Margiela Jewelry Collaboration with Damiani
PARIS — You won’t need a magnifying glass
to examine these jewels.
Maison Martin Margiela’s debut fine
jewelry collection, in partnership with
Italy’s Damiani Group, is supersized, including
necklaces composed of giant oval
links, a pierced earring magnifi ed to become
a chunky ring and a signet ring upsized
to bracelet proportions.
The collection of 14 items is to arrive in
November in 14 Margiela boutiques, along
with a selection of fashion retailers, including
Maxfi eld in Los Angeles, On Pedder in Hong
Kong, 10 Corso Como in Milan, Exception in
Madrid and Saba Song in Vienna.
Prices for the pieces — in yellow gold,
pink gold and silver, with diamonds — will
range from 700 euros to 39,500 euros, or
about $1,100 to $61,800 at current exchange
rates. The collection is being shown to retailers
at Margiela’s Paris showrooms.
Margiela plans to create one fi ne jewelry
collection a year, said a spokesman for the
Fine jewelry is the latest brand extension
for the Belgian designer, whose business is
majority owned by Renzo Rosso’s Only the
Brave Srl. Look for a new eyewear style for
spring 2009 — and coming in fall 2009 is his
fi rst scent with beauty licensee L’Oréal.
