Goossens Paris Publishes a Book – Vogue Magazine Discusses
AS SEEN ON WWW.VOGUE.FR
Patrick Mauriès pays homage to a family of goldsmiths with a penchant for artisan aesthetics and couture craftsmanship, seen from Gabrielle Chanel’s gold-plated brooches to Cristóbal Balenciaga’s colored jewels, through a beautiful book of photographs.
From the byzantine influence of Chanel to the delicate wrists of Loulou de la Falaise, colored jewels by Cristóbal Balenciaga, Madame Grès and Yves Saint Laurent and the sparkling decadence of the Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler shows, over 60 years of exceptional jewelry design can be traced back to one name, Goossens Paris. The house’s refined craftsmanship is illustrated through the magnificent cuffs, belts and statement necklaces – in signature gold-plated bronze – that send the light dancing off a myriad of glass and rock-crystal cabochons, all of which is captured in a new book carefully put together by Patrick Mauriès, who lifts the veil on the archives of the jewelry house that lent its sacred savoir-faire to Chanel back in 2002, when it became one of the Métiers d’art suppliers. This artisan legacy lives on today in the ateliers of Rue George V, under the watchful eye and skillful hands of the heirs to the house, Martine and Patrick Goossens.
