Elie Top Biography

The last official assistant of Yves Saint Laurent, Elie Top started to create fashion jewellery for the prestigious house in the late 1990s under the close watch of his future muse, the legendary accessories designer Loulou de la Falaise. There, he also met the Yves Saint Laurent ready-to-wear designer Alber Elbaz, whom he followed to Lanvin when Elbaz was appointed creative director a few years later. A 15-year collaboration followed.

In 2015, longing to channel his creativity into more personal pieces, he launched “Maison Elie Top” and its first collection, Mécaniques Célestes, featuring bold and futuristic geometrically shaped jewellery.
