Chanael K is the brainchild of two sisters: Chanael et Chloé KNOPFER. The brand's story began in 2011 when their two complementary personalities came together to form Chanael K.
Chanael: Deeply inspired by her feelings, her poetry, her sensibility and her unconditional passion for the for jewellery and the creation.
Chloé: Created with her knowledge of art history and the fashion, her curiosity, her inspirations and her sense of expression.
Chanael perfects her passion for jewels and stones by studying the gemology and the jewelry of Anvers. Her goal is to develop her collections without respecting the standard rules of jewellery design. As a child, she created her own jewels with her mother’s necklaces by breaking them and rebuilding them into new unique creations.
Her sources of inspiration may be around a journey, an architecture or antiques objects.
During the first year, Chanael K seduced shops such as Colette, Merci et Montaigne Market in Paris, Browns in London, The Alchemist in Miami, Excelsior in Milano and such fashion personalities, as Anna Dello Russo, editor in chief of VOGUE Japan.
Each product is handmade in their Parisian workshop.
The new campaign Chanael K was shot at the Palace Galliera, Paris' fashion museum.
