As Parisian jewellery house Messika marked its 10th anniversary this year, its founder Valérie Messika looked to one of the biggest stars on the international fashion scene to create a collection celebrating this milestone. Gigi Hadid’s global influence is undeniable, with over 36 million Instagram followers as of October 2017 and a handful of wildly successful collaborations under her belt; she’d make an enviable partner for any brand. However, it is not just her star status that drew Messika to Hadid. ‘She is spontaneous, sunny and bright,’ remarks Messika. ‘Gigi is the embodiment of the Messika woman.’
Hadid was heavily involved with the maison’s new project from start to finish, bringing her discerning eye for detail and rock’n’roll style to the process. The finished product is a reimagining of Move, the house’s most iconic collection. Move Addiction incorporates punk accents and quirky details such as a transformable choker and a sculptural earcuff to give a classic combination of diamonds and gold a very modern edge. Each piece is available in three colours of gold (white, pink and yellow) and in full pavé diamond and non-pavé versions, giving endless options to this wearable, contemporary collection. Messika was so taken with the initial capsule collection she decided to add an extra four pieces of exceptional high jewellery, merging the worlds of haute joaillerie and rebellious youth culture in a way both Messika herself and Hadid do so well.
