For its new high-jewelry collection, Chanel looked to one of the most enduring symbols of the house: the camellia flower, prized by Gabrielle Chanel for its perfect symmetry and lack of scent.
The 99-piece Jardin de Camélias line is Chanel’s first dedicated entirely to the bloom. It includes diamond dazzlers and black-and-white variations, but also pieces set with a rainbow of colored stones, including opals, multicolored sapphires, rubellites, mandarin garnets and tourmalines. “We wanted to bring some color to this floral world,” said Benjamin Comar, international director of Chanel Fine Jewelry. “It was important to rework the camellia, which is a strong symbol for us, but to do it in a different way than in the past.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
