Meet Kelsey Armstrong, the mind that brought Haricot Vert to fruition. Having called many places home, it was her time in France that really sparked her imagination. Kelsey moved to Paris in 2014 to study abroad. At that time, she took a mixed media and collage class that piqued her curiosity about the medium, which would later become the foundation of her brand.
She became obsessed with French culture, adopting the language and immersing herself in experiences that filled her mind’s canvas. She later brought her accumulated inspiration to the vibrant city of New York, which became the home of Haricot Vert. She began playing with collage in the form of whimsical jewelry, piecing together imaginative concepts that could be worn and interpreted in countless ways.
