daring and always a step ahead.
That is what de GRISOGONO is about. In 2019, once more breaking boundaries, the Maison launched the program “CREATIVITY IN RESIDENCE”. A guest artist, a modern-day muse and a scholarship program will invigorate the creativity of the Maison.
A three-faceted program to unleash,
inspire and foster creativity.
At the heart of “CREATIVITY IN RESIDENCE” is a one-year residency program with a guest designer who proposes his interpretation of the Maison’s codes.
The second is a collaboration with an artist from another creative discipline who, like a modern-day Muse, will be a dynamic force of inspiration for the in-house Creative Studio.
Looking to the future, the third facet is a scholarship program with Geneva’s HEAD, one of Europe’s leading schools of art and design and a powerhouse of self-expression and artistic partnerships.
“Art, in its many shapes, is and has always been a central element in the house’s inspirations.
This programme is a striking new way of continuing our legacy of absolute creativity and freedom”,
says de GRISOGONO’s CEO Céline Assimon.
de GRISOGONO’s Artist in Residence
de GRISOGONO is proud to announce that jewelry designer Emmanuel Tarpin is the first Artist in Residence of the Maison. Emmanuel will reinterpret the codes of de GRISOGONO through capsule collections.
Named Designer of the Year at the Town and Country Jewelry Awards, 27 year-old French designer Emmanuel Tarpin is one of the rising stars in the world of High Jewelry. In December 2017, his first earrings were sold at a New York Christie’s auction, marking his debut as a sought-after name. Sometimes abstract or highly ornate and romantic, his range of work is large and imprinted with poetry.
“There is a real connection between my vision of jewelry and that of de GRISOGONO.
Through this collaboration, we are building a link between our two universes while sharing our common notion of innovation, and I am thrilled to be part of it”,
says Emmanuel Tarpin of the collaboration.
