Jean Christophe's style is self-defined and game-like: he plays with forms, colours, stones, and materials. The resulting pieces are audaciously original and deeply imaginative-direct outcomes of his playful attitude and refusal to take himself too seriously.
After studying at the Nicolas Flamel School in Paris, Christophe began his prestigious career working with the likes of Cartier and Bulgari. In 1996, he opened his own boutique, and added a second in 2002. The design concept behind both is the same : establish a central location with plenty of windows to showcase not only the artisan at work, but a selection of his latest creations.
Though Jean Christophe's favorite stones-Tahitian pearls and tourmaline-often line his windows, he is quite adept at working with many types. His efforts center on the desires of his customers, for whom he conducts intense, personalized searches, to find the rare and precious stones they covet. His whimsical creations, though, are accessible not only in fantasies: the affordable "Cupidonette" line allows even those with smaller budgets to own a piece of his fantastical collection. Jean Christophe invites everyone to join in his game.
The designer use mainly our silk braids and lace.
