Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Days after the High Jewelry presentations in Paris and we’re still thinking about all of the collections shown.
The many islands of British Columbia served as the inspiration for Cindy Chao’s latest, the “Black Label Masterpieces” and the “White Label” collections. Fashioned after organic figures found in her travels, the designer transformed life forms like dragonflies, coral, leaves, and feathers into tiny jewel sculptures, where all surfaces are covered in sparkling gems. Highlights of the collection include the Jewel Odyssey earrings and the Art Jewel Peony brooch, with oval-shaped rubies.
Known for her quirky, pop-inspired designs, Suzanne Syz debuted a collection perfect for the jewelry lover looking for something other than your usual pair of solitaire studs. The collection included two sets of drop earrings—one, a series of intertwined discs inlaid with tiny diamonds and a single, colored stone, and the other, a trail of diamonds ending with a teardrop shaped sapphire.
Named for the natural power that women possess, Louis Vuitton’s seven-suite high jewelry collection, “Regalia,” is meant to act as an ornament of legitimacy for the wearer. The monogram and the flower—the house’s signature motifs—are subtly incorporated throughout the collection, often seen encircling a central, colored stone like tsavorite or tourmaline.
