Lydia Courteille in the desert

The Sahara seen by Lydia Courteille: a collection in blue and yellow, the colors of the desert.
Topkapi, the Queen of Sheba, the Amazon. And now the Sahara collection or, rather, the Tassili n’Ajjer, a name which in Berber means Plateau (Tassili) Tuareg (Kel Ajjer). For geographical maps is a mountain area of the Algerian desert, on the border with Libya. For Lydia Courteille, however, is the name of his latest collection, always on strand of exoticism.

A trip to this remote area of ​​the world has inspired the collection that incorporates the colors of the desert: the yellow and the deep blue of the sky, but also the traditional clothes of the Tuareg tribes. The collection was presented at Paris Fashion Week: the right time to show the jewelry made with blue Australian opals and topazes, diamonds and sapphires, contrasting with the 18-carat gold. Rings, also in triple version, a kind of harem for the fingers, a snake-shaped necklace (of the desert, of course), a bracelet that matches the design of the sand dunes: the Sahara collection has everything to make yourself look, to wear and also a bit to envy.
