Elie Top

Griffe Earrings with Diamonds



Magica Natura: “As if magnetized by the song of the Earth, I entered in a dream the heart of the primordial forests and contemplated, fascinated, its luxuriant treasures. And it was intoxicated with so much immemorial beauty that the reverie continued on the paper where I summoned this bestiary and its attributes that had appeared to me: Answering the call, Chameleon, Tortoise, Snake, Hornbill, Crocodile, their scales, teeth, claws and shells from another age – that of their origins – came to populate our mineral forest and tame the city. Trans fi gured into stone and metal sculptures, these animals with their precious armor wrap around the wrist, rest on the hands, swinging around the necks of new and proud Amazons. From one forest to another, Magic of Nature! “- Elie Top

« Passionate about design from an early age, it was through the universe of fashion that the Flemish-born Elie Top entered into the world of jewellery. At 17 years old he left his native north to study in Paris at the École de la chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne, then at the age of 19 he went to work for Yves Saint Laurent, where he made the decisive encounters that would determine his vocation, forge his tastes, and shape his way of working: Yves Saint Laurent himself of course, from whom he has retained rigour, high standards and integrity, with alongside him the designer Loulou de la Falaise, a past master of bold combinations imbued with aristocratic nonchalance, and lastly Alber Elbaz with his insatiable creative drive who, when called upon to take over from Saint Laurent, entrusted him at the age of 21 with the creation of his first jewellery pieces. This gave rise to a collaboration that persisted at Lanvin for over ten years: it oversaw the triumph of “couture jewellery”, finally refreshed for modern tastes, displaying exuberance and relevance season after season. » Learn about the designer
