Marion Cotillard Goes Green For Chopard
We live in an ever-growing ethical age. From foreign intervention to the demand for grass-fed, free-range, organic everything, increased exposure and connectivity to the world has led to a better understanding of how important our actions are to the rest of the world. No country, community, or individual can escape the interconnectivity of the modern age, making it increasingly important to act with honor and integrity.
This wave of ethical thinking has even trickled down to fashion, with vegan leather and faux-fur inching their way towards become the norm, and now, even jewelry’s becoming self-aware. Actress, model, and all around beautiful woman, Marion Cotillard has teamed up with Chopard, known for their swiss watches and fine jewelry, to design a line of ethically sourced and colored jewelry. Although we’ll have to wait until May for Cotillard to reveal the bracelet and necklace that she’s created for the company, according to WWD, we know that she used “opal stones which came from an Australian, family-owned mine.” Cotillard will work closely with the creative director of Ego-Age, Livia Firth, the activist wife of actor Colin, in order to make sure the designs aren’t lacking when it comes to elegance.
As Cotillard explains, “Why should the creation of dreams and luxury turn into a nightmare for the people who are providing the raw material?” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Our hats are off to Cotillard. May couldn’t come sooner.
