It is no coincidence that the talented 24-year-old French designer Roger Jean-Pierre (1910s – 1976) began his career working for the famous Elsa Schiaparelli. Undoubtedly, Schiaparelli noticed and appreciated this talent. As a result, works created in 6-year period for Schiaparelli now adorn the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
And for the next six years (1940 – 1946) he designed clothes for Jean Clement. In the period from 1947 to 1958, as the director of Maison Francis Winter, he created jewelry and accessories for many fashion houses. In particular, Dior, Balenciaga, Gres, Balmain and Lelong, for which he has designed about 2,500 models (signed “Winter”, or “Jean-Pierre”). Glamorous designs often included rhinestones laid out in intricate patterns. In his jewelry, elite models shone on the pages of Vogue magazine. Drawing inspiration from the details of the Edwardian era, he has always worked with exclusively greatest fashion designers. Among them – Christian Dior, Balenciaga and for several years was an advisor to Coro on their Vendome line.
After losing his wife and stepson, he lost interest both in jewelry making, and in life. He closed his Paris atelier in 1976 and died soon after.
