2004 – launch of Marion Vidal brand
Marion Vidal follows an unconventional approach to the jewel. The underlying theme
of her designs is always to establish a dialogue between colours and materials that
takes the shape of geometrical building sets. The designer plays with links and contrasts:
rigidity vs. flexibility, strength vs. fragility, balance vs. rupture, roughness vs. refinement.
Marion Vidal was born in Montpellier and her childhood was filled with drawing,
dancing and music. She studied architecture for six years in Paris and Milan,
before entering the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
Marion introduced her eponymous brand in 2004 with ready-to-wear and accessories
collections, before finally giving full attention to jewellery. Marion develops
her exclusive materials in collaboration with Italian craftsmen. Jewellery pieces
are then handmade in her Parisian atelier.
Winner of the Grand Prize for Creation by the City of Paris in 2011, Marion also designs
pieces of jewellery for famous fashion houses such as Salviati, Céline, Christofle and Lacoste.
In 2012, Marion Vidal opened her Parisian boutique in the Pigalle neighborhood. You can also find Marion Vidal designs in a selection of high-end fashion and design oriented shops such as Le Bon Marché in Paris, Gago in Aix, 10 Corso Como Seoul.
