THE DESIGNER & TIFFANY
When I think of Tiffany the first thing that comes to mind is the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The movie was so popular and famous with the lovely Audrey Hepburn playing a young woman
living in New York city. And the funny scene with her shopping in the Tiffany store was the best!
But besides the movie , Tiffany is famous for many things like jewelry and the lamps.
There is also the well known jewelry designer Elsa Peretti who designed several unique pieces for Tiffany’s. Her designs are a modern , fluid look . One of her famous pieces is the Gold Cuff, designed in the 70s and still popular. It is really a timeless piece. There are several others, like the coffee bean, the open heart that were Elsa designs.
She came from a famous Italian family, and studied architect design, then moved to New york and
started modelling for many famous fashion designers and magazines. Her life was extraordinary –
somewhat like in the movie.
