The glamorous jewelry designer talks us through her signature style and new collection.

MODA: Your personal style artfully mixes contemporary and vintage yet always remains glamorous. How did you settle on this aesthetic?

SABINE: I grew up looking at fashion photography and vintage photographs so I think I’m naturally attracted to a classic way of dressing. But I also enjoy wearing new designers and discovering pieces that evoke an old-school glamour with an interesting twist.


MODA: Alexa Chung wore your Ziggy hoops to the Brits with a black velvet dress recently. How would you like to see the Memphis collection styled?

SABINE: I love how Alexa wore them! The pieces are so colorful and fun and yet she showed how they can still be worn in a very classic way. For a more casual approach, I’d love to see the necklaces worn over t-shirts or sweaters.


MODA: What is a key piece from the Memphis collection?

SABINE: All the rings—they are stacking pieces so the more the better!


Gold or silver?

I love gold but I always end up wearing silver.

Classic or edgy?


Ballet or opera?


Beach or mountain?

Beach everyday.

Chocolate or candy?

I don't have a sweet tooth but yes to a burger and fries.

London or New York?

Paris has my heart.

Last thing at night or first thing at morning?

Last thing at night! I am definitely not a morning person...
