The love story between Rihanna and Chopard has been developing on red carpets all over the world throughout the last few years. Now, this bedazzling duo has partnered to push Haute Joaillerie beyond conventional limits to create a modern collection inspired by Rihanna’s island roots; the lush gardens of Barbados and the electricity of Carnival.
This vibrant collection will debut in May 2017 to help commemorate the 70th anniversary of the most spectacular red-carpet in the world, the Festival de Cannes, and celebrate Chopard’s 20th year as the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival. However, Rihanna has already been giving fans a sneak peek of the capsule collection: at the recent Grammy Awards, she dazzled in a one-of-a-kind pair of floral inspired multi-coloured chandelier earrings and marquise-cut diamond solitaire ring.
The Swiss luxury jewellery and watch Maison, Rihanna and Chopard Co-President and Creative Director, Caroline Scheufele, worked closely together to combine their creativity and passion to develop Haute Joaillerie and Joaillerie collections that blend urban chic with classic glamour.
“I have always been in love with Chopard’s exquisite jewellery, so to actually design collections with them is something I still can’t believe,” says Rihanna. “It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“Rihanna and I collaborated closely on the collections so you can feel her unstoppable energy, strong creativity, and natural sense of design in every piece,” says Caroline Scheufele. “With her unique style, she redefines the way people see and wear jewellery.”
