The new bijoux-designs by the French designer and architect Marion Vidal ♦︎
Take a few ceramic elements, add small Carrara marble segments and join them with plexiglas thermoformed and hand polished in the South of France. Now sauté with gilt brass and, if necessary, a dash of vermeil. Mix well and, if you have carefully followed Marion Vidal’s recipe, you will obtain a pleasant, modern, lively jewel.

But, in fact, if you really want to imitate the French designer, you also need an architecture degree, like that of Marion Vidal, who interprets her bijoux as if they were compositions of elements from which a project for a monument, a house, a cathedral must arise . Made, however, according to the most essential, almost subversive philosophy of architecture. Imagine, therefore, conceiving a jewel by carefully studying surfaces and volumes, weight and shades, without considering the addition of secondary, redundant details. It is the goal that Marion Vidal has reached, and that is repeated with the new collections.
Marion Vidal’s jewels can be found in her boutique in Paris, but also in the online shop on the site, as well as in various cities of the world, from Los Angeles to Seoul, in the shops of some stylists (Paul Smith in London, Christian Wijnants in Antwerp ), and even in museums (Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris or in jewelery galleries (Macle in Beyrouth).
