Established by Tunisian designer Nour Ben Cheikh and Clémentine L in 2018, the brand offers a series of holiday-ready accessories, and we are particularly taken by the jewellery.

“Our accessories combine simple shapes and a graphic identity of multicultural inspiration with luxurious craftsmanship,” they explain. “ÈLBÉ collections are created with pleasure and lightness that comfort those who wear them to consider their style as a playground.”

Clémentine L. and Nour B., ie L and B, said ÈLBÉ, means “my heart” in some Arabic dialects. This heart within an L and B has become the emblem of the brand because it is under the features of a true friendship that this collaboration was built.

The pair met while working in the accessories department of a high-fashion label where the idea for ÈLBÉ was born. Now based in Paris, accessories combine simple shapes and a graphic identity of multicultural inspiration with luxurious craftsmanship.

Sustainability factor comes into play through using second hand materials – for example their Horizon hoops are made from left over material from a Parisian bead stockist. They also limit their collections and produce a select amount of pieces.

From gold heart shaped drop earrings, to quartz, glass & palladium plaited brass necklace made out of the left overs of a Parisian bead stockist and of vintage beads found on a Flea market, the jewellery make a subtle statement, but ideal for poolside glamour.
