After studying at the Studio Berçot, Charlotte Chesnais joined fashion house Balenciaga alongside Nicolas Ghesquière. For nine years, she worked on ready-to-wear collections and was entrusted with the development of the new jewellery line.
Since 2012, she diversified her collaborations with brands such as Kenzo, Mayiet, Maison Kitsuné and Paco Rabanne, for which she still designs leather goods and accessories.
In 2015, Charlotte Chesnais created her eponymous brand and was awarded the prestigious Fashion Accessories Prize by ANDAM. This prize rewards her first collection made of both graphic and organic lines, a mixture of redrafted classics and more abstract pieces, forming a universe of small sculptures reflecting the spirit of their creator.
The pieces are made one by one in workshops of excellence in France. They are available in silver, silver-gilt, vermeil and 18 carat gold.
The Charlotte Chesnais collections are already available in 40 prestigious points of sale throughout the world.
To celebrate the first anniversary of our collaboration, we have launched an exclusive collection of jewellery in limited edition. Re-inventing Charlotte’s cult-classic models originally made in vermeil – such as the famous « Hook », « Swing » or « Saturne » earrings - this collection takes a precious twist with the use of 18-k yellow gold.
A first version is made with sapphires, rubies, citrines and garnets and a second one with champagne diamonds.
