With CFDA Awards ceremony approaching on June 3rd, all eyes are on the nominees – and our eyes are on the immaculate designs of jeweler Marc Alary. Our stylist, Anouk Colantoni, introduced us to the French born, NYC based designer last year after working on his presentation for the 2013 CFDA – in which he was the Runner Up. After working for major name fashion houses DKNY, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs (where he worked with all three lines as graphics and jewelry designer), Alary started his eponymous jewelry line in 2009. The highlight of the collection? These cheeky monkeys, clutching clusters of sapphire grapes. Who knew whimsical could be so luxe?
