Julien Fournié launches his first jewelry

Julien Fournié has designed a series of four pieces of jewelry for the First Creatures collection, including the spectacular tiara and harness worn by the “Dark Mermaid”.

Julien Fournié asked Adrian Colin to bring this line of blown glass jewelry to life.

Adrian Colin is Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2011 and Deputy Director of the MOF crafts commission. He is a glassblower in Dinan. He executes his works based on glass rods and tubes that are fused.


The jewels, made from Julien Fournié’s drawings, which adorn this “Dark Mermaid” took Adrian Colin four months of work.

Nearly three hundred patterns were flame-worked to combine the black crystal and translucent glass to achieve the exact shades. The harness of countless black crystal beads will serve as a showcase for the precious glass patterns.

Four Jewels

The four jewels have been inspired by this Dark Mermaid. Each of them is handmade. The shape is given by the breath for the hollow pieces, by the gesture for the massive pieces, the flame is used to combine the black crystal and the translucent glass and obtain the exact shades.

Each object is unique.

Founded in 2009 by the couturier Julien Fournié, Julien Fournié Haute Couture House has become a “guest member” in the official calendar of Haute Couture runway shows in 2011. This marked a first step in aknowledging Julien Fournié as a promising new brand in the circle of grand couturiers. With this new title, Julien Fournié has put on the runway for the first time in the history of Haute Couture, a collection only worn by black models.

In January 2017, the Julien Fournié House was officially classified as “Haute Couture”. The Haute Couture label, protected by the French Ministry of Industry, is given to a few houses (only sixteen prestigious names on this list today) which are combining the best of creativity in design and the utmost quality in garment making.

While respecting the tradition of Haute Couture, Julien Fournié has also forged new partnerships with high-tech giants such as Dassault Systèmes Apple and Tencent.

Julien Fournié was thus able to digitize the creation, design and personalization of his Haute Couture pieces. He is one of the rare designers of Haute Couture to master the new digital tools. Julien Fournié has introduced a new process in which clients are not just spectators of the creative process. They have become actors in the unique experience of creating a Haute Couture garment wherever they are.

Since December 2020, Julien Fournié has been developing a line of luxury bags and accessories. At first, the idea was to offer handbags seen in Julien Fournié Haute Couture shows and reserved, until then, for Haute Couture clients.

Since then, Julien Fournié has created new bags ranging from evening clutches to tote bags and handbags becoming one of the most exclusive luxury handbags brands.

These designer bags are made in the purest respect of artisanal traditions.

For the moment, these new luxury bags are exclusively available on the online boutique of the House.

In 2022, Julien Fournié has launched few pieces of jewelry sold on his online store.
