JEWELRY DESIGNER VALÉRIE MESSIKA SHARES A FEW OF HER FAVORITE THINGS
JOY RIDE I love motorcycling around Paris at night. My husband or my cousin drives so I can enjoy the view!
Perfect Piece I pair my Saint Laurent jacket with both black-tie and casual outfits. It elevates everything. Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello blazer, $2,290; ysl.com.
STYLE ICON I’ve followed Kate Moss since I was very young. She always looks timeless and cool.
MANICURE MUST The blend of eggplant and black in this nail polish feels elegant and assertive. OPI Nail Lacquer in Lincoln Park After Dark, $11; opi.com.
Footwear Staple Gianvito Rossi shoes are sexy yet comfortable—and the silhouettes are sublime. Gianvito Rossi boots, $1,445; net-a-porter.com.
GO-TO DENIM Hudson jeans are well-cut, with nice washes. Hudson Jeans jeans, $225; nordstrom.com.
Makeup Mainstay Instead of showy lipstick, I prefer glosses that enhance my natural lip color. Dior Lip Maximizer in #001 Pink, $34; dior.com.
SPECIAL ADDITIONS These bangles are from two lines inspired by my daughters, Romane and Noa. When I wear them, my girls are with me. Messika Paris bracelets, $9,790 (top) and $12,030; messika.com.
Latest Launch My new Lucky Move collection with colored stones is exciting because up until now I’ve worked only with white diamonds. Each stone represents a mantra— for turquoise I chose “Be free.” Messika Paris necklace, $4,760; messika.com.
OFF-DUTY DESTINATION The Maldives is the best place for a break. I enjoy being by the sea with no one else around.
PLAYLIST PICKS The French music scene is full of new talents like Bon Entendeur, a group that mixes tracks from different genres with interesting sound bites. I’m also into the Belgian pop singer Angèle.
