What can happen when you drop everything to follow a dream? The designer Century Xie of A L’Époque is a dreamer whose resume also includes stints at Dior, Lanvin and Paco Rabanne. Winning the first-ever PRIX EDGARD HAMON award for costume jewelry, her first collection was inspired by the works of British architect, Richard Rogers. And just like the well-known designer Christian Lacroix said,“CLEVER, CLEAN AND MODERN, SHE JUST HAD EVERYTHING.”
Working with stainless steel, 14k gold and ruthenium and silver plating, faux pearls and Swarovski crystals, A L’Époque conjures functional pieces with an art deco vibe and an unconventional sensibility. A L’Époque surely makes jewelries for a new era. Let’s fall hard for a piece of high-fashion costume jewelry.
