LVMH partners with Repossi

Gaia Repossi takes her firm forward with investment from LVMH

The Italian jewellery house of Repossi is teaming up with LVMH — as the French luxury conglomerate takes a non-controlling stake in a company that has already been injected with a young, creative spirit.

Under the radar except in the fashion world, Gaia Repossi has attracted high-level clients, including Natalia Vodianova, the partner of Antoine Arnault who, along with his sister Delfine, is heir to the LVMH empire

Gaia Repossi, who was appointed creative and artistic director in 2007 at the age of 21, studied contemporary art, architecture and archaeology. Her interest in sculpturally aware artists such as Alexander Calder, Cy Twombly and Richard Serra ignited her interest in brutalist and minimalist movements.

The result is Repossi's rare sense of jewellery linked to architecture and sculpture, with modernism at the core. Speaking at the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference (h in Florence earlier this year, Gaia also expressed her wish for jewellery to respect a modern woman's attitude. Significantly, she has collaborated with Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra - both American designers of her own generation.

Repossi’s White Noise collection

Founded in Turin, Italy, in 1920, Repossi jewellery has been an echo chamber of contemporary design for four generations, starting with art deco and leading to Gaia's collections inspired by the Berbers of north Africa.

Delphine Arnault, an LVMH director and member of the company's family, announced herself "delighted to support the development of Repossi", which she believes shares the investor's core values.
