CHOPARD X MARION COTILLARD
Following her most promising entry to jewellery making with that black opal bracelet for Chopard’s Green Carpet range a few years back, Marion Cotillard returns to the Swiss jewellery house for an exclusive capsule collection. The La Vie en Rose and Two Days One Night actress whose relationship with the brand harks back to the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, where she was honoured with the Trophée Chopard, has been given carte blanche over the artistic direction of the project and is taking the opportunity to flaunt her unique style and environmentalist leanings.
Inspired by the graphic silhouette and rock’n’roll spirit of the existing Ice Cube pieces, Cotillard flexes her creative muscle and puts a new spin on the original design. Her wave of asymmetry gives the seven haute joaillerie creations an ultra-contemporary outlook that thoroughly defines Ice Cube Capsule by Marion Cotillard. The French leading lady, conversely, opts to reprise the collection’s alignment of small faceted cubes and its no-nonsense attitude that enable the wearer to stack the pieces at their convenience.
Flexibility plays a key role in the collection as these Ice Cube pieces are made to be worn as part of a mix-and-match game. The earrings are especially versatile. From the series of connected gold rings to the square solitaire diamond stud and the cascading diamond composition, all crafted in Fairminedcertified ethical 18k gold, the set of jewellery caters to women of diverse personalities and traits. Interestingly, all these ear jewels have been designed as clips as Cotillard intends them for non-pierced ears such as her own.
