Monaco-based jeweler Gaia Repossi and model Anouck Lepère have joined forces to benefit the children of Rwanda, whose plight Lepère saw firsthand when she visited the country two years ago. She and Repossi commissioned Rwandan villagers to braid rope for bracelets, cuffs, and armbands, which Repossi then embellishes with silver and gold chains. The pieces will be available at Colette this summer and more venues in the future. And to hear the ladies talk about it, it seems like the collaboration may not be the last. NOWNESS photographer Dana Lixenberg traveled with the team and captured the beautiful people and fashion in Rwanda.
