While studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Lorette Colé Duprat stumbled into the world of jewellery quite by accident. She focused on accessories and how they can be used to change existing items in her wardrobe and create something new out of a single garment.
Eventually she caught the eye of Casey Cadwallader, Mugler's creative director. Duprat continues to collaborate with Mugler, while focusing on her eponymous label. His work has a utilitarian aesthetic, but also exudes an undeniable sensuality.
