The new mysterious cosmos of Elie Top, between zodiac, hidden mechanisms, symbology… ♦ ︎
Secrète Cosmogonies. That is the secrets of the cosmos or, better, of the stars loved by astrologers. The zodiac signs, in spite of scientific findings, are a game of society that still thrills many people, men and women. For some, associating zodiacal signs with behaviors and forecasts is fun, for others it is a faith. For all of them the whimsical French designer Elie Top has launched Cosmogonie Secrète, a collection that reveals and obscures the zodiacal signs engraved in the jewels, which have movable elements. Jewels that the designer presented at the Couture in Las Vegas.
The passion for the stars, in any case, is not new for Elie Top, who launched his jewelery brand in January 2015, after having worked for many years with important companies and designers such as Alber Elbaz, Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent , Loulou de la Falaise, Baccarat, Roger Vivier. It is no coincidence that his first line of jewelry is called Mécaniques Célestes, which was followed by the Etoile Mystérieuse collection. All jewels are also complicated objects that seem to come out of a fantasy tale, amulets or mysterious mechanisms capable of producing spells. Who knows if Elie Top’s horoscope had predicted it.
