LONDON — Kilian Hennessy and jewelry designer Elie Top have given their first joint interview since forming a partnership earlier this year to create a scented jewelry collection, which will be launched next month.
The Paris-based designer, who created accessories with Alber Elbaz during his tenure at Lanvin for 15 years, continues to design for the house alongside his namesake fine jewelry collection. Top and Hennessy met at a mutual friend’s dinner party. Hennessy’s wife — a longtime fan of Top’s work for Lanvin — had donned a pair of heavy earrings, which became a conversation starter.
