Salomé Charly

Attaching a great importance to the marriage of appearance and personality, this designer works her creations to reveal femininity and the light of each day.

Who are you?

Salomé Couseau was born in the 1980s in the Pays de la Loire region of France.

The daughter of a cabinetmaker, she rapidly accustomed herself to the artistic domain and later saw herself graduate in Applied Arts and Fashion Design after studying at the Duperré, Paris.

Then she managed to undertake and create her own line of contemporary luxury jewellery inspired by the philosophy of taming nature.

Why did you choose to work in fashion?

Since I was very very young, fashion always carried an important message in my eyes. I viewed it as a means of personal expression but also a means of communication, a message carried by an item of your choice, charged with a history, an emotion, a destiny, to be a vehicle for such an expression...

Can you describe your creative universe to us?

Architectural, sophisticated, authentic, and elegant. Salomé Charly is a luxury contemporary jewellery brand anchored in an architectural fantasy universe. 

Each creation is handcrafted from cherry wood, revealing refined and authentic volumes. Also the light weight of the jewellery ensures ultimate comfort while it is being worn. To correspond with your personality, each of the "wood stones" comes in a different colour and different shape. Finally, its authenticity is validated by the designer's signature on each piece.

What are your sources of inspiration?

The nature and the effects of man as humans descend through the centuries. The object design firmly translates this. Balance is a notion also present in my work, physically but also conceptually in the ratio of mass to the body and mood.

What is your process for making your pieces?

I size each piece individually the same way that you would size a precious stone, in respect of the traditions of cabinetmaking and the proper treatment of woods. Each "wood stone" is polished a number of times one by one until a silky surface is achieved, since varnishing and balance are imperative to absolute comfort and lightness.

Can you describe to us in a few words how you feel about your collaboration with MonDéfilé?

It's a big step for the Salomé Charly brand to be given such a platform. To collaborate with MonDéfilé is a symbol of having been selected - a vote of confidence in my creations and trends.

If you could be a garment or an accessory what would you be?

A necklace, down to earth and with character.

"This designer directs herself by working with materials of plant and animal origin, inspired by ethnic jewellery from historical antiquity, with the know-how of cabinetwork and object design."
