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.
