Elie Top x Suzanne Belperron

What to do with a chalcedony cuff studded with pearls and signed by Suzanne Belperron, which was broken? Elie Top has “repaired” it. Faithful to his cosmogonic style, it’s covered with a wide white gold mesh and punctuated with patinated silver and diamonds stars. “With its new twinkling armor, it offers itself up to the future with serenity”, explains the designer, who thus closely associates his name with that of this legendary creator from the 1930s. A new form of collaboration, presented by Caroline Van Hoek during “Design Miami” in Basel.
