Charlotte Chesnais x Ben Gorham

Could the Charlotte Chesnais-Ben Gorham partnership be the trendiest collaboration of Paris Jewelry Week? Charlotte, Nicolas Ghesquière’s former collaborator, is known for her jewelry sculptures wrapped around the wrist, between the fingers, etc. Ben, of Indo-Swedish origin and founder of the Byredo cosmetics brand, is a highly versatile designer who follows the codes of Virgil Abloh, one of his friends. The result: a series of unisex chains in gold or solid silver made up of two links symbolizing the feminine and the masculine.
