PALOMA PICASSO AT HER HOUSE IN MARRAKECH

17/04/2013

When she was just 21, Paloma Picasso, daughter of Pablo, wandered into the social tornado of 1970s Paris wearing sky-high wedges and big-shouldered ’40s dresses. She tucked her hair into turbans and painted on makeup that was Kabuki-severe.

The look was instantly iconic, making fans of the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, who hired her to create jewelry for his fashion house. Her career was born. Picasso soon emerged from her father’s spotlight to blaze trails of her own, designing jewelry for Tiffany & Co. — a relationship she has maintained for more than 30 years — and becoming a brand in her own right, with even a fragrance bearing her name.

Today, the 64-year-old designer presents a more subdued but no less stylish profile. She appears for an interview in a linen tunic and little makeup, her only embellishments pieces from her latest Tiffany collection: laid-back elegant. “In the ’80s, dressing up for a party was putting on an act,” she explains. “I used to pour all my creative energy into the way I looked. Now I put it into the jewelry. I have less to prove.”
