PIAGET SUNLIGHT JOURNEY, THE MOST SPECTACULAR HIGH JEWELLERY FROM PARIS COUTURE WEEK 2017
Such an exciting time at Paris Haute Couture week that I can’t wait to tell you all about it. I’m going to show you some of the most exquisite jewels from the world’s most famous haute jewellery houses.
Twice a year this magnificent event takes over the City of Love. It’s a time where fashion designers and jewellery designers come together to showcase their haute collections. It was going to be a jam-packed schedule of previewing the latest high jewellery collections from more than 20 jewellers.
I spent the week hopping from suite to suite at the Ritz Paris Hotel, and from boutique to boutique at the Place Vendome for an exclusive sneak peek of these magnificent haute jewellery collections, a privilege only reserved for jewellery editors and their clients. My evenings were filled with after parties and rubbing elbows with the most respected and talented designers in the business.
But the best part is, I got to try on some of the most exquisite haute jewellery I’ve ever seen, and even modeled some of my favourite pieces for clients. I can’t wait to share with you the superbly distinctive designs I saw, and the unparalleled craftsmanship and innovative skill that goes into each piece. You’ll see some of the finest and rarest gems the world has to offer. What you won’t see is the band of security guards that surrounded me every time I tried on a piece! I’ve never felt so perfectly safe and pampered in Paris!
What I love the most about these High Jewellery collections is the stories each piece has to tell. These collections are the highest form of jewellery-making in existence. Each collection showcases the jewellery house’s skill at sourcing the most extraordinary gemstones the world has ever seen, and the highest level of craftsmanship, innovation, and design imaginable. So grateful to be part of this experience, and to be able to share with you all the inspiration and stories behind these phenomenal haute jewellery collections.
Spend the day with me at the Avenue Montaigne offices of Christian Dior, and step into a secret garden that sets the stage for their lavish new collection of floral jewellery, inspired by the gardens of Versailles.
You’ll feel like you’ve stepped out of Paris right onto the beaches of the Riviera with CHANEL Fine Jewelry and their new Flying Cloud collection. An elaborate beach scene with sand and beach chairs to evoke the spirit of the Riviera, you’ll be inspired by CHANEL’s new haute collection.
Hop over to the Mediterranean now, and lose yourself in the sounds of tropical birds and the beautiful colours of exotic flowers. This is the world of Giampiero Bodino and his latest haute jewellery collection. You’ll completely forget you’re in Paris at the Ritz Hotel!
Enjoy this rare treat and let the fun begin! And don’t forget to share with me your thoughts in the comments below, so I can bring you more of what excites you in the world of haute jewellery.
Piaget’s newest High Jewellery collection, Sunlight Journey, draws inspiration from the splendour and beauty of the Amalfi Coast, my favourite place in Europe. It’s a scenic place of wonder, soaked in culture and artistic history. A land kissed by light and fire and volcanos, and blessed with azure blue seas. To study the changing light as the day moves from morning to afternoon to evening, is for an artist, the most captivating thing of all. It is this Sunlight Journey that Piaget has brought to life in a dazzling new collection of haute jewellery. Blue sapphires, yellow diamonds, and other exceptional gems express this journey through the palette of the Amalfi Coast and the cultivated skills made famous by Maison Piaget.
