Gaia Repossi has been revered by the industry for her creative eye, minimalistic aesthetic and ability to infuse a family business with a dose of modern creativity. At the age of 20, Gaia assumed the role of Artistic Director to her family’s famed jewelry house, which was founded in 1925 by her grandfather.
Gaia’s takeover saw the brand’s collaboration with today’s top tastemakers; in 2010, she debuted her “Burned Gold” collection with cult-fave Alexander Wang for his F/W ’11 show and also her collab with (another industry-fave) Mr. Joseph Altuzarra for his F/W ’11 show. With a background in Fine Arts (she majored in archaeology and anthropology), it’s easy to see how Gaia’s background has translated into thoughtful collections, which are enriched in and inspired by “ethnic silhouettes and tribal” accents.
