WORDS BY FLORA MACDONALD JOHNSTON
Bonjour! With fashion month finishing last week in the city of love and croissants, what better time to connect with some of our favourite Parisienne-based designers. I went to meet fine jewellery designer (and serious art buff) Lauren Rubinski at her home near the Musée Rodin for a quick tête-à-tête and to see her newest collections.
Rubinski herself is very KOI, upon entering the flat you’re met with gigantic donut ringed sculptures in tonal colours and pastel hues by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, bright paintings, and Rubinski is dressed in colourful stripes, a green pleated midi-skirt, and is practically drowning in gold jewellery and beads. “I love pieces you can wear everyday, I like to mix without thinking about it. Jewellery should not just be for a ball, and there shouldn't be a specific reason as to why you wear it, you should be able to add as much as you want and feel free,” said Rubinski when asked about her serious penchant for extreme layering.
