For this unique fashion show, Valérie Messika and Kate Moss chose the Ritz, Place Vendôme, a symbolic venue, where they have met three years ago. To celebrate the second chapter of their collaboration and host the first fashion show of the jeweler, the gardens of the Parisian palace preferred by the English top were transformed last Sunday, October 3, evening into a long catwalk.
Valérie and Kate welcomed friends and celebrities who have marked the history of the Maison such as Cardi B – victorious in Messika Paris at the Grammy Awards 2019; Toni Garrn, wearing Messika at the Cannes Film Festival; and the enigmatic Tina Kunakey who has worn Messika on many red carpets.
Through this collection, Valérie Messika displays the full extent of Messika’s jewelry expertise and puts it at the service of women. The result is creativity beyond all expectations. The Maison’s jewelry excellence combines with a fusion between classicism and innovation.
The collection provides a new vision of High Jewelry. A creative, lightweight collection of modern luxury jewelry. Pieces you live with and jewelry you want to playfully wear according to your mood and daily style. Each diamond jewelry piece takes on a new dimension and reveals a new story, a story that is yours. There are no rules to follow, just your own desires!
“This collection perfectly encapsulates our partnership. Kate showed us her jewelry box with pieces that have influenced her life from India, Africa and elsewhere. I wanted to draw on her inspirations to create living pieces, High Jewelry that can be enjoyed and worn at any time, like a second skin.” Valérie Messika
To honor this collaboration, models close to the Maison walked the catwalk magnified by Messika by Kate Moss pieces including Taylor Hill, Cindy Bruna, Isabeli Fontana, Constance Jablonski and Edita Vilkevičiūtė.

Maison Messika was founded in Paris in 2005 by Valérie Messika, daughter of diamantaire André Messika. By designing innovative shapes with delicate materials that highlight women’s bodies, she has invented an original language for diamonds, and impose her contemporary style on a whole new generation searching for modernity.
In 2013, Messika opened its first Flagship Store in one of the most luxurious streets in Paris, at 259 rue Saint-Honoré. In 2015, to celebrate its ten years of creativity, audacity and innovation, the Maison has opened its own High Jewelry Atelier. In 2017, for the 10th anniversary of its iconic Move collection, Messika creates a limited collection with its muse Gigi Hadid, Move Addiction.
