Yves Lapis and Turquoise Necklace

$210.00 inc, GST

Inspired by the original bon vivant bohemian queen, Talitha Getty, the muse for Yves Saint Laurent.

“When Yves first went to Marrakech there was a tiny and archly sophisticated community of which Talitha Getty – the 26 year old wife of John Paul Getty – was the night star. Talitha hosted dinners on her rooftop terrace at which she appeared barefoot, ethereal, rings on every finger, kaftan flying…. enchanting.

Yves had never seen anyone like Talitha before. Later he admitted ” when I knew Talitha Getty… my vision completely changed”.

The Beautiful Fall – Alicia Drake

We marry the the inspiration of Talitha with the icon that is Yves Saint Laurent, by using turquoise for Talitha and the striking Lapis blue stones as an homage to the blue Yves Saint Laurent painted his his Morroccan villa Jardin Majorelle.

Let this necklace inspire you to be as magical as Talitha and feel transported back to another time.
