“Byzantine” jewelry by Chanel, collaboration with the houses of Christian Dior and Elsa Schiaparelli are just a part of the achievements of Robert Goossens, who died on the eve of his death at the age of 88. Having started his career with making snuff boxes and engraving Cartier lighters (the master will continue to work on items for the House and perfume bottles more than once), he quickly settled into the world of fashion and made friends with its most influential representatives. Having met Coco Chanel in the mid-1950s and invented the aforementioned "Byzantine style" for her, Goossens continued to work on jewelery for the House in the 1960s and remained close to Chanel forever. Even when he worked with the House's competitors, including Balenciaga, Christian Lacroix, Mugler, Scherrer, Rochas and Givenchy.

The jeweler has developed a particularly active collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent: starting in the 1970s, it stretched for almost 30 years, until the closure of the House's couture line in 2002. During this time, Monsieur Bijou, as he was called in fashion circles, managed to open his own jewelry studio on Georges V Avenue in Paris and create many designer jewelry - for which Gussens is grateful both in France and abroad. In 2005, the Parisian boutique of Goossens acquired the House of Chanel, and today the children of the jeweler, Patrick and Martin Goossens, are engaged in the affairs of its Goossens brand.
