The designer invited to campaign young celebrities, part-time children of star parents, 16 y.o Lily-Rose Melody Depp presented a collection of eyewear and became the face of an updated version of the iconic fragrance Chanel №5 and Willow Smith in her 15 changed Lily-Rose in eyewear ad campaign and become brand’s ambassador. At the same time, Karl Lagerfeld does not forget about the rich history of the fashion house. Each jewelry collection is a peculiar chapter in the history of Chanel. The designer refers to the biography of Mademoiselle, his eternal source of inspiration. This time, Lagerfeld drew attention to Coco Chanel‘s childhood.
Coco Chanel was born on August 19, at the height of the harvest. Mademoiselle spent her childhood in Auvergne region in central France, which is famous for the rich wheat fields. For Chanel wheat always reminded of her childhood, as she considered them a symbol of life and prosperity. Elements of wheat could be seen in the interior of the apartment of Coco Chanel on Rue Cambon and jewelry, and even in collections.
A new collection of jewelry Les Blés de Chanel is devoted entirely to the ears of wheat. 62 jewelry in white, yellow and rose gold, decorated with scatterings of diamonds, tourmalines, emeralds, sapphires and pearls of course. The collection includes rings, watches, necklaces, bracelets and hair ornaments. The main motive — a combination of white and gold shades. Jewelers skillfully interpreted wheat ears, turning them into works of art — instead of grains — diamonds, intense sun shade was created with the help of yellow sapphires. Special symbolic significance of the eternal rebirth managed to pass through the Champ de Blé, embodying the life cycle: young shoots, the burgeoning wheat and dry foliage embodied in earrings and bracelets.
Particular attention should be paid to necklace Fête des Moissons, which means harvest festival, created in 18 carat white and yellow gold, decorated with a scattering of about 120-carat white and yellow diamonds, and placed in the center of a yellow diamond of 25 carats.
