MIDAS TOUCH: Hot on the heels of its first jewelry boutique in Paris, Christofle will celebrate the launch of Idole de Christofle, its first gold and diamond jewelry collection, with an event in New York on Oct. 27 hosted by Kate Bosworth.
The line, designed by Studio Putman, is rooted in the brand’s origins in 1830, when founder Charles Christofle took control of a jewelry workshop belonging to his wife’s family and expanded the business into silverware and home accessories.
Building on the brand’s sterling-silver 925 collection, launched in 2005, Idole de Christofle includes a statement ring, chain ring, bracelet and necklace in white gold with pavé diamonds, priced from $500 to $2,500. Set to launch worldwide in October, it will sit as a new pillar alongside Christofle’s 12 permanent collections.
Bosworth will be joined by Olivier Fremont, president and chief executive officer of Christofle, and cohosts Bettina Prentice, Sofía Sanchez de Betak and Misha Nonoo.
In addition to appearing in the upcoming World War II-era miniseries “SS-GB,” set in an alternate history of the world in which Germany occupied England, Bosworth is filming “Finding Steve McQueen” alongside Travis Fimmel and Forest Whitaker. The movie is based on the true story of a 1972 bank heist.
The actress is no stranger to fashion. In addition to designing a shoe collection with Matisse and a capsule clothing collection with Topshop, she launched an app called Style Thief in 2014 that lets people snap a photo, do an image search for a fashion item and buy it through a couple of clicks.
