Interview with Nouvel Heritage
Tell me about your collection and who you are?
Camille: I am Camille Parruitte. I am the CEO and founder of Nouvel Heritage. This new collection is a collaboration we are doing with Tina Craig who was gifted one of the kiss necklaces. She loved it so much that we decided to work together on a new collection.
How did your love of jewelry start?
Camille: For me, it is a family history. My mother was in the jewelry business so I definitely grew up with the inspiration. Growing up, when my mother and I would go on vacation, she would pick something and say "Oh my God, this woman made such a nice necklace, right!". So we started designing just as a play together and [later] we both started working in the industry. My mother is more into production. I am more of a designer, friend and a manager. I think jewelry has always been a love. My grandmother gave me all of her jewelry. Every night before going to bed, we used to look at all the rings, and she would tell me a story on how this special person gave this to her for that special event. I love jewelry because they mark an event and occasion and they keep you. It is a memory that sticks with you forever.
Where can people find your jewelry?
Camille: We are mostly sold online. All the main line from Nouvel Heritage are sold on the website at www.nouvelheritage.com Most of the pieces are personable which is why they are sold online. If you go buy online, you can pretty much engrave your name on any piece and we have pieces that you can have your initials engraved. The rings that are similar to the Tina Collection can be personalized with your initials and otherwise the Tina Collection is sold in Neiman Marcus in LA and San Francisco, at Bergdorf in New York, the Webster in Miami, Ylang 23 in Dallas and we are going to be at Forty Five Ten in Houston in a week.
I had the chance to ask Nicky Hilton Rothschild a couple of questions about the Nouvel Heritage Collection. Here's what she has to say:
What do you think about Tina Craig's collection by Nouvel Heritage?
Nicky Hilton Rothschild: I love it. The signet ring is beautiful. I love the velvet choker!
How did you find out about Nouvel Heritage?
NHR: Tina Craig is a good friend of mine and she asked me if I could host her launch at Bergdorf Goodman. I love her and I love Bergdoft, so it was a no brainer.
