You worked together closely for five months. How would you describe this collaboration?
Gigi Hadid: from the second I met Valérie, I knew we'd make some gorgeous jewellery together. She wears jewellery in a very personal way with an individual style that really inspired me. She completely understood what I wanted in fine jewellery. Her sketches showed very chic, timeless pieces, most of which were suitable for everyday wear. I explained what was important to me: finesse, quality, ease of wear and pieces that sit perfectly on the body.
Valérie Messika: I loved working with Gigi. Her attention to detail and sharp eye for fashion won me over. I was overwhelmed by her peerless professionalism and commitment throughout the development process.
