Size and fit
Gaia Repossi: "I play a lot with the collective unconscious, which is why I like antique and tribal jewellery. It is just a way to express a narrative and a dialogue."
Repossi was founded in 1957, so you come from a long history of creative jewellery talent, but initially, you studied fine arts. What convinced you to go into the family business after all?
I didn’t really want to do this profession, but I was living in Paris at the time, and my father had his communications and part of the design offices here in Paris. I slowly started advising him, and later on I tried a few projects and designs, and it worked. I think it was my father’s approach and his way of giving me freedom and total trust; I felt like I could express myself enough. The respect and the interest he had in giving me all the space I needed was a beautiful way to slowly convince me to finish what I started.
I read that you put yourself in the position of a “stranger”, which allowed you to question the foundations of the old world, can you elaborate on this position?
What happens when you don’t necessarily want to do a certain profession or you are sort of an outsider because you are younger and you have a different point of view, you slowly develop a sort of distance that allows you to rethink things. One of the reasons why I wasn’t interested in pursuing this career was basically because of what I wanted to change. I was questioning why contemporary jewellery didn't fit nowadays silhouette. Why it was only fashion that reinvents itself and makes desirable things, and why jewellery really did not relate to me. I wanted an identity that women could identify with. I wanted an image that fit the time we are in now.
