Actress Angelina Jolie (or as she’s known to sharp-tongued comediennce Chelsea Handler: “C-nt, Wh-re, Bit-ch”) has partnered with Robert Procop — a former chief executive officer of luxe brand Asprey — for a new collection of bling, with proceeds benefitting the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
News of the collaboration only came courtesy of Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) Monday, but Angelina has worn several pieces created by Procop in recent months, including the striking black and rose gold necklace she wore in the Berlin premiere of her action-thriller Salt last summer and a vintage diamond choker in her latest flick The Tourist.
“Angelina has very classic style. These are pieces she wears herself,” Robert explains.
So what other pieces can we expect from the collection? A 353-carat pendant worn on a chain of beryl stones and a set of emerald rings in rose gold inspired by “ancient tablet engravings.” Ooh la la… Before you gawk at the outrageous luxuriousness of Angie’s designs, take note: The collection will not be sold in stores, but privately through Robert’s network of clients.
“These are the children who most need a safe place to learn, a place to heal, a place to learn reconciliation, a place to build a better future and a place – to just be children. Yet the education for these children is often forgotten. Tens of millions of children and adolescents in conflict are not in school,” Angelina said of the Education Partnership earlier this year.
This isn’t the first time Angelina has collaborated with Asprey. Earlier this year, the Academy Award winner joined by partner Brad, created a capsule collection of gold and silver accessories of serpent-inspired jewelry and baby accessories, such as an egg cup, toothbox, and a feeding spoon.
