Aurélie Bi­der­mann

Jew­ellery de­signer

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Back­ground Born and ed­u­cated in paris, Aurélie Bi­der­mann is the quin­tes­sen­tial parisian, but at a mo­ment’s no­tice she will trade the zinc rooftops of her beloved city for the lush jun­gles of south Amer­ica or the cobalt seas of the pa­cific is­lands. Bi­der­mann was raised by par­ents who loved trav­el­ling to ex­otic places and col­lect­ing art, and was doted on by a grand­mother whose jew­ellery and makeup were cus­tom-made in the bou­tiques of place Vendôme— and it’s with in­spi­ra­tion from this worldly and fas­ci­nat­ing life that she cre­ates her gems.

DE­SIGN SIG­NA­TURE By her own ac­count, Bi­der­mann’s de­signs are typ­i­cally French, very artis­tic and ooz­ing with spon­tane­ity. Her pieces were once de­scribed as “an en­counter between the ar­chi­tec­tural lines of build­ings by Hauss­mann and the flu­id­ity of a Hal­ston dress.” An an­tipurist, the de­signer favours or­ganic curves over rigid lines, and likes to blur the line between pre­cious gems and cos­tume jew­ellery.

RE­CENT PROJECT Bi­der­mann’s joie de vivre style is re­flected in her spring/ sum­mer col­lec­tion. Among our favourites are its pen­dants with nat­u­ral feath­ers and gingko and clover dipped in 18K gold and lac­quer, and its maya bracelets made from cot­ton threads em­bel­lished with coloured beads, and the gold marisa fringe loop ear­rings.
