Elegance is line – Gabrielle Chanel
On the occasion of January Haute Couture week, held in Paris, CHANEL unveiled a new and iconic High Jewellery collection, inspired to the quilted pattern motif: “Signature de CHANEL”.
Forty-eight new jewels designed by the CHANEL Fine Jewellery Creative Studio that are a variation on the quilted pattern and pay tribute to that inspiration. Graphic and refined, they express the purity of line and the perfection in simplicity that characterise the style of CHANEL.
Curves and volumes that give life to multiple combinations and transform each piece of jewellery into a tactile material that, in its fluidity, follows the body’s every movement in a sensual embrace.
The quilting is then the main protagonist, with its curved lines highlighted by the delicacy of its diamond-paved contours.
Or, in other instances, it is gracefully accompanied by azure blue sapphires and aquamarines, or by pearls, grey mother-of-pearl marquetry and rock crystal: all adding contrasting touches and luminous brightness to the white gold and diamond main theme.
