The designer and designer of a new French jewelry collection, a lookbook featuring a range of beautiful French jewelry, is making an effort to make things easy for the rest of us.
In a new interview with Design Notes, the designer of the new collection, René Guilhier, explains that a great deal of the inspiration for the new collections came from his own love of couture and French fashion.
He explained that he was inspired by the works of his aunt, an art historian, who taught him how to create pieces that were simple and elegant.
His new collection includes two new collections of French jewelry made with silk thread, an incredibly lightweight material that Guilwier says has the ability to hold the same weight as leather.
“I want to create a piece that is not only beautiful, but also functional and wearable,” he told Design Notes.
“There are a lot of things that are being overlooked when it comes to luxury French jewelry right now, and these are the pieces that I feel have the best chance to be seen and appreciated by people.”
Guilhwier has been collaborating with the designer and designers of other designers in France and elsewhere to create his new collections, including a collection called Manchettes, which has three styles, one of which has a diamond necklace that has a glass plate inside of it.
Guilwidier said the collection is also designed to have minimalist styling.
“These pieces have the most minimalist aesthetic, which means that they are very lightweight,” he said.
“They’re all made with the same fabrics, so they’re not very big, and they’re all just beautiful.”
Guillhier also shared that one of the designs in the new jewelry collection features a hand-stitched, embroidered necklace, which is a traditional French custom in which a woman embroider the name of her child.
“The idea is that this necklace will become a symbol of the child’s name, and the child will be able to use this necklace as a symbol that they have the name they have been given,” Guilhid said.
