Audacity, spirit, freedom and creativity, Messika has once again taken Paris Fashion Week by storm with their third High Jewelry fashion show, which continues to reinvent the genre. A brand new 70s themed fashion show at the Pavillon Cambon in the heart of Paris, featuring the new High Jewelry collection, Midnight Sun - a burst of light in the middle of the night.
MIDNIGHT SUN, A JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF THE 70s
Founder and Artistic Director, Valérie Messika, unveils her new High Jewelry collection Midnight Sun. 140 creations with a decidedly unorthodox spirit. Yellow diamonds, snow settings, magnetic, pearls, contrasting colours... A statement of creativity inspired by the extravagance and freedom of seventies landmarks such as Studio 54, Le Palace and Chez Régine. Unique and exceptional pieces that showcase the expertise of Messika’s Parisian workshops. Once again, Messika caused a stir with the exceptional Solar Diva set, with its radiant and intense fancy yellow diamond weighing almost 35 carats. It’s one of the largest stones to have been set since the very beginning of Messika high jewelry.
