"Shards": as if coming from a chandelier from an old house.
"Eclats": finally which punctuates a very French outfit.

What is your favorite stone and why this stone?

Inès de la Fressange : For a long time, I have worn a sapphire on my finger, I like that it is necessary to look at this stone carefully to be sensitive to its beauty and that its color varies from day to day. It seems that it promotes inspiration, meditation and concentration, so that's all good! (laughs)

What significance does the jewel have for you?

Inès de la Fressange : A small concentrate of culture, refinement, feeling, memories that accompany us for a moment in our life and which have a scent of eternity.

Can you tell us about the theme of your next collection?

Inès de la Fressange : It will be beautiful & desirable!
