After three years of research and development, jewelry retailer Repossi will debut an accessories collection inspired by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe's jewelry on May 6 via licensing agent Artestar.

The eight-piece collection will be presented exclusively through the Dover Street Market stores starting in New York, followed by the Los Angeles store in July and the London store in August, before reaching Paris at the Repossi flagship store at Place Vendôme.

"The Mapplethorpe Foundation invited me to create jewelry influenced by the jewelry pieces Robert Mapplethorpe made with beads and found objects early in his career," says Gaia Repossi, creative director, Repossi. "I was able to access his entire archive of jewelry and jewelry materials at the Getty Research Institute. This collection is a tribute to his genius aesthetic and the beautiful items he assembled."

A second Mapplethorpe collection featuring seven pieces will be released in 2022.
