Repossi Robert Mapplethorpe An Artistic Collaboration Inspired by Robert Mapplethorpe’s Vintage Jewelry Repossi continues its artistic dialogue unveiling a jewelry tribute collection in collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, inspired by the artist’s works with a high jewelry approach. The Repossi / Robert Mapplethorpe collection will be on view for the first time in Miami with a special installation at Saks Fifth Avenue at Bal Harbour Shops from November 30th. The tribute collection is the result of three years of research and development by Gaia Repossi. Gaia Repossi’s relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe’s work began ten years ago when she acquired a work titled Puerto Rico, 1981 by Robert Mapplethorpe, which still hangs in her design studio and marks the beginning of her art collection. From then on, Mapplethorpe’s photographs regularly illustrated the House’s visual communication. When the Foundation approached Gaia to reinterpret this little known part of the American photographer’s work, she accepted on one condition: to be able to offer a High Jewelry reinterpretation, incorporating all the know-how and technical expertise of the Repossi workshops.
