Marie-Hélène de Taillac Is Having a Golden Moment


Marie-Helene de Taillac
macarons in a special-edition gift box reprising her Arc en Ciel necklace, sold out in a matter of days from New York to Paris and Tokyo. Now her Scarf necklace, a similarly bold array of semiprecious briolettes, along with the designer’s signature Cabochon ring in blue chalcedony from 1997, are being incorporated into the permanent jewelry collection at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. De Taillac expressed her elation with typical discretion: “French museums have quite an elaborate process, so once you submit a design, you can never really be sure of the outcome until you get the official letter. It’s a huge honor.”

During the recent collections, the designer showed a number of showstoppers for fall, among them a “T-shirt” in gold mesh, supple bracelets in a thick braid of gold threads, and new variations on her multicolored “floating” stone necklaces. In a return to her eighteen-year-old brand’s original spirit, De Taillac noted that many pieces are one-of-a-kind or, as with that T-shirt, by special order only.
