MESSIKA By Gigi Hadid
2017 represents a significant milestone for the Parisian jeweler, a time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its iconic Move collection. To round off a decade of jewelry in motion, Valérie Messika has devised an exceptional collaboration with one of the most popular figures in fashion today: Gigi Hadid.
Gigi Hadid and Valérie Messika: a terrific duo in exclusive collaboration. Together they have combined their respective passions for diamonds and fashion to give birth to a collection where couture meets fine jewelry. “I loved working with Gigi. Her sense of detail and her discerning eye for fashion completely won me over. Her unparalleled professionalism and her involvement with the Maison throughout the development process deeply inspired me. Gigi is the embodiment of the Messika woman. She is spontaneous, sunny and bright”, confided Valérie Messika. The designer had hesitated for a long time over the choice of a muse who could embody the many different facets of the brand, but in the end, Gigi Hadid seemed an obvious choice. Her international reputation, family values and air of simplicity make her the perfect incarnation.
The Messika collection by Gigi Hadid adds rock and even punk accents to Move. The designs are strong, the cuts clear and the shapes striking. “Move Addiction” consists of 12 pieces. Earrings which pierce the lobes, endlessly transformable necklaces, as well as rings and bracelets, to be worn on their own or stacked together, reflecting the strength of the Maison’s signature design.
Valérie Messika wanted to give her muse the gift of a journey to the heart of the diamond. The designer has therefore enriched her capsule collection with a line of four exceptional pieces. “Move High Jewelry Addiction” comprises a choker, a long necklace, an ear cuff and a ring, perfectly symbolizing “haute couture” jewelry, the rebel chic style of fashion’s hottest model and the subtle elegance of the French jewelry maison.
