Where Paris - - Shopping - By Kyra Bren­zinger

For the past year, the fa­mous Ja­panese jew­ellery brand Tasaki, founded in 1954, has set up a high-end bou­tique in the heart of the Ritz Paris ho­tel and ex­clu­sively un­veils its unique cre­ations dur­ing Cou­ture Week in Paris. Avail­able on an ex­clu­sive ba­sis, the Tasaki brand of­fers a fine jew­ellery col­lec­tion en­ti­tled “RITZ PARIS par TASAKI”, the prod­uct of the meet­ing of the two jew­ellery and lux­ury ho­tel leg­ends. Tasaki wanted to cre­ate a col­lec­tion com­bin­ing tra­di­tion and the avant­garde, el­e­gance and in­no­va­tion. The first edi­tion, en­ti­tled “A leg­end” is in­spired by the spirit of the fa­mous Place Vendôme, a sym­bol of French lux­ury and el­e­gance. The sec­ond col­lec­tion pays trib­ute to cou­ture and ar­ti­san crafts­man­ship, for which Paris is fa­mous. Par­tic­u­larly mod­ern, an open choker evokes an open­work neck adorned with bright di­a­monds, while a neck­lace is in­spired by the bril­liant flow­ers of the fa­mous Ritz gar­den. When the jew­ellery ex­per­tise of the Tasaki ate­liers meets French lux­ury, the re­sult is an ex­cep­tional col­lec­tion: the taste for bal­ance is mas­tered in the “Rêve Ritz” piece, the re­fine­ment of de­tail in the “Jardin Se­cret” piece or the panache in the feather-shaped “The Quintessence of Ritz Paris” neck­lace.

The brand also un­veils its col­lec­tion of watches in its bou­tique, fea­tur­ing the Akoya Ja­panese pearl, which has helped build the rep­u­ta­tion of Tasaki as the world’s lead­ing pro­ducer. The “Clus­ter” cuff link is adorned with pearls, com­bined with sub­lime mor­gan­ites in a pyra­mid-shaped cut. Gold el­e­ments with del­i­cate pink­ish hues are named Sakuragold (TM) in trib­ute to the fa­mous Ja­panese cherry blos­soms.

The par­tic­u­larly se­duc­tive “Ser­pen­tine” watch with a rep­e­ti­tion of links evokes the rings of a snake. Re­call­ing the priv­i­leged sta­tus of Tasaki col­lab­o­rat­ing ex­clu­sively and di­rectly with the De Beers di­a­mond group, this piece ra­di­ates what seems like a thou­sand lights in ei­ther a yel­low gold or white gold ver­sion. The “Re­fined Re­bel­lion” watch, which leans to­ward a more clas­sic look, is nev­er­the­less the re­sult of a very sub­tle colour scheme of pink or blue sap­phires. The all-di­a­mond ver­sion ren­ders a hyp­notic ef­fect, draw­ing one’s gaze to the mother-of­pearl dial and the di­a­mond-shaped tip adorn­ing the crown of the watch. An orig­i­nal col­lec­tion for lovers of ex­clu­sive de­signs.

Avail­able at Le Bon Marché, the Tasaki brand ex­clu­sively of­fers its brand-new M/G Tasaki col­lec­tion in the iconic depart­ment store on the left bank. Cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the French-Greek de­signer Mélanie Ge­or­ga­copou­los, this col­lec­tion is par­tic­u­larly bold, al­low­ing one to dis­cover the very heart of the pearl in dif­fer­ent cre­ations. The Sliced neck­lace, cut in two or a ring, adorned with a clever com­po­si­tion of split pearls, en­cour­ages one to dis­cover the magic of the na­ture of a pearl, com­posed of mul­ti­ple lay­ers of mother-of­pearl. Whether through its pres­ti­gious jew­ellery of the “RITZ PARIS par TASAKI” line or its ready-towear “M/G TASAKI” lines, the Tasaki brand lends a vi­sion­ary style to pearls and jew­els.
