Contessina, “My Precious Lace”

Contessina, “My Precious Lace”

"My Precious Lace" is an exclusive hand laced jewellery collection made with silk, metallic threads and Natural gemstones by Contessina.
This elegant and effortlessly contemporary collection is the result of the designer's love for the delicate, intricate, romantic qualities of lace, her long experience in luxury knitwear design and her great appreciation for Fine Artisanship. Artisan lace making techniques are alive since early Renaissance in Europe, it was an exclusive and time consuming practice and were especially appreciated by the royals & aristocrats, as seen on costumes (cuffs, collars) on many Baroque and Rococo artworks.
Clara Poulantza is the designer of the collection while with her sister are the third generation of the brand "Contessina", a high end fashion brand originally established in Athens, Greece by their grand mother in 1958.
Most of the collections are inspired by Art like the "ArtDeco" collection and Nature like the Lotus Flower lucky charm while "Vintage Paris" is made with up cycled vintage finest French silk threads originally used to sew Christian Dior evening wear in their atelier in Athens in the 80's.
Clara is the founder of Contessina London, the collection is made both in Athens & London and sold in various exclusive boutiques and Museum shops in Greece, London and internationally.

Light and durable, My Precious Lace collection blends Fine Artisanship with Heritage to create an elegant, easy to wear contemporary jewellery line.
