FRANCESCA AM­FITHE­ATROF

Hong Kong Tatler - - Gem Icons -

Tif­fany & Co’s new de­sign di­rec­tor, Francesca Am­fithe­atrof, made her first piece of jew­ellery at 15. A trained jew­eller and sil­ver­smith with a master’s de­gree from the Royal Col­lege of Art in London, she loves mu­sic, film, the­atre and likes Asian art and ceram­ics. What do you like most about your cur­rent col­lec­tion? I’m ex­cited about how Tif­fany T is sculp­tural and bold, and very closely linked to the ar­chi­tec­ture of New York, the re­lent­less move­ment, op­ti­mism and cre­ativ­ity you find on the city’s streets. It’s a place of courage and rein­ven­tion. What do you love most about your job? Tif­fany & Co has al­ways been a company of great in­no­va­tors and dream­ers who are con­stantly push­ing the bound­aries of what’s pos­si­ble. We’re un­fet­tered by his­tor­i­cal styles or schools of de­sign. Rather, we cre­ate with a free­dom to make—and break— our own rules. If you weren’t a jew­ellery de­signer what would you be? I would be an in­ter­na­tional trav­eller and ‘cit­i­zen of the world’.
