Our team took a trip downtown to preview new collections and they stopped by Monique Péan’s fabulous Soho design studio. Our stylists have always been huge fans of Péan’s sustainable jewelry line so to be able to step into her studio where all the magic happens was quite the treat.
Péan’s one of a kind designs are meant for the client who “has everything” and is on the hunt for something truly unique. She crafts her pieces from fossilized dinosaur bones, petrified wood, walrus tusks, and ancient meteorites, each one appearing organic while also incredibly high end. Péan travels to a new country every year to search for materials and inspiration for her pieces, working with archeologists and scientists to source the highest quality stones and fossils.
Péan has also begun adding furniture and object design to her repertoire, which isn’t surprising given how chic her studio space is. We’re looking forward to seeing what else the designer has in store for her lifestyle brand in the coming years and months—and we’re betting whatever it is—it will be the epitome of modern sophistication.
