The high jewellery collections that were shown during Haute Couture fashion week in Paris, once again called upon the know-how of the ateliers, showcasing technical feats with new creations in bright colours. An exceptional colorama discovered in four big houses.At Dior the collection, designed by Victoire de Castellane, was seen for the first time by the public as it was exhibited for three days at the museum of Modern Art in Paris. Incredibly beautiful pieces transpose the lightness of lace, the haute couture know-how, even gold becomes a delicate embroidery thread. For Chopard, it was all about discovering the “Red Carpet” collection inevitably linked to the Cannes film festival, on which the house is a longstanding partner. For 2018 71 new pieces were designed by Caroline Scheufele the co-president and creative director who was inspired by her various travels. Stones go together with diamonds, always impressive, like incredible emeralds from Columbia or ruby tassels settle on the neck. Without forgetting the feather necklace that takes us on a journey to the Mongolian plains. At De Beers, four exceptional pieces of jewellery through four stories based on mythological tales, in which, diamonds play an important role. Examples with the adornment called “Ra” the Egyptian God of the sun, also shown with the holy sacred cross Ankh that you can find on a medallion comprised of a three carat diamond ready to diffuse the energy of the sun, it is detachable and can transform into a broach. Finally a stop at Lorenz Baümer, a jeweller also based at the Place Vendôme in Paris through his poetic lines and his mesmerizing collection.With interview of Lorenz Bäumer (jeweller) :What I really liked in this collection « black magic », is an idea that you can work with black. So the inspiration is a little bit like all the painters who paint with black and who know how to use shades of black. So we are trying to make a mix and contrasts that make colour even more present than black.
