MARIA ELENA APREA
Chantecler’s vice-president and creative director is fiercely dedicated to her family and continuously finds inspiration in her hometown, the isle of Capri. What do you love about your job? The freedom of giving shape to my emotions by creating unique pieces of jewellery. Who would play you in a movie? I’d say Julia Roberts, because I admire her sophisticated and spontaneous elegance. Currently reading... Thehare withambereyes by Edmund de Waal, a moving memoir and a quest for beauty and family history. I feel enthralled by this approach to one’s own roots. Favourite super hero? I would surely be Catwoman, since she is one of the few female heroines in a world where the ideal superhero is a man. Red or white wine? Both. White wine from Südtirol and red wine from Sicily. Fashion must-have? Panama hats, perfect to wear at the seaside while sunbathing and reading a good book.
