HISTORY: the pioneers of haute couture upcycling
GIGI PARIS is writing a new page in the big fashion book. We invent an uncompromising Responsible Fashion, which turns to vintage to mix eras and styles, and because the only way not to pollute is not to produce.
At GIGI PARIS you will find every week a new arrival of freshly found vintage nuggets, high-end designer pieces and passionately imagined upcycled jewellery.
Our upcycled capsules are designed from elements taken from ready-to-wear or vintage accessories from our favorite Fashion Houses: buttons, padlocks, chains, etc. We give a second life to the most worn or outdated parts.
Everything is imagined here, everything is found here, everything is transformed here, in Paris,
by our team of magicians 🥰
CONCEPT: authentic pieces, upcycled
We have found some sublime vintage padlocks, taken from old bags from our favorite fashion houses. We mounted these little pendant wonders by hand, with all our love. We work with a collective of antique dealers in whom we have complete confidence as well as a team of experts who authenticate our antique pieces to us.
PRODUCT: Chanel hoop earrings
These are Chanel (1.2cm), gold color. Mounted on a pair of gold-plated hoops, adorned with cultured pearls. Un small clover is affixed in the center. They are sold in pairs.
MATERIALS AND QUALITIES: gold-filled, much more resistant and hypoallergenic
We have taken the greatest care in choosing the materials for our finishes, in order to guarantee comfort and quality. The chips are gold filled, the thickest form of gilding: 14 carats, or 50 to 100 times more gold than a jewel in "gold plated" which makes them much more durable, and especially hypoallergenic.
The findings of our jewelry are water resistant. The buttons being made of metal, it is nevertheless preferable not to expose them.
GIGI PARIS invents its upcycled products without any affiliation. It is to meet the challenge of the century, that of the climate emergency, that we have developed these techniques for recycling waste from the textile industry, the second most polluting industry. No one asked us to do it. We are free thinkers.
Our products are original creations by GIGI PARIS, handmade in Paris.
