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.
As 2018 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the best party photos of the year. First up, newlyweds Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra in black tie at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show in September.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
