Chopard collaborates with Rihanna to launch special creations
April 13, 2017: Swiss luxury jewelry and watch brand, Chopard, announced a collaboration with performer Rihanna, to capture her vision and ideas in the form of stunning jewelry collections. For the RIHANNA ♥ CHOPARD collections, Rihanna and Chopard Co-President and Creative Director, Caroline Scheufele, worked closely together to combine their creativity and passion to develop Haute Joaillerie and Joaillerie collections that blend urban chic with classic glamour.
The RIHANNA ♥ CHOPARD Haute Joaillerie collection is modern and inspired by Rihanna’s island roots – the lush gardens of Barbados and the electricity of Carnival. This vibrant collection will debut in May 2017 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Festival de Cannes, and celebrate Chopard’s 20th year as the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival. Giving a sneak peek of the capsule collection, Rihanna made appearances in a one-of-a-kind pair of floral inspired multi-colored chandelier earrings, a marquise-cut diamond solitaire ring and a pair of transformable diamond earrings from the collection.
The limited edition RIHANNA ♥ CHOPARD Joaillerie collection, on the other hand, is defined by minimalist geometry and sharp, clean lines. A synergy of urban modernism and pure design gives Chopard’s classic Ice Cube shape a powerful sense of self and introduces new designs and colored ceramic into the line. Linear rectangular motifs link frosty rose gold cubes with solid ceramic blocks in a color personally selected by Rihanna – Jungle Green. Crafted from 18ct rose ethical gold certified Fairmined, the 9-piece capsule collection will be available with icy polished or diamond set gold cubes. Pieces will be available in June with pre-orders online at www.chopard.com/us/rihanna-loves-chopard and Chopard boutiques.
