Les Talents du luxe et de la création : Who are the 2022 winners ?

Yesterday, Tuesday, the Talents du luxe et de la création ceremony, which rewards each year the know-how and excellence of designers and actors of the luxury industry, took place in the Royal Salt Works of Arc-et-Senans located in the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region in the presence of many personalities. Back to the nominees and winners.


Last night, 17 Talents were able to leave with one of the plexiglass and patinated bronze trophies, created by the Bisontin artist Paul Gonez. Who are the winners rewarded this year by the Centre du Luxe et de la Création? Summary of this year’s awards.

The highest distinction of the ceremony, the Talent d’Or, was awarded to British jeweler Glenn Spiro. Known as “the jeweler’s jeweler”, his unique creations that combine precious stones and rare materials are considered in the industry as real works of art. The man who attracts the most famous celebrities has been rewarded for the extraordinary jewels he creates in his London and Geneva offices and for the permanent imprint he has left on the world of fine jewelry.

Passionate about jewelry since the age of 15, he is now recognized around the world as an exceptional jeweler, where his jewelry attracts art collectors, businessmen, private clients and major luxury brands.

The Talent de la Rareté 2022 prize was awarded to two winners, who came in ex-aequo. On the one hand, Anne Anquetin for Passementerie Verrier, accompanied by the passementier Yves Dorget and Valérie Blezot, passementier. On the other hand, Sandrine Tessier, enameller and creator of Haute-Joaillerie, also best worker in France since 2019.



Elected Best Worker of France three years ago, the winner of the Talent of Elegance 2022 is Manon Bouvier, straw marker and founder of the Lyon workshop Paelis.

This prize has indeed rewarded both a profession and an actress of a little known art craft requiring a very singular know-how. It is important to know that straw markers, who appeared in the 17th century, are today only about twenty in the world.



Finally, Nina Métayer, pastry chef of the Parisian establishment Delicatisserie, was elected Talent de l’Audace 2022.

The event was held for the first time at the Royal Salt Works of Arc-et-Senans, an 18th century historic site classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And this choice is not insignificant. Nestled in the heart of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, the latter is the pride of the region, which is considered a breeding ground for talent and know-how for players in the luxury sector. In particular, it is the leading watchmaking region in France, with 60% of the national workforce.
