Julien Colombier

The artistic partnership between Nathalie Didden and this visual artist is the result of a meeting between three leading Brussels-based families of aesthetes: the jewellers’ family De Greef-Wittman, the antiquarian family Costermans-Jaspar and Didden & Co. In fact, carpet creator Nathalie Didden discovered a fresco by Julien Colombier made for the Costermans boutique at Sablon and fell in love with it. The admiration was reciprocal and they all decided to join forces in a creative partnership, jointly developing a concept around Julien Colombier’s world: Didden&Co launched a carpet capsule collection, while Costermans hosted an exhibition in its boutique. Last but not least, De Greef designed a jewel mirroring the artist’s dreamlike and surrealist universe.
