andreea ali is a paris-based professional makeup artist known for her ability to create both natural and signature red carpet looks. in 2019, she began a close collaboration with CINCO, and in 2022, a jewelry collection was launched in partnership between CINCO and andreea. over time this collaboration has become much more than work, it has become a true friendship.
we wanted to know how it all got started and why she has forged such a strong relationship with our brand.
1. how did you hear about CINCO?
honestly a friend of mine introduced me. she is a stylish - @stylinginparis - knows a lot about fashion and jewelry and suggest I should try this portuguese brand that hand produce their pieces
what makes this brand unique, and probably most brands, is the people behind it. everyone who works there, from the founder to her husband, and also to her family, have become close friends3. if you had only 5 pieces of CINCO (we know you have many more), what would they be?
that's hard. so first andreea earrings. then i'm obsessed with the constantin necklace, a timeless piece that you can wear over and over again and it never goes out of style. it's just a beautiful piece.
then bia earrings for the win. I can just wear them every day. and mini bia for a less frameless look, you can even sleep in them. they're very comfortable.
and the new ones - pam earrings - they're staple earrings. you can wear them with your hair down or in a bun and it just takes your outfit to the next level
4. what is your favorite CINCO piece?
andreea earrings. because when you have an event, maybe it's not even that often, you can wear a simple black dress or a simple black outfit, but you can elevate it with accessories. and andreea earrings just do that.5. and which one would you offer to anyone (regardless of style or budget) without hesitation?
