Biography

Italian jewellery designer Delfina Delettrez launched her namesake label in 2007 at a press launch held at Parisian concept store Colette. Made from precious metals and gemstones, Delettrez’s gothic and surrealist-inspired designs consisting of animal, insect and skull motifs, alongside her now signature eye design. They attracted international buyers and the brand is now stocked numerous high end boutiques including Opening Ceremony , Matches, Saks Fifth Avenue and Dover Street Market . Her works have led to two design collaborations with Kenzo and in June 2013, she created a flamingo inspired jewellery collection for Miami based concept store The Webster .

A fourth generation Fendi heiress, Delettrez spent her formative years absorbing creative influences from her family and from the luxury fashion house. Travelling between Rome and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil as a child, Delettrez attended an American high school before undertaking three internships at Chanel Haute Couture in Paris, an experience that she credits for having developed her creative vision and style.

In 2011, the young designer opened her first boutique on trendy Via del Governo Vecchio, located in the historic centre of Rome close to the Piazza Navona. Since then, Delettrez has presented solo exhibitions at the Antonella Villanova Gallery in Miami as well as the Galeria O in Rome and in March 2012 showcased her Metalphysic collection at the Louvre's Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, becoming the youngest designer to showcase as the venerated museum.
