The Teddy Bear
During among her trips, in 1985, Oriol drew inspiration from what would later become among the leading icons of the brand, the emblematic teddy bear. “During among my trips, I saw a tiny teddy bear in a shop window and it cut back all of the endearing memories of my childhood. And I thought: You will want to make just a little bear out of gold?” “Through the years, it has turned into a lucky charm for millions of men and women worldwide and for all of us, it marked the start of our international expansion. Despite the fact that we are consistently launching collections, the bear is always present in several shapes and forms. It is extremely, very special if you ask me”.
