“The name is a com­bi­na­tion of Venus and onyx, a planet and a stone,” says Eugénie Niar­chos of her jew­ellery line, Venys. Her Rep­tilia col­lec­tion takes its in­spi­ra­tion from am­phibi­ous crea­tures, which Niar­chos be­came en­am­oured with dur­ing late nights watch­ing the Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Chan­nel. While this is her first solo ven­ture, Niar­chos is no stranger to the medium. Be­sides her pre­vi­ous line de­vel­oped with childhood friend Gaia Re­possi, she also cre­ated two cap­sule col­lec­tions for Azzaro, stud­ied jew­ellery de­sign at the Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute of Amer­ica, and ap­pren­ticed in the jew­ellery depart­ment at Christie’s auc­tion house.

Spot­ted at her Paris launch were Bianca Bran­dolini d’Adda and Ta­tiana Santo Domingo, who was wear­ing an Azze­dine Alaïa top that looked a lot like one of her pieces. “It was fake croc­o­dile, though!” she’s quick to add.
