Mana Matsuzaki

Mana Matsuzaki was born in Tokyo as the child of two jewelry designers and a grandchild of a gold painter/artist; thus, she has always been surrounded by art and jewelry. She began learning jewelry-making during her studies in law at Rikkyo University (Tokyo).
After graduation, she shifted her academic career toward design. Upon completing the product design course at KIDI PARSONS in Japan, she moved to New York in 2001. After study at the Parsons School of Design, she graduated from the jewelry design program at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology in 2004. In her studies, she was privileged to learn under Professor Maurice P. Galli, known for his design work for Harry Winston.
On her return to Japan, she launched her own brand, LATREIA, in 2006. She later received the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Prize at the Japan Jewellery Association’s Jewellery Design Awards in 2011. LATREIA celebrated its 10th anniversary at an event held at the Embassy of Belgium in Japan in 2016.
She has garnered attention as one of the most talented designers both at home and abroad; as the youngest artist featured in Japanese authority Ryo Yamaguchi’s 2012 book, Top Jewellers of Japan, and as the only Japanese designer in Olivier Dupon’s 2016 book, Fine Jewelry Couture: Contemporary Heirlooms.
Her broad-ranging talents and interests motivate and inspire her activities beyond design, as she has given lectures at Bunka Gakuen University, Lalique Museum Hakone, Nagoya Zokei University of Art and Design, and the Japan Jewellery Fair, while authoring articles and manga in jewelry industry trade magazines.
