Five Style Lessons We’ve Learned From Gaia Repossi

If androgynous suiting, bold tailoring, and monochromatic pairings are your thing, then it’s likely you’re already a fan of Gaia Repossi. The creative and artistic director of Italian jewelry house Repossi might specialize in gems and metals, but her sartorial eye is also one for the books. The Turin-born creative, who assumed her role at the family business aged just 21, has helped turn Repossi into a brand beloved for its luxe minimalism and contemporary aesthetic.

The label has this month opened its first stand-alone boutique in the Middle East, located in The Dubai Mall‘s new Fashion Avenue extension. It is only the world’s third Repossi store, following boutiques in Paris and Monaco, and the first store the brand has opened in more than 30 years. The architecturally influenced setting (think matte copper walls) and is home to collections including Berbère and Antifer, as well as one-of-a-kind pieces. To celebrate the opening, we’ve rounded up some of Gaia Repossi’s most standout looks, to inspire what to wear with your jewels…

Play with proportions

Fifties-style nipped-in waists and loose, Twenties-inspired pants can work beautifully together, particularly with flashes of tan and light blue to break up the block color.

Oversized tees make the best off-duty addition

Teamed with boyfriend-fit denim and relaxed locks, long-line T-shirts blend the best of loungewear and streetwear.

Black is never boring

Play with different shades, such as this charcoal houndstooth and ebony roll-neck, to add extra interest to the classic hue. Also, while culottes and ankle boots may not sound like much of a match on paper, Repossi here proves quite the opposite.

Diamonds are most definitely a girl’s best friend

… Especially when you use them delicately, and sparingly. Just a hint of sparkle will elevate the most pared-back separates.

Texture can change everything

A ruffle here, a touch of draping there – unexpected tailoring adds a contemporary fluidity to otherwise simple silhouettes.
