The wild and fanciful universe of Les Néréides has always found its inspiration in travelling. Collectors and passionate jewelry amateurs, the two designers have gazed admiringly at stands across the world. From the ephemeral markets of India, the garage sales in New York and the vendors at Waterloo, Clignancourt,Vanves and Thailand, Pascale and Enzo brought back treasures from every one of their journeys. Old dolls, night lights, statues, vintage jewelry, paintings, knick knacks and novelties with emotional value all nourished the thriving imaginations of the designers and inspired their collections.

In Greek mythology, the Néréides were the sea nymph daughters of Nereus, the Old Man of the Sea. It was a premonitory name chosen by Pascale’s grandfather when they created the logo. When there are fifty of them, the Néréides have the power to reinvent themselves.
