The basic collection Staple designed by Gaia Repossi and intended for both women and men ♦ ︎
Unisex. It’s very simple or, better, Staple. This is the name of the new collection of Gaia Repossi, minimalist designer of the Maison that bears her name (but it was founded in Turin by her grandfather, Costantin Repossi, in 1920). Now that Repossi is a brand that gravitates in the galaxy of giant Lvmh, which boasts a boutique in place Vendôme designed by the archistar Rem Koolhaas, and it’s been opened boutiques from Dubai to Macao, the new step is the Staple collection, proposed for women and men, at least to those who would wear a gold and diamond earring. It seems that the idea is also due to the partner of the designer, the artist Jeremy Everett. Also this mini collection is faithful to the essential style that distinguishes Gaia Repossi.
The search for lines reduced to a minimum and, at the same time, new, does not derive from the inspiration of other jewelers, from the past or the present, but from artists and architects such as Alexander Calder, Cy Twombly, Franz West, Richard Serra and Le Corbusier, the brutalist, minimalist movements and the Bauhaus. And she, before dedicating herself to jewelry, studied painting at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Then, at 19, he signed his first collection for Repossi, a diamond necklace to wear on a t-shirt. And in 2007, when she was 21, she was appointed creative director and designer of all Repossi collections. We can not say that she wasted time. Lavinia Andorno
