My Stylish Life: Solange Azagury-Partridge

Her innovative, idiosyncratic and occasionally nuts approach to jewellery design has earned Solange Azagury-Patridge an army of A-list fans including Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sienna Miller, Tilda Swinton - and even Tom Ford. We find out what makes Solange Azagury-Partrige tick.


When I wake up I... need a coffee

Before I go to bed... I read or watch TV with the family

Women should always... be women

Men should never... be arrogant

My guilty pleasures... are pencil skirts and wedges

What people don't know about me is... that I'd like to be able to play a musical instrument exceptionally well

If I weren't doing what I'm doing today... I'd be designing something else

If you want my advice, always.... be optimistic

If you want my advice, never... be arrogant

Botox is... poison

My mother... is generous, beautiful and kind.

The soundtrack of my life... has a disco beat

In the end... love and beauty are all that matters

The three things that I CANNOT live without... love, jewellery and family

Solange is one of a handful of creative talents - including Matthew Williamson, Richard Nicoll, Agent Provocateur, Celia Birtwell, Julie Verhoeven, and Farrow & Ball - who have designed a limited-edition Sky+ HD box to celebrate 10 years of Sky+.
