Gaia Repossi

Description

This book is the first to explore the visual identity and legacy of Repossi, the influential Italian jeweler across four generations. From its founding in 1920 in Turin to the work of Costantino Repossi and the expansion of the house under his son Alberto in Monte Carlo and Paris, and today as a leader in contemporary jewelry under Alberto’s daughter Gaia, Repossi offers a behind-the-scenes look at the fundamentals of the brand.

The book features an eclectic wealth of visual material, much drawn from the Repossi archives and published here for the first time-from vintage portraits and sketches to advertising campaigns, from jewelry still lifes to the artists that inspire Gaia Repossi such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Donald Judd, as well as her 2016 collaboration with Rem Koolhaas on the revolutionary flagship store on Place Vendôme, the center of the high-jewelry universe. Repossi is a tribute from Gaia Repossi to her father for the legacy she inherited, and a contemporary transcript of the brand under her leadership-shaped by the values of simplicity, curiosity, discipline, a healthy disregard for ostentation, and not a little surprise.

Jewelry should be a tribute to humanity. It’s ancestral. We can’t erase its collective roots. – Gaia Repossi
