TREASURES AT RITA & ZIA

kri-9
Pictures by James Vyn

JEWELS HERE, JEWELS THERE When thinking about successfull international swiss designers or fashion personalities, not many names pop up in my head but I’ve been quite impressed by the incredible evolution of a jewerly designer and founder of Rita & Zia : Sandrine Barabinot. In just a couple of years, she got the respect of all the country and yet all women (and even men, please note that James is wearing himself a Rita & Zia bracelet!) are craving Rita & Zia jewels. How did she achieved all this success? Well… There’s no magic solution, all you need is a loads of motivation, dedication, passion and above all work. Not to mention that Sandrine always stayed humble, down to earth and came up with an absolutely awesome concept. Of course it was a big pleasure for me to meet her the other day at her concept store, and especially get to know her a little better. I was amazed to see that all of her team is made of young women, just a couple of years older than me : perhaps that’s the trick of her brand’s young and fresh vision? Anyway, she got it all right. And it is quite a family business, her kids themself are wearing her design and her son created the interior of her shop located in the Geneva’s old city which by the way looks totally stunning : very modern and polished.

Can you imagine that Sandrine created more than 30’000 different jewerly designs? So I was wondering, where does all this inspiration comes from after all. It seems like Sandrine is never in lack of it, she always comes up with new symbol ideas for her pearl bracelets, keeps an eye on the fashion trends and gets some ideas and creative inspiration out of her travels. Her favourite destination? Ile Maurice (no wonder why), she told me that she absolutely astonished to see during her trips women wearing her jewerly. As a swiss based brand, that’s quite an honour and I totally support the brand and love it’s spirit and concept. In my opinion, it is one of the leading swiss modern jewerly designer, of course we aren’t talking high luxury jewerly, but casual jewerly most of us can actually afford. And by the way, since jewerly isn’t enough : Sandrine released a couple of other pieces for her concept store in Geneva such as the bag you can see me wear in this post (yep, fell in love with it)… But there are also candles, home decoration, shirts, a parfume and many other treasures. I think, as a swiss blogger, there’s nothing more important for me than to bring my support to a local business who does such a great job! Therefore I am planning for next week a super exciting Rita & Zia giveaway for you guys (that way for those of you who’ve never had the possibility to try it out will finally be able to actually discover the brand) and a special voucher to get a 15% off your purchase at their store in Geneva if you are swiss based. How cool is that?

I love the bracelet where the colors blend and merge with each other, so I usually just right color bracelets: white – green, but slightly rosy salmon and they are very cool :)

You wear burgundy so well!
I love discovering new brands like this one through your blog!

And I really like the red bracelet set, even though all of them are so pretty.

I can’t get over how lovely you look in this burgundy and leather! It’s such a perfect combo for the cold months this year. Did you design that necklace or what it specially made for you?
I love all of these jewels too, and now I’m about to scour the internet and see if I can find some to buy! I live in the USA.
Also, I love the green stack (like most said on instagram). So pretty!

J’ai lu l’article qui lui était consacré dans le Femina de dimanche dernier. Je ne savais pas qu’elle s’était terrée en vieille ville. J’y vais tellement rarement que j’aurais loupé ça. Enfin, non. Y’a Kayture qui se charge de me le rappeler. Cool :D
Le vert est très sympa.

Perfect Fotos.

Hello honey, really love your style and jewels! Come and check my blog and my youtube channel! Maybe we can cooperate! Ciao ;* Ele

I can’t believe that Sandrine created more than 30,000 different jeweler designs. I would say, her mind is a gift from God; she is such a fortunate designer.

love your bag! :)

I love the jacket, is perfect!! Lovely look darling =)

They sure have a good taste in designing bags. I like the one you are carrying and also the jacket. Matching colour indeed =)

They’re all beautiful but the neutral one is my fave :)

Kristina, you look so amazing! This blazer and a bag are just perfect!
I’m really impressed by your style and fashion taste. You are beautiful young woman and you inspire me every day. Best wishes :)

thanks you

Sarah

My favourite one’s the green one! And I loooveee the bag you’re wearing, it’s so beautiful!

…can I say the three of them? Haha! No, I would pick the green one. :)
By the way, I never leaved a comment here (how come??!!), so I’ll do it right now. ;) I think your blog is absolutely wonderful, and as a swiss reader, I think the level where you are now (and where you’re headed, for sure) is very, very high. No way of you finishing your life in an other world than the fashion one. We don’t have a lot of people here who succed in this world as you do, so it’s quite motivating, I must say!
I really wish all the best for both you and James, who does and incredible job with the pictures. Keep on the good job! :) xx

P.-S: where did you get those shooooooes?? o.o

stunning!!!!

Love the green one! Beautiful!
