A new step for the brand, which has also revealed its virtual showroom earlier this year: acreative platform introducing to the world of the brand through videos, 3D animations andplayful imagery designed by the creative team at M/M Paris, made for professionals to revisit the label’s classic pieces and discover new collections.
“The idea of working with colour came during the first lockdown. We were all together,somehow, but really apart. Alone in Paris, or elsewhere, and feeling pretty separated. Ideashad to be easily made by our manufacturers from afar. I also liked the idea of giving a newlife to our existing items by adding colour to their structure. I have wanted to use colour as atexture for a while; it is a result of my obsession with 70’s lacquered objects – so shiny andinimitable.
I have updated existing favourite pieces from previous collections with colour; touches ofblack, beige, orange, baby pink. You will find some new styles as well, to sit alongsideupdated classics; the Wave earrings inspired by the set of rings with the same name, a miniversion of our Symi necklace, and a new smaller size in the Saturn Blow earrings. I hope thatyouwilllovethem!”
