Dilet­tante via Beirut

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

DILET­TANTE’S re­cently ren­o­vated Clare­mont store marked the 10-year an­niver­sary of the bou­tique’s com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing WA fash­ion lovers with ex­clu­sive in­ter­na­tional la­bels.

Store di­rec­tor Diana Paolucci added to the cel­e­bra­tion by col­lab­o­rat­ing with Beirut-based jew­eller Rosa Maria for an ex­clu­sive event where guests could cus­tomise their own Rosa Maria ring, choos­ing from an ar­ray of the de­signer’s sig­na­ture pre­cious stones, nat­u­ral-coloured di­a­monds and metal fin­ishes.

Rosa Maria has gained a cult fol­low­ing for its or­ganic adorn­ments, which are made to be lay­ered and stacked to cre­ate what the jew­eller af­fec­tion­ately de­scribes as a “bou­quet”.

Paolucci said she chose to col­lab­o­rate with Rosa Maria for the mile­stone an­niver­sary, cit­ing the sta­tus of di­a­monds as a sym­bol of beauty and longevity as her in­spi­ra­tion.

“Di­a­monds are tra­di­tion­ally a sym­bol to cel­e­brate pin­na­cle mo­ments in life, and no­body does di­a­monds like Rosa Maria,” she said.

“The re­cent ren­o­va­tion of our flag­ship Clare­mont bou­tique (4 Bayview Ter­race) is re­ally spe­cial to me and re­it­er­ates my ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion for this busi­ness, so it seemed nat­u­ral to cel­e­brate this with our clients.”

Aus­tralian de­sign­ers Song for Mute join the Dilet­tante brand line-up for the new sea­son, along­side trend­set­ters such as Vete­ments, Rick Owens and Acne Stu­dios.
