While 2017 saw the launch of the first collaboration between Gigi Hadid and Valérie Messika, 2018 will solidify the union between the premier supermodel of today and the renowned Parisian jewelry designer. Inspired and inspiring, Gigi Hadid has designed a second, 100% unique, bohemian-chic collection: My Soul. These pieces can be worn in layers, and are a perfect representation of the current trend towards “stacking” in jewelry. Here we shine a spotlight on these radiant and sure to be highly-coveted pieces.
In 2018, Gigi Hadid and Valérie Messika are turning heads once more. The dynamic duo have collaborated on a brand new collection for the second year in a row: My Soul.
The new line, Messika by Gigi Hadid, is a reflection of two strong personalities and its pieces are both sensual and ultra-desirable. Marking a departure from Move Addition and its punk-rock connotations, My Soul is inspired by fashion-hippie styles and geared towards the “stacking” trend. “For this second collection, Gigi knew exactly what she wanted,” said Valerie Messika. “She created a number of highly precise moodboards, which formed the basis of our creative process. She was the orchestra’s conductor, providing artistic direction for these ideas as I sought to bring my diamond expertise and the Messika values to her dream jewelry.”
These pieces settle over the skin like ornate tattoos. With chokers, wrist and ankle bracelets, piercings and hoop earrings, Valérie Messika continues to solidify her position as a pioneer of neo-jewelry. Through the vibrancy of gold, fluidity of chains and an ergonomic comfort when worn, the two friends have worked the diamonds into drops of light faithful to the “mix & match” signature of Maison Messika.
Together, they have imagined an entire world surrounding My Soul – a world of gold and diamonds, as found in the sun-drenched photography of Mert & Marcus. Dressed in a golden frock and worn with the jewelry, the golden colours meld into one another, drawing a rainbow of dazzling light.
My Soul is a chance for the supermodel to bring her diamond dreams to life. A reflection of her soul, the pieces in the collection transport us into the sunfilled world of Gigi Hadid.
