Singer records new version of La Vie en Rose and models jewels.
American singer Melody Gardot has teamed up with Piaget to showcase its new jewellery collection, and has recorded a new rendition of La Vie en Rose in celebration of the jewellery brand’s iconic Rose collection.
Piaget created its original Yves Piaget Rose collection in 1982 in tribute to the brand’s founder Yves Piaget. The collection has been re-launched 30 years on with “delicate but affordable open wire pieces [and] sumptuous, extravagant jewels”.
Gardot said she has been inspired by the Yves Piaget Rose and has recorded her own version of La Vie en Rose.
She said: “La Vie en Rose represents a lot of things for me, but mostly it represents my feelings towards my guitar. What it has brought into my life and how things have changed. La Vie en Rose is like food for my musical garden.”
The video created for the song features Piaget jewellery.
The singer has modelled several of the designs in the new 2012 collections, and her version of the song has been added as a bonus track to Gadot’s latest album, The Absence. The song was made famous by French singer Edith Piaf.
