Elie Top, Lanvin’s jewelry designer has the perfect name, he is just the top of the top of contemporary costume jewelry design. Elie Top has been designing jewelry for 16 years now. His and Alber Elbaz’s story are intertwined from their beginnings at Saint Laurent and now at Lanvin, where they have developed a singular partnership between a jewelry and a fashion designer, working under the same Maison, creating equally striking statements in parallel. Beside his creative talent, his dandy look is really cool.
Top atittude: “Everyday I wake up and I tell myself that I am happy to be here”.
Top advice: ” I don’t understand this obsession with the stone. If the setting does not inspire me, then the stone doesn’t really matter to me. Buying jewelry to secure a social status is not my cup of tea, either. The carats, the alignment, the shine—although who doesn’t like shiny things? It is amusing for a while, but it doesn’t make for a very interesting purchasing choice.”
