Rather than open a store, Elie Top decided to create a salon that, like his jewellery, itself held several salons. Decorated in collaboration with Vincent Darré, each salon is a showcase of small, intimate, private, muted rooms. The thickest carpets from Maison Darré blend labyrinths, French gardens, octagons... Mathematical extravagance, forever and always.
The blue-grey walls, with blackened bush edging, echo the brand's jewellery boxes. The dialogue between modern and ancient is reminiscent of the collections' inspirations. The engraved, 1940s glasses develop the celestial theme with clouds and signs of the zodiac. The dark grey furniture, designed by Elie himself, sits alongside pieces by Jansen. It makes one think of the 1910 Viennese style, or perhaps Andrée Putman’s eighties style.
Here, Elie Top works, designs and welcomes clients in a personal, intimate setting to present his jewellery as well as dream up custom designs based on the stones they bring him - special orders to ignite his imagination...
