For more than ten years, Yazbukey has given us many collections of playful, creative jewels, conceived by a fertile imagination that knows how to mix pop references with a frivolous yet complex way of associating images. The Yazbukey brooches sold exclusively in the best select shops are at cult status. Yaz answers our portrait.
