Jewelry Dress by Taher Chemirik
by Yvan / October 15, 2010
Paris designer Taher Chemirik presents "robes-bijoux" at Galerie BSL . The necklace can be worn on its own or can be associated to a dress that naturally becomes an accessory to the jewel.

Each necklace is made of yellow gold and is articulated around the colors of a dominant stone, a malachite, lapis-lazuli, tourmaline, turquoise, emerald of Colombia, along with the brightness of small diamonds. The associated dress (top, short or long) is made of jersey, silk or crepe.


"Every jewel is always a unique rendez-vous" says Chemirik. "A volume, a movement, the surprise of a material, the brightness of a diamond on a raw mineral, the accident of a stone voluntarily broken among others that are intact. I like the idea of a jewel which challenges the space and the conventions. For me, beauty is always evidence... and a surprise ".


The Algerian-born Chemirik is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. In 1990, he decided to concentrate on jewelery and his designs were incorporated into collections by Chloé, Hermès, Balenciaga, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and several others. Today, his pieces are part of permanent collections at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
